If you have a K-mart near you, keep an eye out...

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I at least hope their top notch website stays in service...


I'm surprised K-Mart's still open at this point. From what I heard on one of the financial news channels, Macy's is the largest US retailer. Followed by Wal-Mart and Target. K-Mart wasn't even mentioned. Which is odd, considering Target owns a piece of K-Mart, currently. Well, technically, Target's parent company owns pieces of K-Mart.

Des-moines is about to get emptier again. Maybe they'll get replaced by something better. Not likely though.

Motto: "That's just prime..."
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Eh, I can't say I'm surprised. It's never really been somewhere I've ever shopped, it's always empty, and in all my memory, they've only had one Transformers before the other stores. (For the record, it was leader class movie Ironhide, and to this day, they're still the only ones that have him) Mines fairly clean and fairly courteous, though. I feel bad for the employees there, though. Maybe if it closes, we might finally get a Target or Toys'R'Us, so it might turn out good in the long run.

Because of that, I have the right to discuss what's in the topic., I can't help it was put in the wrong forum.

Editorializing, does not make it a TF news story.

How about them apples? Enough bold typeface for you?



Actually, I posted this in the TOY forum so collectors could know to keep an eye out for sales if they were looking for figures they otherwise passed up or couldn’t afford. It was then posted in the news feed so everyone who check out the news (not just the forums) could see by an Admin (or whatever the technical name for our green-named friends are).

So take the stick out of your butt and go find a political and/or economical forum (or topic) to throw your hissy fit in. Your constant whining isn't going to save anyone their jobs but a store closing might help people get things they couldn't or wouldn't before,which might include CLOTHES FOR THEIR CHILDREN or appliances they need to replace in their house. My posting this news happened to be in direct reference to TF toys because this is a TRANSFORMERS WEBSITE and this forums is about TRANSFORMERS TOYS

(you obviously didn't catch the point behind the bolding, so how about caps?)

They JUST opened a new Sears (the only one I know of in my area) in the past two months.

I'll go with one of my co-workers and agree that they're shutting down the less profitable ones to free up money for the usual new locations that hope to be in places that will allow them to make more money.



I work at a Target in the town (technically we're on the other side of the freeway, so it's called another town, but it's basically all merged together) of Walmart headquarters and can say we're doing just fine, LOL. (for whoever gave target a few years)

Like any big business, you've got good stores and bad stores though. Just depends on the location and the people working there. :/
