Quite possibly the worst retail chain in the industry today.
Located in the shopping mall area just off of Rio San Diego Drive and Qualcomm is the newly renovated Kmart which took over the building previously owned by Sears Essentials.
Pros: Lots of empty parking spaces to choose from, right next to some local food chain restaurants like Sombrero's, Pat & Oscars, Jersey Mikes and Daphnes Greek Cuisine.
Cons: Worst customer service, no carry out for large items, no delivery for large appliances or mattress or anything for that matter, employees are walking around like stoned out zombies, managers standing around barking orders, sale items aren't really that much of a sale, big huge building with a lot of wasted space inside, garden associates don't know anything about gardens, and just an all around depressing unmotivating unethical shopping experience I had last week and I've heard the same from my friends who have shopped there since the "Grand Opening" a month ago. Please do yourself a huge favor and don't waste your time going to this Kmart location or any Kmart for that matter, why are they still in business?!
