Roses Coming to the Old K-Mart

Regional retailer Roses has announced plans for a Covington store.

September 17, 2020

The business will be located off Turner Lake Road in the former K-Mart and will sell food, clothing, home furnishings and electronics.


“We are very excited to bring this type of development to the City of Covington, and hope to work with the city on other economic development projects” said property owner Bhushan Khanna.


The 37,000 square foot development will end a nearly two-year vacancy for the building, located off exit 90 on Interstate-20. Also occupying a portion of the space will be 547 climate-controlled storage units to be opened following Roses.


“We look forward to welcoming Roses and NexGen storage to Covington and filling a large vacancy at one of our city’s gateways,” said City of Covington Economic Development Manager William Smith. “Our next goal will be to work with Mr. Bhushan and see what additional development we can bring to the 10-acre parcel.”


With currently more than 20 Georgia locations, Roses was founded in 1915 in North Carolina and plans to open their Covington location by late November 2020.
