A typical King's store ranged from 10,000 square feet (930 m2) to 20,000 square feet (1,900 m2) and carried a wide variety of value priced merchandise. Most King's stores were located in smaller towns that only had a grocery store as its major retail store.

In February 2017, King's announced it would close all of its stores, and ceased operations that May.[3]
