I'm curious, because 'hey there' would normally start a greeting, not answer one. The only thing I can think here is that 'hey there' is just a way of acknowledging the other greeting - a way of saying 'later yourself'.

Yeah, sure ! would have been a better way to say it. "hey there" is mostly used when you are meeting a person rather than bidding goodbye. The only meaning that it can have in this context is "Yeah, sure. I acknowledge your goodbye and same to you"
