History of Justin Vickers



History of Justin Vickers


It all starts when I was real younger, Age 2 (In 2006). I've been interested in stores and how they change since I can remember, I always told my grandma what stores were and what changed constantly. Since I first grew up on the East Side. I loved going to Harborcreek. It was just my favorite thing to do, I always went to the Walmart Supercenter and Kmart down there. Mostly the Video USA and Giant Eagle. Video USA was my favorite video rental store. It was by the Giant Eagle (Which became Price Rite) and I went there all the time with my dad. I also loved going to the Iggle Video inside that Giant Eagle. The Kmart on Buffalo Road I always ate at there KCafe they used to have. Let me tell you, there food was amazing! And at the Walmart, I loved going to there Family Fun Center Arcade back then. When I moved up to Millcreek in 2008, I already knew the area since I been up there before. I always went to the Millcreek Mall and ate at the McDonald's and played at the Play Place they had. I miss there KB Toys and Borders Express place. That's another thing I miss is Borders Books. In December 2009, I got a toy camera for christmas, I loved it and took photos of everything! In Summer of 2010 I went to the Eastway Plaza in Harborcreek (Now Giant Eagle Plaza) and snapped some photos of them too. This would be the first time I ever took photos of retail. That same day I went to the Kmart and took photos of that too and the Big Lots on the left of it. I took photos of that KCafe too and Video USA and Giant Eagle. Don't forget Walmart.
I can't find those photos but they are on a disc somewhere. If I find them, I will post them. So pretty much I have been taking photos of stores since 2010 and I got back into doing them when I got a iPod Touch in 2012. That's when the brand new Giant Eagle opened on Buffalo Road, they had a band playing for there Grand Opening and I remember making a video of them on my iPod Touch in 2012. So I have been taking photos for a long time and now I am doing it a lot more. I hope I still do this for a very long time...

Buffalo Road Kmart (July 2016)

Now we take a visit to one of my favorites Kmarts in Erie, PA and the 2nd one i went to a lot when i was younger, which I mostly spend my time in the K-Cafe on West 26th Street Kmart, This one however i was not in the Cafe a lot but more just shopping around.


Here it is! Now this Kmart opened in 1969 a long with Kmart Foods which is now a Big Lots,
which I will show you in a little bit.

The Former K-Cafe which closed in either 2008 or 2009.
You can kinda see the Little Caesars Lablescar.
Now here is some pictures for the interror of the Former K-Cafe.

Big Lots
Former: Kmart Foods


Is this store danger of closing?: Possibly since a lot of Kmarts have been closing so, maybe.

Rating: 8 out of 10. My only recommendation is do some fixing on the ceiling or paint it a little because there are a couple brown stuff from rain.

Klosing Kmart

Well, It's sadly the time to view the soon to be Former Grandview Blvd Kmart in Erie, PA.

Fun Facts: This was never Kmart when it was first opened, it was actually Grant City but i'm not to sure when Grant City closed and when Kmart actually took it here.

The Former PENSKE Auto Service Entrance which they closed in 1994 due to scamming people.
Music & Video
Layaway, which of cource, they don't do Layaway anymore.
Starting to get empty already a little bit.
Storage.
Now we say our last goodbyes to this Kmart, sad how they will close around the end of March.
Well what they become in the future, I hope I can take pictures of its new buisness again...
