Kmart #3327 was a Kmart discount department store located at 2051 18 Mile Road in Sterling Heights, Michigan. The store opened April 8, 1976 and closed unknown. "The preparation of the K mart on 18 Mile and Dequindre in Sterling Heights, Michigan, is a typical example of [the company's control of pre-opening costs being an important profit opportunity]. Newly appointed store manager Oakley S. Lutes, a 15-year employee [started 1961], and his district manager Raymond F. Pariseau, a 37-year veteran [started 1939], reported to the Sterling Heights store on February 12, 1976. Their plan: strict adherence to scheduling and cost control in line with a targeted store opening date. With the assistance of Kresge specialists and trainees, Mr. Lutes and Mr. Pariseau opened their store on April 8, 1976, just 56 days later. Effective January 27, 1977, Mr. Lutes was promoted to district manager." - Kmart Corp. annual report, 1976[1]
