Losing the "Big K" (Formerly of Lost Retail City)


In 2002, the "Blue Light" at the Carolina Circle Mall K-Mart went out. Now in 2007, it looks like the "Blue Light" is being shattered.

I rode past the K-Mart this afternoon and noticed that heavy machinery was picking away the garden center. K-Mart appears to be the next to be demolished.

Also, I'm assuming the rest of the shopping center including the former Big Lots will be demolished as well.

I'm still not sure why they're doing this. I did hear that one of those home improvement stores was looking into that location. Also, the K-Mart was also broken into a few weeks ago and was caught on fire. Those are two possibilities.

We'll miss you, K-Mart.
