Kmart Closing Sale (4500 N Rancho)

Kmart Closing Sale (Former Big K)
4500 North Rancho Dr 
Las Vegas, NV 89130

It was announced on January 5, 2018 that another 64 smarts & 39 Sears stores. It seems more that Sears Holdings are giving up and just going to keep closing stores till they close up their office. As of right now since the 2 Las Vegas Kmart stores are closing, leaving only one Last Kmart in the city of Las Vegas once this store and another closes.

I knew I had to go out and get pictures and do another blog. Thats what i did on February 11, 2018 as i made my way to where once i was getting my prescription for a long time. The Kmart is located in a busy side of north Las Vegas. Back in 2016 I made a blog stating how the store was always busy which to me I'm surprise Sears Holding decided to close this store, but at the same time, the center is completely dead except for a new Planet Fitness opening up. 

During my Visit the store was already doing a 10-40% off closing sale, lets take a look at some pictures, 

Upon walking in, they had a security guard
checking receipts.  Plus i was amazed with how
 many Cashiers they had, more on that later. 

Former Kmart Pharmacy, I actually felt bad for the
Pharmacy Manger. He was a really nice guy and went
out of his duties to help you. If he didn't
have the medicine you needed, He will see if another
Kmart store has it or he will put a order in and get it for you
the next day. 

Health & Beauty on Left and Bedding on Right 


Books anyone?

household & Pantry 

Cleaning Supplies

Former Electronic section 

This Kenmore display has been added
since the last time i was here. Note the paper towels,
odd place but maybe they were placed there for the closing sale.  

Electronic section 

The prices on there TV's were outrages, $1029
for a 55" inch smart tv. Heck Costco is cheaper.
Straight ahead, Former Seasonal now housing
more clothing

I didn't know this but these wiper blades are actually
the same ones Rain-x makes. 

On Left used to be mattresses and more appliances
but now house more clothing. It seems that
they had more clothing then anything else in the store.

Sporting Goods on Left 

A look down the middle of the store.

Blurry picture but heres more clothing
 which is in the actual place.

Thats all i have for photos, As I stated above about the checkouts, they had every lane open. The gentleman that checked me out was very kind and told me due to the closing sale, All sales are final, no exceptions. I told him i knew that but thanks for the heads up. I figure i would ask Barry if i can use his name in a blog and he told me it would be alright. I asked what will happen with all the employees once the store closes for good and he said he already is getting transferred to the Washington store which will be the last store in las Vegas everyone else, he wasn't quite sure about as a lot of the employees were hired to help with the liquidation sale.

That's it for now. Stay tuned and read my other blogs.

Glazier’s Food MarketPlace Closing Sale

Glazier’s Food MarketPlace Closing Sale 
8525 W Warm Springs Rd Las Vegas, NV  89113

Hello and welcome back. On this blog I am featuring a store in Las Vegas Nv, it’s not a grocery store like all the others, no it’s not a chain either. Glazier’s is was a one of a kind Grocery store in the Las Vegas area to only offer products from New York to Bailey's Irish Ice Cream. Glaziers even offer hot foods cooked to order just like Whole Foods market. The food bars included fresh sushi, salad bar, pizza, pasta, coffee drinks from Illy, sandwiches. I tried it all and everything was delicious. The one thing ill miss about glaziers was the apple fritters, more on that later.

Glaziers opened up in 2010 with being the #1 grocery store in the valley via Review Journal every year since opening day. But things started to fall in 2017 when i happened to move in the area. The produce, meat and food bars were looking really bad, like someone just didn't care anymore. I had heard that people started to return products that were expired. Now that we enter 2018, The sad news came on January 3 that the store was sold to Smiths (which is a Kroger owned company) and that all inventory was to be sold off before the end of the month. On Glaziers Facebook page:

"After 8 great years here in the Las Vegas valley, Glazier's food marketplace is closing its doors. Thank you to all our wonderful customers! We will be open for a few short weeks to sell off everything." 

People in the valley were heart broken that the store will be closing. Many were disappointed with smith's buying them when actually glaziers sold to smiths. Others were supporting Glaziers final days  just like me. I made my way down to Glaziers 2 weeks after it was announced to closed. The store was pretty much empty already. Not much other then your average grocery items found in normal stores nothing from New York to the ice cream i mention above was left. The store had all products 25% off. Lets take a look at these photos below:

whats left of the Bakery items in the middle and deli on right.

Empty Dairy Coolers

More Freezers


Thats it for now. Stay tune.

7501 W Washington, Las Vegas, NV 89128

On October 17, 2017, I was in the area and always wanted to check out this Kmart as i heard this one and the old Henderson Location (now closed) without the Super Concept were the nicest Kmart's in Las Vegas. I had lived in Las Vegas my whole life and never visited this kmart before, I was pretty excited to see what it was about. When i pulled up i was able to find a spot real close to the entrance. I quickly made my way into the store without snapping a picture from outside so i found one online via google. 

During my visit Kmart had a banner outside on the building stating they were doing a Cash back Bonanza (which is if you spend $30 in what ever department you get like $5-10 back in shop your way points). This strategy i feel like was something Sears is hoping will work to bring business in. To my surprise when i walked inside the store was actually quite busy with the parking lot being empty. Every employee I walked past came into contact with me asking if i needed any help (something you usually don't receive at any Kmart/Sears Location. 

Lets take a look at my photos, should we?
Upon walking in to the Right i could easily tell was a Former K Cafe which they converted into a Bigger Girls Clothing section. I still think that the equipment from the Former Cafe is behind that curved wall (anyone else think the same?)

Across the the former cafe is women clothing

Walking in to the Right is where the Cash registers are with 4 of them open (this photo didn't do a great job showing the lights on the registers).

Jewelry department

More Women Clothing next to Jewelry 

Something keeps telling me that this store just received a remodel (just look at the new directly signs)

Former Kmart Pharmacy (Now closed)

Label Scare from the Pharmacy 

Another look at the Pharmacy
Former Garden center now used for Seasonal 
Huge Seasonal section

 Thats all i have for photos, Not sure when they added Furniture but its a neat idea if it brings in business. This Kmart does have an auto center but its own by an independent mechanic and is not accessible via store. As i always say, If you would like to comment about this store, feel free (i might use your comment to update this information on this store). Hoped you enjoy

Until next time,
Retail Closing
