Our Supplier Phone Line has been ringing off the hook this week as they are all getting in touch to try and confirm our Christmas Order Requirements.
Kate & Neil have been busy preparing and studying stock spreadsheets to estimate how many of each Christmas Hamper & Gift Basket we are likely to sell and in turn calculate the numbers of each product required. They have this done to a fine art by now, but there are always some last minute changes due to product availability etc. I heard Neil saying he is 75% of the way through his spreadsheet and has been able to confirm many of the orders already, with the remaining ones being confirmed at the start of next week.
The rest of us are busy editing, copying, pasting and merchandising the offering so as our lovely Customers can start browsing and deciding which Christmas Hamper or Gift Basket they would like to reserve/buy. Christmas probably still seems quite a way off for most of you, but we think about it all year round as it is such a mammoth undertaking.
We have some exciting new products and suppliers for the 2017 range, as well as some old favourites. We like to refresh the offering each year so as our repeat customers have something new to choose from. I'll bring you further details on these over the coming weeks, along with some suggestions of baskets and hampers you may like the best.
Back for another year is our Best Selling Christmas Traditional Celebration Hamper so this is always a good starting point. Happy Shopping!
