Last month, the Keys learned that the Kmart stores in Marathon and Key Largo will be closing. Immediately, locals began imagining (or wishing for) its successor. The Keys Weekly conducted its own poll for a definitive answer — not just in the “Big Box” category, but other national offerings such as fast food and grocery store chains. (This list takes into consideration that we are already well-served by Publix, Winn-Dixie, The Home Depot, Walgreens, CVS, etc.)

The results were very clear in every category except for dine-in restaurant options. About 350 residents took our quiz. See the results below. Also, ahem, Target … are you hearing us?
