Hol­loway’s Gro­cery clos­ing its doors af­ter 60 + years

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial -

When Au­drey Hol­loway bows into re­tire­ment at the end of De­cem­ber, her store will fol­low.

With its closed sign fac­ing out­ward from 9 to 5 for the rest of it days, the lit­tle blue build­ing will be join­ing the hun­dreds of its kind across the is­land.

In time, it will take the bright Pepsi lo­gos out front for a tourist to tell this was once a store. Scat­tered passersby will likely pull into the drive­way for years to come, be­fore they no­tice the empti­ness in­side.

But the town of Har­court will know when it’s gone. It will be missed.

Hol­loway’s has been stand­ing there serv­ing the same peo­ple for over 60 years.
