After the massive Christmas record set at the end of November it’s perhaps no surprise that sales dropped off in the first week of December.
The GTN Bestsellers Christmas sales index now sits at level with last year to date, but that’s taken from the end of October and we know many centres started selling Christmas much earlier this year, so the Christmas total needs taking that into account.
Real Christmas Trees have sold through in muct higher volumes, earlier this year, so much so that two lines are on a par with the lower price point volume selling Christmas Products this year.
Highlights of the week were:
Needlefresh Nordmann Christmas Trees 210/240cm are the highest new entry at No 9.
Playwrite’s Magic Snow with Shovel is the highest re-entry at No 11.
Konstsmide’s Fibre Optic Santa With Sledge & Reindeer climbs 21 places up the GTN Christmas Chart to No 13.
