CRESTVIEW — Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are long gone, but sales haven’t ended, local merchants say.

However, north county shoppers wanting large electronics or appliances had better hurry.

“Everybody is getting down to crunch time,” Tommy Rivers, the Crestview Sears manager, said. “The big items are getting hard to get.

“There’ll be sales going on almost daily. We get emails with new sales every morning.”

New merchandise arriving at stores is part of the plan for repeat business.

“All of our stores received some new toys this week that customers haven’t seen on the shelves yet,” Wal-Mart district manager Jon Kurpil said. “We actually had some reductions that came down this week in our toy department to spur a little more shopping.”

Local small businesses continue to offer bargains on everything from sewing machines to TVs, ATVs, clothing and tablet computers.
