Kmart store #3420 (New Boston, OH)

Kmart store #3420 (New Boston, OH)
A well-preserved (aside from the change to the stupid "Big K" sign, that is) Kmart store in New Boston, Ohio; just outside Portsmouth.

Older Kmart stores (when they haven't been converted to Spam museums, that is) often have very uniform prototypes: This style of store is typical of new constructions from (I believe) 1975 to the early '80s. Compare to the style of their early '70s stores, as well as the '60s stores that marked the initial rounds of national penetration. There are also oddball Kmarts that were converted Grant City stores, or conversions from other short-lived discount retailers.

Or, don't ask; I was just idling at a red light...
