While clearance sales continue, one of Big Bear's area stores is no more. The store at the Frontier Shopping Center in Marietta has a sign telling patrons it is closed.
Only the outline of the sign remains on the building. However, the former Big Bear pharmacy, which recently was taken over by the Giant Eagle chain, remains open for business, and the Marietta store itself won't be vacant for long.
Giant Eagle plans to reopen it next month. Liquidation sales at the chain's 67 stores in West Virginia and Ohio began in November.
