    Those are my thoughts exactly.

    KMart's are old, dirty and run-down. Most closed in my area. Only does well where no WalMart near. (Like inner city Chicago, etc).

    Some Sears nice and new but very poorly run.

    Products aren't even that great anymore.

    - WalMart/Target will continue to gain marketshare for daily supplies
    >>> As well as tools (Black & Decker and Stanley for less than half the price as Craftsman)
    - BestBuy for appliances, TV's, electronics
    - AutoZone/O'Reilly's for auto-batteries
    - Goodyear/Firestone for service (or local guy)
    - Kohl's/JC Penney's for clothes
    - Home Depot/Lowe's for lawn and garden
    - J.Crew over Land's End now that Aunt Esther endorsed them.

    Long-term, it's my belief they can't compete.
