Here is another Kmart closing sale in Louisiana. This was the last Kmart store in North Louisiana located in Bossier City. The closing of this store was announced two weeks after multiple Kmart and Sears locations began closing sales including the Pineville store covered here. This store is nearly identical to the Longview Kmart which closed earlier this year as well. I visited this store right after the closing announcement was made so the store was still mostly stocked. The Kmart is right across the street from the Sears at Pierre Bossier Mall. The closing of this Kmart is a surprise because this store was busy every time I went.
Lots of clothes still left.
Back aisle of the store with sporting goods.
I guess loitering was a problem at this store. I guess this area may have once been the electronics department.
More sporting goods.
Back corner of the store.
Garden Shop and seasonal departments.
In the Garden Shop
More seasonal items.
Groceries and refreshments.
Options for large purchases.
Phone displays in the electronics department.
Most of the good movies were already gone. They were probably sent to other nearby Kmart stores.
CD selection had been picked through as well.
Some of the electronics shelving had already been removed.
The middle main aisle of the store.
I wonder where this machine is today, the machine was in pristine condition for how old it is.
The pharmacy was already closed, but this advertisement was still up.
No more blue light specials, but the store closing ad was on the blue light spot.

A store checkout lane.
Yet another old sign from a different era when people still thought it was okay to smoke in stores.
