I worked at K-Mart in the mid 80s. It was a fun place to work at the time.
They lost Martha Stewart's brand to Macys. There isn't much left worth buying at K-Mart, now.
K-Mart has been in trouble for a long, long time.
I've only been into a K-Mart store twice in perhaps ten years. I felt dirty, both times. The aisles were crammed, disorganized, 70/80's floor designs, and mostly garbage merchandise.
Sears is quite a bit better, but it's not some place I really shop at. They have a pretty decent lawn/garden and tool section, but that's about all I've gone there for in ages, and that's pretty rare.

I worked for K-Mart when I was in school. I don't think I lasted more than a month or two. The store was filthy and as a stock boy they wanted me to wear a shirt and tie.
They paid you in cash which was interesting. I know the local muggers all loved it.
I used to love that! When I worked in Kalamazoo, my bank was in Grand Rapids and the branch in Kalamazoo was for some reason in a different region, and they wouldn't let me deposit checks there. So getting paid in cash was perfect, and my dad could still deposit my tuition money into my checking account in GR. This was before there were ATMs everywhere-they existed, but were only at banks.
