Kmart #4205 was a Kmart discount department store located at Kmart Plaza, 9484 Dyer Street 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 Kmarts overall, and was tied for the 17th Kmart in Texas with Kmart 4201.[2] Between 1989 and 1995, the store would expand into the former Kmart Foods from a pre-1972 full-size model Kmart. In 1999, the store would be converted to Big Kmart.[3] The store ultimately closed on March 19, 2017.[4][5]
