Kmart is going away. Slowly, but surely. Which tears at a certain heart-string for me, because where and when I grew up, Kmart was the store. It was all we had. It's where I bought my first eye shadow and eye liner. Do you remember the "blue light specials"? There was literally a blue light on wheels, that would be rolled around the store to the next special priced item. Amazing!

It's been announced that another 64 stores are closing before Christmas. Kmart in Fort Collins closed this past summer. This time, 2 more stores in Colorado are closing. One in Thornton and one in Craig. According to USA Today "the retailer continues to struggle with declining sales." Thousands of people will be let go, right before Christmas. Truly unfortunate!
