2017 – The Last Christmas of Kmart in Danville, Virginia
January 2018, Kmart in Danville, Virginia closed its doors for the last time. The store opened in 1962 and was the source of a lot of toys for local Danville area children over the years. Lots of Mego action figures were purchased there in the 1970s for me, not to mention the 45 RPM of Neil Diamond’s “America” I bought there in 1981, of which I still have.
I will miss Kmart. Walmart could not hold a candle to this store, in my opinion. I would gladly pay a little extra for Kmart merchandise to avoid Walmart.
Here are a few photos I snapped with my cellphone on November 25, 2017……. Danville Kmart’s last Christmas.
