I looked it up on about.com and it shows 3 Ky. stores but not Paducah's. It showed Winchester, Hazard, and I believe Middlesboro. I like the Kmart one here because it is not as crowded as Wally World and of course, layaway is always handy!

I have never understood that store. I live less than a mile from it. It has potential to be a gold mine.

No Stock, no check out lanes. Just a big Shell Mart convience store.

You could put in a Target store at that location, and it would compete with the Wal-marts. Look at the traffic count that is out front every day.

Target would have no interest in that location. I would like to see that kmart razed. It is junk.

Actually, your wrong.

Target, along with Home Depot gave that location a second look.
Target has never officially committed to Paducah, and you know where Home Depot ended up.

This store is not closing I assure u. New management would do this store wonders though, its hard for one person to do 3 to 4 jobs because the management says "we don't have the budget to hire more people". Maybe complain to corporate about management?

I rarely go in kmart because the building has gotten so run down, shelves of merchandise are disorganized and sloppy, and it has been so hard to find any help. But with that said, I do see some improvement lately in employees being more visible stocking shelves, so I can more often at least ask for help now. They still have a long way to go. I'd hate to see it close, but if it does, I can sure see why. If they would just put a little money into giving the building a better look and straightening those shelves, I think they would turn more profit than what it costs to make the improvements.

Easiest place in the world to steal from. You fill your cart with everything you want, push it out the door, if the bell does happen to sound... Not like the lazy staff is really going to hand check your merchandise. If you can have an old ticket, just hold it up and wahlah, your homefree! Been working for years!

As well as I know where Target would end up, that's out by the Mall. You're wrong.

You made a statement that "Target would have no interest in that location".
I was just correcting you that actually at one time they showed an interest in that property. Don't take my word for it, it's pretty much common knowledge, with a little research.

I never said Target, or any other store would choose that location over the mall area.
