From nearly 2,500 stores globally, to only eight of them now, the retail giant has seen its fair share of hard times. As it stands, only three of those eight locations are based here in the United States.

At this current time, there are no remaining Kmart Stores in Michigan. The last Kmart Store that was in operation in Michigan was in Marshall, Michigan. It closed its doors for good back in 2021.

Kmart's History Here In Michigan

Kmart under its new name, not its original, got its start here in Michigan, believe it or not. Back in 1899 as the S. S. Kresge Corporation, which was renamed to Kmart Corporation in 1977.

Back in 1962, the Garden City Kmart would open its door, which was the first to use the "Kmart" name.

Kmart's Michigan Headquarters

From 1962 to 2005, the headquarters for the former retail giant were housed right here in Michigan. Troy, Michigan to be exact.

The former headquarters are currently owned by The Forbes Company, which owns the Somerset Collection, a mall down in Troy, Michigan. The Somerset is a thriving mall in Troy, that actually has two buildings, connected by a walkway over the road below.

No current plans stand for the old Kmart headquarters location.

The Current State Of The Former Headquarters

While, you should avoid entering the property, as it is currently owned, it hasn't stopped people from stepping inside and seeing the old Kmart headquarters.

With that though, we are very lucky to have seen the inside of the old location.

Take a look below of what remains of the old headquarters.

15 Defunct Six Flags Over Texas Rides That Have Been Removed But Not Forgotten

These rides once stood proud and brought joy and terror, in some cases, to those who rode them at Six Flags Over Texas. These rides no longer exist at Six Flags Over Texas. Yes, The New Texas Giant is there, but The Texas Giant went through a complete remodel and redesign and received an upgraded steel track and has a new configuration, and is no longer like the OG, The Texas Giant.
