Comet Corner, the spirit store located inside Amherst Steele High School, has been closed permanently.
Everything left will be available for purchase at greatly reduced prices during these events at the high school:
• New student orientation, 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Aug. 14.
• District-wide staff meeting, 7-9 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 18.
• Steele open house, 5-6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Shoppers are welcome at any of the events. Everything is while supplies last and all sales final.
Steele PTO secretary Angela Cecil said Comet Corner simply was not making as much money since new state health guidelines ended sales of candy, soda, and other snacks. It was also difficult to find volunteers to sell merchandise at sporting events.
