Kmart #4258 was a Kmart discount department store located at 1520 Wooster Avenue in Akron, Ohio. The store opened April 17, 1969 and closed April 26, 1986.


Kmart decided to convert this location to Builders Square after they did a market study that determined a home improvement store was better suited there.

Builders Square closed all their Northeast Ohio locations in 1999.

Tops Markets opened in a portion of the building on August 30th 2000 and also built a gas station outparcel.

Due to declining sales Tops closed the location in 2004.

It has remained vacant ever since.
