Some residents on the north side of Binghamton are worried they’re losing one of the few places they had to buy groceries, now that the Kmart is closing.
There hasn’t been a grocery store on the north side in 20 years. Many residents find a way to shop at the Weis a mile and a half away on the east side of town.
Otherwise, they buy groceries at gas stations or the Family Dollar. The Kmart has also functioned as a sort of stand-in.
