Once again time for a KMart Collector Day! It's next Saturday, 2/17 and if you're a collector that likes variants or exclusives, you'll want to check it out. Or if you're never been, it's certainly worth a trip to see how your local KMart handles things.

In short, KMart stores get a bunch of exclusive variants and first-to-market cars. I've read stories of KMarts going all out with a ton of stuff, while others (like mine) seem to do the bare minimum. But if you're up early on Saturdays, then you can get in early for raffles and get first crack at cases of cars.

Our friends over at Orange Track Diecast have the details and lead on some of cars you can expect to find on Saturday.

I went to my first KMart Day back in 2009 and my account of the day is up in the old RLD archives, if you care to get my first time thoughts. Otherwise, you can watch my own KMart Day Unboxing video and discussion from last year to get an idea.

After reading this post over at Lamley, I'm wondering how many of you have a KMart within reasonable driving distance? 

I have one in my town but I think it's one of only a handful in all of Ohio. I know KMarts are an endangered species, so just wondering. Has me thinking that if the article is correct in suggesting most people are doing KMart day via online purchases, that means there is more opportunity at in-store locations since most people won't even bother going (or just have none to go to).

Anyway...if you end up going, please share a photo or two of what you experience and what you find. If time permits, I might swing by my KMart and pick through the wreckage.

All shuttered up in these parts.

I'm going to head over tomorrow and see if they have anything good.

I'll be working as usual.  Good luck to those of you who do go.
