Hello everyone, welcome to the Retail World Patreon page! I'm Paul and I am the creator of Kmart World and more recently Retail Worlds websites, Facebook pages, and now YouTube channel. First, a little history on how the sites came to be. I've always had interest in retail including the architectural elements of the buildings. I started to take pictures of mainly Kmart stores around 2007-2008 to document them as they started to close. I decided in 2009 to create a blogger website called World of Kmart for me to start featuring pictures of Kmart stores I photographed. Soon after I changed the name to just Kmart World and purchased the domain. The site proved popular with fellow Kmart, Sears, and retail lovers. Over the years I updated the site on an on and off again schedule time permitting. As time passed I've acquired more domain names for my site and I started a Facebook page. In 2016, I created Retail World to feature all of the non-Kmart and Sears stores and malls that I had photographed. It started as a Facebook only page, but in early 2018 I created the Retail World website to feature more in-depth posts. Now Retail World focusing on creating YouTube videos of dead malls and retail. I would love to be able to travel more to feature stores and malls outside of my typical travel range. Traveling to document these places is not free as it takes up a lot of my time and gas money. Please consider becoming a Patron help keep Retail World and Kmart World going and for me to bring you even more new content than ever!

As soon as I hit 50 Patrons, I am going to go on an exclusive road trip and documents as many places as I can. Patrons will have access to the pics and or video as soon as I return from the trip. The content won't go out to the public for a month after the Patron subscribers see it.
