A nostalgic look back at chain stores and other everyday places from the past. Most former Big K's were numbered in the 's and a few the 's. Alas, the facade was altered during its stint as a warehouse supermarket. Big K's financial troubles were evident even to my young eyes inas the stores were caught in a time warp, for example, even though Disco was dead byyou would not know it buy their music department. Also, the interior was very similar to Wal-Mart circa bargain tables, pipe racks, color scheme and all.
I don't know any Big K that was ever updated beyond its opening appearance. Just remembered their jingle, which likely was the jingle for the chains entire lifespan-"Shop Big K, your King of Values. I live in a surburb of Nashville and I remember Big K. I loved it. I wish I could remember the discount hotel chain HoJo? Dave, Disco was dying by but it wasn't quite completely dead.
You still saw disco records available for sale in many places. They didn't completely vanish until ish. You also have to recall this is pre-MTV and largely pre-completely centralized control of product mixes. Amazingly, they seemed like they had been little touched in years, although one in West Nashville was in a perpetual state of remodeling. By late 80s standards, they were crowded, neglected stores with narrow aisles, but still did a very good business.
Kuhn's Big K Stores Plans Wal-Mart Tie
I remember its going out of business sale ish? The one in Decatur was in the Southland Plaza shopping center. When it closed I do not think a Walmart went in. I only passed through from time to time visting relatives. I think iot became a grocery store.
Ken - A lot of the Big K stores really weren't around long enough to justify remodels. Seems like their heaviest openings occurred during the period, less than ten years before they sold out. Thanks for the jingle lyrics. I'm always glad to learn those! I would be suprised if the Kroger Big K brand was sold anywhere else, but I know Kroger has contract-processed food for other retailers.
One example was the "Clover Valley" brand for Dollar General.
Anonymous 1 - Thanks. They obviously trusted their instincts. Flattery at its best. Lowe's and Home Depot have shadowed each other pretty well over the last decade, though I think that's slowed down a bit.
I agree on Disco. I grew up in Chicago, the home of the famous "Disco Demolition Night" at Comiskey Park inwhere the fans tore up the playing field between doubleheader games on summer night.
The White Sox had to forfeit the second game. I was all too happy when disco was finally dead in the early 80's, but now I have to admit that I like many of the songs! Bellevue wasn't really developed then, was it?
Anonymous 3 - Thanks! They culled out some of the locations early on. This Big K chain always fascinated me. I first heard of this store a few years ago on the Discount Stores of the 60s site where I think there is a photo.CourtListener is a project of Free Law Projecta federally-recognized c 3 non-profit.

Citations: S. Docket Number: Unknown. Author: Ray L. Brock Jr. In this action for damages for malicious prosecution the trial judge at the conclusion of all the evidence directed a verdict for the defendants. The plaintiff appealed to the Court of Appeals which reversed the judgment of the trial court and remanded for a new trial.
We granted discretionary review. The offense with which the plaintiff was charged by the defendants is defined in T. The trial judge cited the last quoted statute in directing a verdict for the defendants, finding that as a matter of law the plaintiff had concealed articles of the defendants' goods within the meaning of T. We agree with that disposition of the case by the Court of Appeals but granted review to consider questions raised by the opinion of the Court of Appeals.
In its opinion in this case the Court of Appeals expressed its disapproval of the opinion of this Court in Lewis v. Williams, Tenn. However, we continue to adhere to the views expressed by Mr. Justice Cooper, writing for the Court, in Lewis v. Williams, supra.

Thus, we reiterate:. Likewise, we reaffirm the following statements from the Lewis v. Williams opinion, to wit:. In conducting further proceedings in the instant case and in other malicious prosecution cases the courts of this state should apply the teachings of Lewis v.
It is our opinion that, viewing the evidence most favorably to the plaintiff, as we are required to do in determining a motion for directed verdict, it was error for the trial court to direct a verdict for defendants in this case. Thus, defendants assert that the plaintiff was heading for the exit when he was apprehended but the plaintiff's insistence is that he was still in the aisle shopping and had not gone toward the door nor was he anywhere close thereto when he was apprehended.
This constitutes an important dispute in the evidence bearing upon the question of the plaintiff's criminal intent and upon the issue of probable cause; it is an issue which should have been determined by the jury. Also pertinent to these issues was the fact that the sack into which the plaintiff placed his proposed purchases of deodorant and chewing gum had been supplied to him by the defendant's employee upon plaintiff's entry to the store. Moreover, it appears that the trial judge placed undue emphasis upon the fact that the plaintiff placed proposed purchases into the sack supplied to him by the defendant.
Thus, in explaining his directed verdict to the jury, the trial judge stated:. It must be remembered that the type of concealment which creates a presumption of criminal intent under the provisions of T.
We agree with the following observation of the Court of Appeals:.He was Kuhn was elected chairman of the Davidson County Democratic Executive Committee in for a two-year term.

