Shoppers have returned to the British high street in their thousands this year, as recent figures have revealed that more consumers than expected went Christmas shopping during the final weekend before Christmas, spending an estimated £1 billion on the Saturday before Christmas alone.
While this is great news for retailers after a rather difficult year, it isn't great news for customers, as more sales means more crowds and also longer waiting times. However, shoppers who still have presents to buy needn't worry because Christmas Hamper have a solution.
A spokesperson for Christmas Hamper explains: “December has been a much more profitable period for retailers than previously expected, as more consumers than expected have returned to the high street. However, the increase in sales has led to issues for customers, as the surge in people visiting shops, supermarkets and other retail centres had meant that their shopping experience might not have been as enjoyable. At Christmas Hamper, we know how stressful Christmas shopping can be, and so we've taken a lot of time and care to that our customers can order our hampers in the comfort of their own home, and with no stress.
While the retail figures from last weekend before Christmas have revealed that shoppers in the UK spent an impressive £1.5 million every minute last Saturday, the high street is obviously a very busy place to be this Christmas. But at Christmas Hamper, they have some advice for any shopper that has to do last minute chopping during the festive season, including the final day to order gifts to ensure they arrive before Christmas day.
The spokesperson for Christmas Hamper continues: “Christmas time is obviously the busiest time of year to go shopping, with so much to buy, such as cards, wrapping paper, gifts, toys and hampers but we realise that there are certain times when a consumer has to go to the high street or their supermarket to get some last minute presents and other essentials for the festive season.
"So our advice to customers is that if they are worrying about going shopping during this time, then they should be organised, they need to have a plan before they leave the house: such as writing a list of what they need, how much it costs, and where they have to buy it, and they should leave the house early in order to beat the crowds. If they are ordering presents online, then it's vital that they are aware of the final day to order gifts to ensure Christmas delivery.
At Christmas Hamper, our final order date before Christmas is the 21st of December (EDITOR: That's today!) which means that anyone who orders on this date will receive their hamper before the 25th. Once all the shopping is done, it's time to relax and enjoy Christmas, and so we want to wish all our customers a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.”
