I have preferred K-Mart over Wal-Mart for years. There is a Wal-Mart within walking distance of my home, yet I will drive 18 miles (one-way) to a K-Mart. When I moved, it was an opportunity to start anew in a better place, so I bought matching everything for two bathrooms - initially at Wal-Mart. Within days, I knew the towels, rugs, curtains and shower accessories were of terrible quality. I returned everything & drove to K-Mart. Much, much better. Although I seriously doubt that either Jaclyn Smith or Martha Stewart oversee the line of products sold under their names at these stores - but I can emphatically state, from first hand experience, that Ms Smith is kicking Ms Stewart's heinie. Today I read that yet more K-Mart & Sears stores are closing. Sigh. Was hoping they would make a comeback instead.
