GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Time is running out to get your eclipse glasses. It’s less than a week away!
WFMY News 2 wanted to check around the Triad to see who still has the special specs.

Checking online first, it shows most sellers and website like Amazon are out, or you have to buy a bundle of glasses (usually more than 25 pairs). Stores like Walmart and Lowe’s Home Improvement appear to be out too, after several calls to different Triad locations. Plus, store representatives said they’re not ordering any more.
The Greensboro Science Center, however, reports they should be getting a shipment sometime this week but it will be a limited number.
How crazy is the rush for glasses? At Greensboro Technical Community College on Monday, observatory director Tom English estimated they had about 800 pairs left. Tuesday morning, they were all gone.
