Kmart #7708

This mall-based '90s Kmart has quite the history. Originally, Kmart was formerly located at the site of a former Town & Country store within Hazleton. In the late '90s Kmart moved from this tiny 26,000 sq. ft. site to tripling in size at a 121,430 sq. ft. store in a former Ames store at the Laurel Mall. So with the history out of the way, let's get right into the store itself. 




Former Hazleton Kmart. Most recently was an Ollie's Bargain Outlet
Time for the interior!


A Little Caesars is operational here.



This is the only Kmart I know of to have a hair salon in it.

Rating & Summary: 10 out of 10

I have really nothing negative to say about this store. An operational Little Caesars, a pharmacy and even a hair salon makes for a nice 1-stop shop. Not to mention this store serves as an anchor for a mall! 

From this post onwards, I will no longer be making a in-danger of closing section. It's become obvious to me that all stores, regardless of how well they may be doing, are in danger of closing.

    1. It is likely that its final date is January 14th, unless things sell out before then.

      I can tell you that I will not be able to make it back to Clarion for the liquidation sale.

    1. Just saw. Hence the last little note:

  3. I wish they'd at least take the functional self-scanners and send them to other stores; Mattydale is down to one and I hate having to walk half the store to get to it. At one time it had four. Victor had at least three, why not box them up and ship them over?

    1. In some cases they have done that. Ours in particular have several that were recycled from elsewhere.
