Sale signs on products at the Sears Hometown Store in St. Albert on Thursday.

The Sears Hometown Store in St. Albert is quickly emptying out their inventory as liquidation sales sweep through the store.

It was announced on June 22 that the store would face closure. The store will remain open until Aug. 17.

“We don’t have much left,” says store owner Sean Nawaz.

Furniture and mattresses are up to 70 per cent off and major appliances are up to 30 per cent off.

There will be no returns, but all warranties and repair guarantees will be honoured through Sears Canada.

Store hours are Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

While the Sears Canada inventory will be cleared out of the space, Nawaz says he plans on turning the business into his own independent appliance store.

With plans to launch in September, Nawaz will sell Ashley Furniture appliances, furniture and décor.

A new restaurant is opening in St. Albert featuring healthy foods focused on clean eating.

Eat Clean Healthy Grill and Juice Bar features foods for bodybuilding, workout, and weight loss. It also offers paleo and vegetarian options as well as smoothies and fresh-pressed juices.

When going through the drive-thru, the menu will be broken into three categories: carbs, protein and vegetables.

The restaurant is owned by Dan Koren and Stacy Clough, who moved into St. Albert nine years ago.

“Stacy and myself both like to live a healthy, active lifestyle,” Koren says. “We always found that there wasn’t many healthy places to eat at when you’re in a hurry, and not one that we could find that offered drive-thru services.”

After stopping at an Eat Clean Healthy Grill and Juice Bar in Fort McMurray, they knew they wanted to open their own location.
