Spotlight: Kmart - Las Vegas, NV

Located at 7501 W. Washington Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89128.
Today we are spotlighting a Kmart in fabulous Las Vegas! It opened on May 7, 2000 and is 101,107 square feet.This store has a unique building style which is more than likely used to blend in with the other Las Vegas architecture. It is not located in a shopping center but in a building by itself. It is located in a busy and dense area with a Lowe's across the street (see picture below.) This Kmart is brightly lit, well maintained, and fairly modern by Kmart's standards. Unfortunately like most Kmart's, the store was pretty dead in the middle of the day with hardly any customers inside shopping.

Located in a busy area of Las Vegas.

This Kmart has been updated with the newest red sign package and the current Kmart logo on the outside of the store. This store has 10 belt driven registers and no wall going into the indoor portion of the garden center. Because of those things it is possible that this store could have been a potential store within a store Super Kmart conversion. Some features of this store include a former Penske Auto Center that is now run by a local automotive shop called AA Auto Care Center. It has a former Olan Mills portrait studio at the front of the store along with a slot machine gambling area next to it. There's used to be a K Cafe at the front of the store. This store features a large Garden Center area but strangely the Garden Center entrance doors were chained shut and the doors to the outdoor garden shop area were chained shut too. The electronics department no longer has a counter area and instead has large appliances in it's place.
