This will have a negative effect on businesses causing some to close their doors.

Well Businesses close, sometimes because of economy and sometimes because of bad business.

I do think this thread might be a good place for people to think about good retail space that is come open and what could go there.

I hate the Pelican Closed but I think they really just bit off more than they could chew and got to far away from the base they built up on Stallings Rd and that Pebble Creek group. Good Food however and I was hoping it would gain a foothold.

Sears To Close 100 To 120 Kmart, Sears Stores

Sears To Close 100 To 120 Kmart, Sears Stores | WSPA

Wonder if the few remaining stores around here will see any closures. I remember someone mentioning they were told the the Kmart of Wade Hampton would be closing a while back.

No word if any of the closings will affect Upstate or Western North Carolina stores.
I sure hope Mauldin officials are working to keep our store open. After losing Big Lots we need this Kmart.

Just saw a commercial for The Jewelers Gallery on Woodruff, says they're closing their doors forever - no date given in the ad.

Would be awesome if Sears closed the Haywood Mall store so Nordstrom or Von Maur could locate there.

Sales tactic probably rather than actual closing. They've been saying they are going to close for the past six months at least.

Yes, word on the street is the Wade Hampton Kmart is closing in February. This closing would be no surprise. It has been consistently underperforming, but was spared at the last minute when over 300 Kmart locations closed in 2003. Since then, Walmart in Taylors expanded into a supercenter, Target entered the area, and Winn Dixie closed.

The Mauldin Kmart remains quite busy, especially when Walmart and Target are not nearby.

Thankfully I very rarely shop at Kmart. So instead of a 10min drive, I'd have to drive to the next Kmart an extra 10 minutes away, that is if there was truly something worthwhile to go there for, which I doubt there would ever be.

The ones near my old home in SOFLA were both small, and nasty. Even after they tried to spruce them up, they were depressing and lifeless and seemed to work with a skeleton crew all the time. I hated going in there and usually it was only when they had Pepsi on sale. I don't think I've bought much of anything else from there in many years. DH did like their pharmacy though
