Stephanie Hoadley, a store associate at A Very Merry Christmas Store on Front Street, styles ornaments on a display tree on Saturday during the final day of the store’s Christmas in July sale.  The event allowed downtown shoppers to beat the heat with refreshments provided by Cross Creek Sandwich Shop, door prizes and 25 percent off merchandise storewide. In addition to its Christmas inventory, the store offers birthday and holiday event decor and is open Monday through Saturday year-round. MEGAN REYNOLDS PHOTO
