About a month remains before the Sears Haliburton store will be closed entirely.
Adrian Vargas, who runs the store with his wife Wendy, said since the liquidation sale began on Oct. 19, they’ve been inundated by shoppers. They’ve also been overwhelmed by well-wishing customers, who came in to support them.
“Some have been in tears,” he said.
On the first day of the sale, there were 100 cars in the parking lot with a long line of shoppers leading from the front door.
“You’d think it was a Rolling Stones concert,” Vargas said.
The family hasn’t settled on what’s coming next, but he said they intend to remain in the Highlands, a landscape and community they love.
Customers have until Friday, Nov. 20 to do their final shopping.
