Kmart #4201 was a Kmart discount department store located at Eastridge Plaza, 1120 McRae Boulevard in El Paso, Texas.[1] The store opened on August 3, 1967 as one of the first two Kmarts in El Paso, one of three stores to open that day for a total of 197 overall, and was tied for the 17th Kmart in Texas with Kmart 4205.[2] In 1991, the store would expand into the former Kmart Foods from a pre-1972 full-size model Kmart and be remodeled.[3] In 1999, the store would be converted to Big Kmart.[4] The store ultimately closed on March 26, 2017.[5][6]
