We understand what you’re thinking. Do I really need to consider Christmas already?
Well if you own a product that will see a mass influx of sales across December, then you most definitely should be considering your options as we head towards the Christmas period. After all, preparing early is always miles more beneficial than leaving it to the last minute.
It will come as no surprise to learn that local businesses who sell unique products thrive when it comes to Christmas, with local businesses receiving more than £8 billion in total sales last Christmas – as more shoppers went to buy gifts, food and decorations from independents over the big store chains. A large part of this is off the back of the pandemic, where shoppers preferred to help out local businesses who may have struggled during this time.
This trend seems to be continuing as we head towards Christmas 2022, with many shoppers from last year favouring these local businesses and the quality and care they produce. A study of 2,000 adults who celebrate the festive season found that 64% plan to do some of their shopping via small enterprises once again, each spending an average of £280.53 across all sectors of Christmas buying. After all, Christmas is much more than just gifts!
Gifts (61%), cards (47%) and sweet foods (39%) are the items most likely to be bought, with many local businesses specialising over these Christmas themed products.
