Big Lots took over the former Kmart food store in the late 90's and following the closure of Kmart in 2017 - due to strong sales and a loyal following in the area - Big Lots expanded and relocated into half of the Kmart space, with an expanded product offering and their new "Store of the Future" format! Grocery Outlet plans to open March 2019, offering the community reasonably-priced, daily-needs staples.
