Kmart advertisement, 1976

Posted on November 12, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

This full-page advertisement was in the May 23, 1976, Sunday Herald-Leader for Lexington’s two Kmart department stores. The ad details items available during a “Big $.14 Sale” that included a box of crayons, Cracker Jack, matches and other merchandise. A 12-digit calculator cost $49.96 — but the AC adapter cost extra. Click on the image for a closer look. At that time, Lexington had a Kmart store at 130 New Circle Road, which is now a Goodwill store, and at 2520 Nicholasville Road. That store, the last in Lexington, closed in October, and it was announced recently that it will become a Malibu Jack’s “family fun center.”
