The building that housed Kmart for decades could now house an auto parts store and warehouse after the sale of the building was completed over the holidays.
The 105,664-square-feet building at 1625 W. Redlands Blvd. was bought by Autofit, an Arizona-based auto parts company with stores and warehouses in Phoenix, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, said Redlands spokesman Carl Baker.
Plans for the Redlands location built in 1976 were not immediately revealed.
According to its website, Auto Fit, Inc., just moved its Houston location to a 110,000-square-feet state-of-the-art facility to maintain its position as the industry “leader.”
Baker did not have information on another empty building in the city, which until late October housed La-Z-Boy for 53 years. The building at 301 Tennessee St. remains empty after La-Z-Boy moved operations out of state, leaving 350 people without work.
