16 Dec: Santa’s second gig is selling appliances at NH Best Buy

New Hampshire is nowhere near the North Pole, but shoppers at the Best Buy store in Portsmouth might not believe their eyes when buying a triple rack, true convection oven from Randy Richardson.

“This feature can be very helpful when you’re baking lots of cookies. And I’m kind of fond of cookies on Christmas,” Randy might say with a wink and a smile.

Along with his white beard, jolly demeanor and hearty laugh, he often has customers ask if his side gig involves elves, toys and reindeer.
