So long, K-Mart

K-Mart is closing all of its stores in Houston as part of its reorganization efforts. This ends a 40-year relationship between K-Mart and our fair city. You won't find a K-Mart in a 100 mile radius of Houston. Nationwide, over 300 stores employing 37,000 people will be shuttered.

Among the stores to be closed, of course, is the infamous Super K-Mart in the 8400 block of Westheimer, the site of the K-Mart Kiddie Roundup. I suppose that's one way of making sure it never happens again.

First Service Merchandise, then Auchan, now K-Mart? Target Stores had sure better hang in there. What is a committed Wal-Mart boycotter to do?
