TRURO - Leslie Burrows walked up and down the Co-op aisles speechless as she stared at the nearly empty shelves Wednesday night.
Jocelyn Langille quietly put a few items in her cart.
Staff member Karen MacKay tried to say goodbye to last-minute shoppers but often burst into tears, only able to say, "I'm sorry. I told myself I was not going to do this."
The mood was somber at the Co-op last night. At 6 p.m. the 53-year-old grocery store ceased to exist as it locked its doors for the final time.
"This place means everything ... it's just like a family," said MacKay, an employee of the Co-op for 24 years.
