When K-mart sold sub's

I am looking for the recipe and or combination they used. I think they used a deli water ham, thinly sliced onion and maybe some shredded lettuce. They just tasted so different. Any other ideas.

    The ones I remember from Kresge's, then K-Mart had the ham and bologna and american cheese. I remember a miracle whip type dressing with yellow mustard on a soft bun. You could get round ones for $.39, a long hoagie type one for $.49.

    My mother worked for the cafeteria that K-mart had and would always bring home those ham sandwiches, a strawberry pie, or they had warm apple dumplings I used to like.

    And of course a cherry slurpee to wash it all down.

    I almost forgot the Kmart had cafeterias. I mostly remember the food kisoks in the center of the store.

    The Kresge subs ... 49 cents in 1968 ... I once had eight of them. They were great although now most people wouldn't agree. Wrapped in plastic in a big bin ...

    Here in West Michigan at the Local K-Marts they had a basic sub ($.39ea or 3 for a buck) that cosisted of sesame seed bun, 2 1/2 slices of bologna and one 1/2 slice of salami. 2 strips of American cheese 2 paper thin slices of onion and green peppers. I distinctly remember the green pepper because I always took it off and gave it to my GF. A bag of 3 and a couple of Cokes (still in glass bottles back then) and life was good in 1970.

    The also used to sell these when they operated Kresgees in downtown Grand Rapids and had them there when we road the bus downtown to hit a double feature at the Savoy Theater around the corner.

    Oh Yes,
    I forgot to mention that they also included some shredded lettuce and later on they dropped the green pepper slices and substituted a couple of dill pickle chips. Most everyone added a little packet of mustard to comple the sandwich.

    After thes subs sat a day or two in the refrigerated glass case the flavors all blended into a unique flavor that is sure to bring memories of the 60's 70's

    I remember

    They used that faked baked ham with the Jelly coating on it. I remember it well, my mom used to buy it by the pound and I remember peeling off the jelly (I don't really know what the coating was, I hate to even think about) before I ate it.

    anyone remember going to Woolworths for a counter lunch? I can't seem to remember the main menu, but i do recall the balloons you popped and inside was the price you paid for a banana split. My mom and I (i was 5-6yrs old) would walk to the post office north side of chicago and stop in for a treat.truly a retro experience.

    The K-Mart by my house in Denver (84th & Huron-ish, IIRC) when I was growing up had the best deli ham in town. Always a treat when Mom brought that home. The wife and I were talking about it the other day, she said the K-mart over by her Grandma's house (over by Lakeside) had it as well and that was her dad's favorite too.

    I remember them fondly as well.
    Me and my 5 brothers,sisters and parents could eat an entire bag of them. With real Frozen Cokes. And you are right I remember the huge squares of ham with gelatin. Didnt they call it chopped ham?...Russ

    The glaze was a sweet gelatin and I loved it. My Mom would buy it by the lb too, It was the first sweet ham I ever had. In those days it was pullmans in the meat counter. The sandwiches mustar, thin onion and pickle made the deal/
    At the end of the day, the blue light special wuld do the ham on a bun at 6 for a buck and subs 3 for a buc

    I think our K-Mart might still have them --- they have a dining area. They also have a pretty good hot dog and fries.

    I remember the sandwhiches. We used to shopping at K-marts after chuch as a little gril. Then go sit in the car and have a K-Mart sub with a shared bottle of pepsi.

    Mom used to work for k-mart and she made subs. She was also the one who was responsible for how you saw the subs displayed in the case.

    Our Kmart has a fast food stand. I remember when they all had sit down diners with booths and a counter complete with a full menu9wed was all you could eat chicken. Awesome as there were no buffets back in the early 60's Denver area). It reminded me of the old woolworts diner.
    Now its dogs, nachos and slurpee's

    I don't recall the subs per se, but I sure do miss the lunch counters at Kresge, Woolworth, and McCrory's.

    Did G.C. Murphy and Kress Stores have lunch counters?

    Baltimore had a G.C. Murphy at the Eastpoint Mall. I'm pretty sure they had a lunch counter.
