Fall Rivers, MA Big Kmart

New Harbour Mall Big Kmart 372 William S Canning Boulevard, Fall River, MA 02721

After reading a good Labelscar blog post on it, we had to share. Why? This is (supposedly) the only shopping center in the country with both a Wal-Mart and a Kmart sharing the same building! See our Mesa, AZ post about a Target and a Kmart in the same plaza (though separate buildings), and a Big Kmart and a Wal-Mart Supercenter sharing the same parking lot (literally feets from each other) in Gilette, WY. But supposedly this is the only example of Wal-Mart and Kmart in the same building... very surprised the Kmart still exists. The mall opened in 1970 with two anchors; Kmart opened in 1976 replacing Grant City, while Walmart opened around 2002, replacing the defunct mall anchor Bradlees.

From the mall management website, note the Wal-Mart on the left and Kmart on the right.


There are more cars on the Wal-Mart side.

  1. I guess Wal-mart is doing something right. Anyway have you ever been to this K-Mart? The place is a dump. WHy they chose to leave this store open is beyond me. The building should be leveled, and the parking lot reclaimed. The people of this city use the K-mart parking lot as their own personal dumpster.

  2. I agree with the above post, this KMart is pretty bad. While this may be the only mall w/a Walmart and KMart that's pretty much all that's in the New Harbor Mall except for like 4 stores and a recruiting center.

  3. the parking lot of this market is an incredible waste of space, they must reduce it for the sake of our community.
