Sears in my hometown has finally bitten the big one. Kmart still hanging on . . . . for now.

kmart in the next town over
We have the empty husk of the first SuperK in the nation here in my small city in NEOH. The anchor design of the surrounding shopping center is dying due to the giant 300,000 sqft blackhole at it's center.

We are actively trying to encourage a major grayfield redevelopment of the site and center into something completely different - such as BelMar Mall in Lakewood, CO. It already has a street grid backbone (though private) built in and connected to the greater public street network.
