List of places

Barg'N-Mart is one of the main supermarkets in Bikini Bottom. The supermarket appears in "Help Wanted," "Squirrel Jokes," "Night Light," "Slide Whistle Stooges," "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler," "The Sponge Who Could Fly," "Chocolate With Nuts," "Waiting," "Goo Goo Gas," and "Karate Star."Their most famous product is Kelpo cereals, but also have products that "meets your spatula needs," as stated by SpongeBob. This store is the common marketplace for all Bikini Bottomites, similar to a Walmart, Target, Kmart (or a Zellers in Canada) in the ocean. The store functions much like a usual bargain store.

Products shown include their wall of Kelpo, their paper towels; commonly used with the slogans in town or around (as mentioned in "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler"), deodorant, baby powder, and other items, such as soup and night lights. This store is currently the only major store in Bikini Bottom, which leads to the questions of where the furniture and other home items are purchased. In "Employee of the Month game", it is shown to sell cooking oil, Jellyfish Jelly, Kelpo, TVs and Food-in-a-can.

List of destructions

  • "Dying for Pie:" Barg'N-Mart was most likely destroyed in the massive pie explosion like the rest of Bikini Bottom.
  • "The Krusty Plate:" After SpongeBob uses a maximum power, it probably got destroyed after the atomic bomb.
  • "Karate Star:" Patrick destroyed the Barg'N-Mart by his uncontrolled karate hand.
  • "Whelk Attack:" It was obviously destroyed when the mama whelk was vacuuming in or swallowing every thing and the whole of bikini bottom.
  • "The Krabby Patty That Ate Bikini Bottom:" Probably got destroyed when the Krabby Patty was eating everything.
  • "SpongeHenge:" Abandoned/destroyed from age/unknown causes. It does not show in this episode, but it is very likely that it did happen, as even the Krusty Krab is abandoned/destroyed.
  • The Barg'N-Mart appears in "Employee of the Month" (Video Game).

Trivia

  • Barg-'N-Mart is a parody of Walmart.
  • Besides the Krusty Krab, Barg'N-Mart was the only establishment to be shown in the first 5 episodes.
  • The name is similar to the Kwik-E-Mart from The Simpsons.
  • Barg N' Mart was originally for groceries in the early series, but later it became more of a convenience store. 
  • When SpongeBob is walking to it in "Help Wanted," he can be heard singing "The Barg'N-Mart: Meeting all your spatula needs." This may mean the store has a jingle, with "spatula needs" being replaced by "special needs."
