Face masks from Global Journey are a garden centre bestseller
GTN Promotion

There was good news for the range of Global Journey Face Masks last week. The aggregated sales of their face mask range make them the No 1 selling face masks in garden centres according to GTN Bestsellers.

Compared to sales volumes in the GTN Bestsellers Garden Products chart they would be at No 3, sitting between Tomorite 1 litre + 30% free and Tomorite 1 litre!


Since the launch of the Global Journey Face Masks earlier this month, sales in the garden centres have been astounding, with some customers reporting sales of £400 - £800 per day.


Claire Jenner at Frosts Garden Centres said: "Great sales on the face masks last week. You went in as our No.2 supplier on clothing last week at £1.6k. We are now chasing our tail on replenishing.  How soon could you get a stand and stock to our Brampton store? We didn’t include them in the original offer, but with the sales so strong it seems daft they haven’t got it."


Customer feedback is mainly focused on the great quality, superb designs, and great retail price of £3.99. There are 48 designs, 24 adult and 24 kids (48 x 6 @ £1.70) displayed on a slimline stand measuring only 46cm width.


They are breathable baby soft polyester, with an Anti-Microbial finish. They are shaped to hug, washable and re-usable. They have been so successful, that new designs are already being worked on in time for Autumn / Winter.
