This is a video of a building that is now sadly gone, but it was lit with lots of MV lights. Some parts had MV wall lights, others had both wall lights and recessed cans. At 8:22, you can hear a very loud MV ballast, and it appears that some are greened out but others are new. It's too bad that it was demolished, since probably not a single light was saved. Sad

That KMart was like the one in Greenville,NC.It is supposed to be a Publix food store in the future.Remember Pinellas County,Fla-grew up there in the 60's.When you think of it KMart was the "WalMart" of the 60's!

i doubt it. They usually consider these things part of the building debris and have no intention of saving them. Maybe I am wrong, though. A few times I have seen lights get saved from demolition and reused...

Sure hope the neon lights were saved-but alas probably weren't.Sad.Looks like that was a nice mall when it was new.
