Christmas grows by 21% with chocolate as the topping
Christmas sales increased by 21% week on week in the GTN Bestsellers Epos data but fell 30% short of last year’s levels for the week. Some centres have started Christmas earlier, but as many are opening later than last year so we’ll have to wait for few weeks to get a better like-for-like comparison.
At the top of the GTN Christmas chart a Christmas chocolate line moves up to No 1 and eight other Christmas chocolate lines feature in the GTN Top 50.
Highlights of the week were:
Lindt Teddy Bear 10g moves up one place to be the No 1 Bestselling Christmas line.
Lindt Children's Advent Calendar moves up 5 places to No 10.
Lindt Mini Snowman 5 Pack 50g climbed the most places up the chart moving from No 49 last week to No 26 this week.
Koopman 10 Warm White Battery Operated Led Acrylic Star Lights were the highest new-entry for the week at No 9.
