A once powerful mass merchandiser that was brought to its knees by Wal-Mart and Target - now is in bankrupcy. Used to be a fairly good store in the 70's and 80's but the corporation never updated stores or merchandise. Prices were high, employees were always jerks and the quality of K-Mart clothing was and still is horrible.
