Post-Christmas deals in KOTA Territory; holiday sales good

Posted:

While holiday sales may be down nationally, and retailers find themselves with a great surplus of inventory, in KOTA Territory, businesses profited from steady seasonal traffic.

Brad Dye, Cabela's general manager, says his store had a really good year. Of course, there are left-over products, but Dye says it's not an overbearing amount. The deals being offered at Cabela's are the same deals from the holiday.

Dye says the store experiences a lot of post-Christmas sales as well. "We sell a bunch of gift cards, so we get a lot of that traffic," said Dye. "We still have a lot of kids out of school and a lot of vacations going on, so the end of December and the first part of January, until kids go back to school, we still have a lot of traffic."

Locally, Weathered Vane had a great season too. Marlow Scherbenske, owner, says holiday sales are up 8% compared to last year. Again, there are left-over products, which are being offered at a discount to get ready for a new season.  "Yeah, we try to be as clean as we can with our holiday merchandise by the second week of January," said Scherbenske.
 
Both stores will be offering discounted merchandise throughout the next two weeks.

Karl Merbach, superintendent of the Solid Waste Operations, said the city decided to take the money it would have used to repair the Fairmont site and build the new facility.
