Good omen for Christmas product sales

After the dreary end to September, the first week of October saw Christmas sales soar by almost 200% and were on a par with 2017 levels for early October. 


That’s a good omen as 2017 was the highest Christmas for sales volumes that we’ve ever recorded from the GTN Bestsellers Epos data.  Could we be on for another bumper season?

  • Christmas chocolates fare well again even though the Lindt Teddy bear drops to No 2. 
  • The Lindt Mini Advent calendar and the Lindt mini snowmen are both new entries in the GTN Christmas Top 50.
  • Kaemingk’s Owl Glass Bauble 6cm is the highest new entry for the week, in at No 7.
  • Two Kings and Queens Christmas Doormats from Smart Garden Products are high placed new entries this week too at No’s 10 & 11.
