I can close my eyes and be back in time in your store in my hometown. I was always excited at what I might find! Thank you for the memories!

I worked for you in 1950 and learned a lot by taking the Pellman course and the S.H.Kress courses offered by your company.

When I was a kid I used to beg my mom to take me to Kresses...it was so much fun and I could pick out anything I wanted and could afford it! Thank you for the great memories.

RIP..from a Native Nanticokian, where your first store opened. I remember my grandparents telling me what a great store it was.

Mr. Kress,

Your beloved K-Mart has fallen on hard times. But fear not, the Phoenix will rise from the ruins, and fly once again!

Rest peacefully!
