Atlanta 1993: Kmart on Clairmont Road

This Kmart was on Clairmont Road just north of I-85, now the site of Sam's Club. It was built in 1967 and 26 years later it still looked and felt just like 1967, which is probably why I loved going there and probably one of the reasons it closed. They were definitely behind the times.


This K-Mart was much farther back from the road than the current Sam's Club and today this spot in the parking is almost exactly where Sam's front door is.
