They say someone has come forward to claim several thousand dollars tucked inside a bundle of folded drapes and found by an employee at the store.
The money was sealed in several envelopes, which contained information showing the money was withdrawn in 2006 from a bank in Guysborough County.
Officers contacted the bank, but it couldn't help since so much time had passed.
After police appealed to the public earlier this month, a woman contacted them to say she had donated the personal belongings of a loved one who passed away in January.
Investigators say they verified her claim about the cash, which has been turned over to the next of kin.
