Since they bought out Sears, Kmart has been improving. The store near me has increased aisle space and have remodeled somewhat by painting and re-organizing their layout. You can also find a lot of unadvertised specials that usually occur on the weekends. Their grocery ads are pretty good and compete with the other large grocery stores in my area. One negative is the inconsistency in staff attitude. The grocery and cashiers seemed ticked off while people in the clothing and the hardlines areas are in pretty good moods. Go for the weekends deals.
