To see the special white dot clearance stickers come through the store was when it really started to sink in. Westgate was going to close. No amount of quickly drawn happy faces on the stickers would change the outcome. Neither would throwing the stickers away. Every single book, and board game, and bookmark, and plushy toy, every single item we couldn’t ship back to the publishers was going to need a sticker. We had a lot of stickers. Applying those stickers felt like I was personally closing the store that much quicker.
