@8iyx+15Frv7BD I worked the one in Big Bear Lake and they would say the same thing being the "best in the district." They are still those that think the store's never closing because there's nothing else in Big Bear. Well, that is true but guess what? If you got sh– worth to sell no one wants to be there! There's even a petition going on in Big Bear where the locals are signing something to the mayor, demanding that either Kmart restocks their shelves or kick them out and put in something else.
I’ll do one better for you. I was at the South Lake Tahoe Kmart a few weeks ago and they had lane #1 open and that’s it. The supervisor/manager on duty was covering the service desk and the cashier on lane #1 would call over the PA “customer service to the service desk” if anyone needed help. The cashier was also answering the store phone which was forwarded to the lane #1 phone that sat on the back counter behind the register. There were maybe 5 customers in the store. I heard someone ask when the store was closing and an associate said “never, we are the top store in our district.” I almost laughed out loud. Really? District? Isn’t there only 1 district, the whole chain at this point? I bought an “I heart South Lake Tahoe Kmart” reusable bag, the whole experience was surreal. If my Kmart looked or operated like this one we would have never heard the end of it from our manager. So sad to see how far this company has fallen. This is the first time I have stepped foot in a Kmart since my store closed in September of 2018.
No, this is most Kmarts at this point.
Is this one particular store? I work at Sears, and we have 2 floors. There is usually no cashier upstairs so there is no staff for softlines up there. I am guessing theft is happening left and right.
