I have to admit that I had not walked into my local Kmart in a long time. The closest one to me is about a 30-45 min drive plus you have to fight traffic.
My family & I were happily greeted as we entered, and the store was clean. If we had any questions we were given a polite response at the where we could find what we were looking for and pointed in the right direction.
I wanted to get gardening supplies, since becoming pregnant and giving birth our garden has suffered ALOT! So needless to say ... my garden needed alot of TLC. Not only that but I am running behind on starting my veggie garden so I need to get that started as well.
Most of my mini roses have died and my gardenia plant looks as it is ready to head in the same direction along with a few of my other plants. So we purchased 2 cans of this in hopes to saves our plants.
Then it was off to find something to help start the veggie garden. (most of my plants are in 3 gallon pots and did really well the past few seasons, just have to remember to feed them is all.) So then I found this to help start the seeds growing. I have used this in the past it has always worked for us. I purchased 2 of these so I can plant all the seedlings at one time.
Then DH reminded me that it would be very helpful if we got a new hose for the garden. We have gone through 3 in the past year. We needed one for the back part of the yard since we already had one for the front yard. So we picked up 2 of these.
Then when we are ready to plant our seedlings we grabbed a few bags of potting soil.
They did have some lawn furniture, a few other gardening supplies & plenty of beach chairs. But other then that not a whole lot. (Maybe about 1.5 isles dedicated to lawn & gardening section.) I saw a free standing rock waterfall that I would have liked to purchase but was a little out of my price range, but it was nice to see that they had something like that there.
When we got to the check out the cashier rang us up without any mention of the "Shop your way" rewards program. I would have signed up for that if she would have said something about it. I am always on the look out for reward programs after all every little bit helps now a days. I only heard about the program after we had cashed out and were buying the kids a snack at Little Caesar's Pizza and we heard a bell ring and some clapping. We asked what that was for and heard that someone had earned something towards their purchase. Over all the people at Kmart were polite, helpful and full of the aloha spirit. Mahalo Cafemom for asking me to participate, I had a great time with my family and can't wait to spend more time with them in the garden.