They both managed, despite several closings, to co-exist in the retail landscape for more than 30 years, but most variety stores--even the larger ones--saw sales decline with each passing decade and eventually closed their doors.
When the last or so remaining Woolworth variety stores closed their doors forever inmany regarded it as the end of a significant era in retail history.
But for me, the saddest loss of all in terms of once-popular shopping destinations was that of the first-generation discount department stores which began springing up in selected areas as early as those 65, tosquare foot shrines to inexpensive merchandise for the masses with interior walls painted aqua, salmon and dull yellow, with huge, gaudy signs in the midst of the parking lot which often had a large, red arrow pointing straight at the store and rows of neon tubing or flashing light bulbs.
To earlier generations raised solely on shopping trips to the "five and ten" or the traditional stately department store, these sprawling monsters were either a boon to thrifty one-stop shopping, or a garish monument to stuff that was "cheap" in every sense of the word, sold by inexperienced high school grads.
But to MY generation, they were the stuff of baby boomer dreams. Shopper's World. Shopper's Fair. Atlantic Mills and Spartan, which later merged. Community Discount World. The Giant Store. French Market.
Two Guys. White Front. All doing good business. All thriving and surviving. All making for much-anticipated destinations during a weekend drive around the metro area, at a time when the big car was more or less king of the road, and it cost less than five bucks to fill the tank.
Equally inexpensive was much of the merchandise which could be had at the discount stores of that era. Men's slacks for about the same price--no overpriced designer duds at these places. While these stores might not have been one's first choice from which to buy a TV or hi-fi console the precursor to audio componentsthey attracted a lot of record buyers who grabbed all the latest hit LPs for two or three bucks a pop a dollar more for stereo --with much of that music making for a fitting soundtrack for this type of shopping spree, at that.
And then there were those toy departments--the Holy Grail for us '60s kids whenever our folks took us to stores of this type. My absolute favorite was the game section. Every year I looked forward to seeing what new titles would be added to the list, especially those brought out by the Ideal Toy Corporation, whose specialty was mostly "boardless" games with big plastic pieces, springs, marbles and steel balls, packed in boxes three to six inches deep.
Many were designed by Marvin Glass, the Willy Wonka of game inventors, who together with Ideal is credited with unleashing Mouse Trap on an unsuspecting public back in I also enjoyed seeing the newest editions of the "Concentration" home game. It was interesting to see what color scheme they'd use with the familiar graphics on the box cover each year.
These were relatively inexpensive as well, and a good thing too, for I wound up having to get no less than four different editions during the '60s due to that roll of 59 touted as 60 puzzles which I always found easy to memorize once I'd been through the roll. Yes, those were great times, visiting the toy departments at the old discount stores during those sunny, less-inflationary years, even if you had to wait for Christmas to get some of those things at least you could buy Plastigoop for your Mattel Thingmaker year-round.
But those times weren't always great. Back in those days before game boxes were plastic-wrapped, some stores' game aisles displayed the dreaded "Do Not Open Boxes! I had no intention of getting the things out and playing with them, but some kids did. Even more dreaded was the possibility that, sign or not, some mean old manager passing by would spot a lad peering into a box he'd opened and lower the boom on the poor kid--and yes, I had a couple of encounters like that growing up.
Still, an occasional setback such as this didn't affect my overall appreciation of the great old discount department stores. They were great places to spend a few bucks when a few bucks were all you had to spend. Sadly, marked the beginning of the end for most of them. Inflation was getting worse along with the nation's economic situation, the overall mood of America was growing less-optimistic, President Nixon and several of his associates had their troubles, and it seemed like each week brought news of yet another raw material that was suddenly in short supply.Offering exclusive content not available on RedTube.
