Kmart Gonzales La.

Here is the Kmart in Gonzales Louisiana. This is the closest Kmart to Baton Rouge and the only one left in the metro area. This is one of the smallest Kmart stores I have been to in years. This store is located at 115 South Airline Highway in Gonzales La.

A couple of pics of the electronics department.
This is one of the few Kmart stores that still has music CD's (not pictured, sorry).
