Most of our Christmas stock has now arrived in a flurry of couriers, enormous cardboard boxes and rather a lot of bubble wrap and polystyrene fill! Our stockroom now resembles Santa’s Grotto after delivery has taken place.
We will all be working particularly hard over the next week, to finalise our Festive Favourites Supplement and to then ensure all of our products are available through the website for early festive fanatics.
The really hard and not so exciting part in the pre-Christmas flurry, is of course the stock checking. The decorations and Christmas cards now number in the hundreds and in some product lines, the thousands… that is alot of baubles and greetings cards for any team to count. It has to be said we have all been indulging in chocolate, coffee and indeed on some later evenings, wine! Ho hummm or should that be “HO, HO, HO”?
