As a high-school student, I was a third-generation K-Mart employee; my mother and stepsister had both worked there before me. And it was a pleasant enough place, just not something I wanted to make a career out of. At this particular K-Mart, however, there are MANY employees who have been there for 20+ years, making the staff exceptionally knowledgeable about the store layout and items.

This location is always clean and tidy - the only time I've ever seen a real mess is on the days that are excusable anyway, such as just after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Seasonal items are always conveniently displayed together, and it's quite easy to find what you're looking for in any department. The prices are generally very good, especially with frequent sales. And I'm happy to point my pregnant friends in their direction as this was the ONLY store in my area where I was able to find maternity clothes to fit my plus-size frame.

Be forewarned, however - should you purchase clothing at K-Mart (well, or anything, really) either make SURE that it fits/is what you're looking for before leaving the store, or hang onto that receipt for dear life. Having recently purchased a dress on a Monday afternoon (and not being able to try it on in-store with a fussy toddler), I took it home to find that it didn't fit. The receipt, which I was sure to leave in the bag, went MIA somehow before I attempted to return the dress on Wednesday morning - and the cashier on duty informed me that, without the receipt, she could only refund the last sale price on the dress, a full $10 less than I'd paid for it. Grrrr. Buyer, buy - but hang onto that receipt.

PROS: Knowledgeable, friendly staff; good prices; clean, well laid out store.
CONS: Somewhat crappy return policy.
