That Mall is sick and that Store is dead!

So I just found out the Kmart in Hampton closed … last year

I completely missed the bus on this one. And this was a big one! I’ve been really out of the loop lately with my Hampton stuff. I rarely go out there these days.

This is really spergy, but for years I’ve had this dream where I’m driving down Mercury Blvd, and I look over and Kmart is gone, and I’m like “wha?”. Turns out it happened for real today. It’s been closed for almost a year, I completely missed the article on Daily Press (.pdf).

This is a pic my mom took back in 1988. This was back when the marchers for the Christmas parade would meet up at KMart. Now everybody just marches through the Peninsula Town Center.
