Kmart Store Closings Summer Tour 2016

The last stop on my summer of Kmart store closings tour came today at a store near and dear to me.
Kmart -- Broadway, Knoxville Tennessee The Kmart located in the Northgate Plaza Shopping Center at 4434 North Broadway in Knoxville. Kmart - Broadway, Knoxville, TN
The store originally opened November 7, 1963. It included an auto center and a gas station in the parking lot.

After almost 53 years in business, the Kmart closes for good this Sunday at 9pm.
