Big box stores like Target and Walmart erect one-story buildings that are bigger than 20 thousand square feet all over the United States, and some of them close down leaving behind large abandoned buildings. Now institutions like libraries, churches and museums are taking advantage of the big empty stores to create new and interesting repurposed buildings.
Big box stores like Walmart and Target erect one-story buildings that are bigger than 20 thousand square feet all over the United States, and some of them go out of business leaving behind large abandoned buildings.
Now institutions like libraries, churches and museums are taking advantage of the big empty stores to create new and interesting repurposed buildings.
Julia Christensen, author of a book and website about repurposing big box stores found a museum dedicated to Spam in Minnesota that used to be a Kmart store, along with a former Winn-Dixie that was changed into a Calvary Chapel in Florida, and a Walmart that was changed into a speedway.
One estimate says that about 11 percent of big box stores are currently abandoned, compared with just 7 percent in 2008.
The combined area of all those stores makes approximately 300 million square feet of unused space.
A few companies have closed the doors to all of their stores including Circuit City, and CompUSA.
Many other companies like Best Buy, Sears, and Toys “R” Us are shutting down hundreds of store locations collectively.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.
