Make the most of Christmas Shoppers

By Tom Allen    Date released:  7st November 2014
A recent survey of 1,241 UK shoppers by HIM! has found that only 12% of people will do their Christmas Food and Drink shop in one big purchase this year, which gives independent retailers a great opportunity to gain a lot of potential business with alcohol offers like:

Cavalino Bucks Fizz 6x75cl now just £10.99
Cockburn's Fine Ruby Port 6x75cl now only £40.99
Harvest Fruits Mulled Wine 6x70cl only £12.49
Veroni Amaretto PM499 6x50cl Now just £19.50
Vino Spumante Prosecco Extra Dry 6x75cl only £29.99
Most customers probably won't buy their Christmas turkeys from their local convenience store, but independent retailers can still grab a slice of the action by promoting offers on gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce and other 'top-up' groceries.

Ocean Spray Whole Cranberry Sauce 6x250g now only £5.49
OXO Beef Stock Cubes PM135 12x71g now £8.29
Paxo Sage & Onion Stuffing 12x85g now just £4.99
Bisto Gravy Granules 12x170g only £8.99
Knorr Gravy Pots 8x4x28g now just £6.99
Birds Custard Powder PM119 6x300g now only £4.49
Birds Eye Field Fresh Garden Peas 10x400g now just £8.90
Nestle Carnation Topping Evaporated Milk 12x410g now £7.29

Remember, Christmas is often a time for eating sweet things without feeling guilty, so make sure you're stocked up on Christmas treats like:

Cadbury Dairy Box 5x720g now just £27.99
Galaxy Collection Christmas Selection Box 8x254g now only £17.15
Maltesers & Friends Christmas Selection Box 8x242g only £17.15
Sargents 6 Mince Pies buy 6 for £5.00 or 99p each.

With over 6% of shoppers planning to spend more on food this year than they did last, with alcohol and confectionery expected to be the big sellers, make sure you go to or visit your look Booker branch for all your wholesale needs.
