 having a that concession like place right when you walked in that you could get popcorn and Icees from?  My Oma used to take me in the 80's and we always got those treats. It's almost like it was stale popcorn but it was oh so good, lol!!! 

Also does anyone remember back in the 80's when they had a cafeteria in the back??? I can't remember what it was called or what all they served but for some reason I remember loving their cafeteria mashed potatoes and gravy. 

Update 1/14: I did just a little bit of googling just now.  Is it possible the cafeteria I'm remembering was called K'Cafe before being replaced with Little Caesar's?  Anyone remember?

They were around was long before the 80s....and the Kmart here actually had the concessions place up until about 3 years ago (2010) so even my children remember it.

 I was born in 1975, lol.  The Kmart was like just 1/2 a mile up the road from where she lived so it was convenient plus I don't remember Walmart back then but maybe that's because Kmart was closer so she went there.
