Kmart #4023 was a Kmart discount department store located at Kmart Plaza, 2747 Duniven Circle in Amarillo, Texas.[1] The store opened on November 23, 1962 as the first Kmart in Amarillo, one of two stores to open that day for a total of 17 Kmarts overall, and was tied with Kmart 4025 for the fifth Kmart in Texas.[2] In 1998, the store expanded into the former Kmart Foods from a pre-1972 full-size model Kmart and was remodeled to a Big Kmart, with a grand reopening ceremony in November.[3] The store ultimately closed on April 13, 2003,[4] and was demolished for The Home Depot 6831.[5]
