LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The shelves are bare at Lexington's first Walmart. The store in Lake Mist Plaza first opened in 1993. It's closing for good Friday.
Some people do consider it their neighborhood store.
"I've been going to this Walmart here since '96, and I've been going to the last couple sales that they've been having - the 75% off sales, the 50% off sales, and as of right now, it's 75% off in the store with nothing left at all. I'm sad to see this store going because I've been coming here for so long, for over 20 years, and it's sad to see our neighborhood Walmart leaving this location here," noted customer Chris Wallace.
The store officially closes at 7 p.m. Friday.
