I know it seems like I have blogged an awful lot about Kmart this summer.
The last stop on my summer of Kmart store closings tour came today at a store near and dear to me.
The Kmart located in the Northgate Plaza Shopping Center at 4434 North Broadway in Knoxville.
The store originally opened November 7, 1963. It included an auto center and a gas station in the parking lot.
The store also featured a second floor of sales floor space in the rear of the store. That area was used to sell furniture. (special thanks to Sky City Facebook group member Brad Brady for the article posted above and the information about the second floor!
After almost 53 years in business, the Kmart closes for good this Sunday at 9pm.
With the closing of this location, Knoxville will be left with no Kmart stores operating in the city limits, and one single location in Knox County.
