Record Christmas week sets the scene


Christmas has really got into gear with footfall and sales heading in the right direction as we move into December.


The GTN Bestsellers total sales index for November ended the month down 4.3% but an all time record week for Christmas sales volumes at the end of the month sets the scene for a bumper run towards Christmas Eve.  


Given the number of people seen shopping in centres during this week and no snow forecast, serious upsides could be on the cards for the next two weeks.



GTN Bestsellers Top 50 sales volumes compared to the same week last year: week 48

  • Garden Products Top 50 – up 16%
  • Growing Media Top 50 – down 2%
  • Wild Bird Care Top 50 – down 32%
  • Christmas Products Top 50 – up 2%
  • All Plants index – static 0%
  • All Items index – static 0%
