Two posts in one day! Be sure to check out my La Palmera post from earlier today here.
Portland Texas, just outside of Corpus Christi had one of the last Kmart stores in Texas. As of this posting, McAllen has the last remaining Kmart left in the State of Texas. The Portland store was 82,939 square feet and closed in April 2018.
Here are photos from my visit in January 2019. The store looked like it had closed many years ago, but it was less than a year at this point. It really shows that this building was not taken care of when the paint is this faded.
The rest of the shopping center was lively, but the empty Kmart building really stuck out. An Aaron's store is just next door to this building, but tucked back a little bit so it makes this place look really dark.
I had to walk around once I pulled up on this building. I found one spot to peek into the store.
