I stumbled across this photo of a Kmart with adjoining â€œKmart Foodâ€ while browsing through cash register photos the other day. The Kmart side looks exactly like the Kmart we would go to in Mattydale Plaza outside of Syracuse but I donâ€™t remember ever seeing a Kmart Food. However, in the late 1970s there was a grocery store next to the Kmart in Mattydale, so Iâ€™m wondering if it originally was a Kmart Food.
I know the Kmart in Mattydale burned in the early 1970s and was rebuilt. Perhaps the Kmart Food was removed at that time.
I still think Kmart was best when they stuck with the big, red K and the turquoise â€˜martâ€™.
