Here we are at the Mandeville Louisiana Kmart. This store is located a few moments away from the Causeway bridge which takes you to the South shore of the Greater New Orleans area. This is a 1970's early 80's style Kmart similar to most Kmart stores remaining in Louisiana. This is the cleanest and most organized Kmart store I have been to in a long time. The store had decent customer traffic for a weekend afternoon.
The overhead advertisement is a newer feature to Kmart stores.
Looking from the pharmacy to the front checkouts
A nicely stocked appliance and mattress section
Looking towards the garden shop
Inside of the garden shop, these were taken towards the end of Summer
From the garden shop entrance to the middle of the store
The back aisles of the store near automotive and sporting goods
Even without an on-site auto center you can still find batteries at Kmart.
Middle of the store aisle
Music and movies, the product selection has been declining at many stores. Here they still have a decent selection.
A Kmart advertisement on the TV's and a peeling blue cover up with part of an old electronics photo partially visible.
This aisle will more than likely be consolidated soon. 4 cameras being advertised for sale with over 10 lease signs surrounding the price tags for the cameras.
A wide view of the remaining electronics department
Home and kitchen in the middle of the store
More furniture and clothes
Near the front checkouts in the middle of the store
Signs at the customer service counter
This is the first store I have covered with alcohol for sale. I wonder if the Super Kmart stores in Louisiana had alcohol.
Now for the clothing departments
Greeting card section
More clothes near the front checkouts
Groceries, beer, and wine. If you want the strong stuff you have to go to the customer service counter.
Back to the pharmacy for a better view of the area
Tools with the new shelf signage, a good way to cover up the shrinking shelf space as many items have been phased out of the stores. The far away wall has part of the electronics sign covered up since the electronics department was consolidated.
More sporting goods
Another shot of the electronics area with one of the newer displays to be found at a Kmart.
Layaway, not much happening on this day
The customer service desk
An up-close shot of a random price scanner
Another view of the mattress and appliance department
The famous old school blood pressure monitor
Now for the outside of the store, which is hard to see because of several trees. This section of the building is being used as a baseball academy. This was probably the former auto shop, a video of the inside is located at this link.
