It's been called Vancouver's ugliest building -- and tomorrow, the downtown Sears closes its doors for good.
And not even the employees seem too upset.
Brian Stone has managed the store since it opened as Sears 12 years ago.
Before then it had been an Eatons location.
Stone says more than 25-million dollars in inventory has been sold over the past several months -- and the store is almost completely empty.
As for the mood among the store's 300 or so employees?
"The workers are extremely happy actually, they have great morale. All the associates were offered positions in other Sears stores, or they could take a severance package."
The Sears building is in for a big facelift.
Nordstorm is coming to town -- bringing with it a massive redevelopment of the location.
It's set to open in 2015.
