I wish this wasn't true. I would rather shop at Kmart then Walmart any day. Kmart also carries other things that I can't find at target or don't like to buy anywhere else.
Extremely disappointed. That is a very large piece of property that New Ulm will have a hard time filling especially in this economy.

The employees r very sad along with the community. We worked very hard to keep the store clean and had a lot of pride in our store. We tried to be helpful and make a profit but with news circulating that our building got sold nothing could have saved us. The company wanted cash flow and another New Ulm business bought our building-it won't be empty but it will leave an empty spot in our hearts forever!
