  WBC: Your Retail Resource
Hello Aemon
Welcome to your Newsbox
Newsbox December 2017
We're officially a nation of last minute Christmas shoppers. Purchases made on the 23rd December have more than quadrupled in the past five years. We all know that's partly due to a surge of online shopping, with giants like Amazon offering speedier than ever same day deliveries. But, it doesn't mean we can't all have a piece of the pie.

Whether you're an online retailer or have a spot on the high street, make sure you keep yourself well stocked with ready-made gifts on display right till the end. Clearly we love a last minute panic, and there's always someone ready to capitalise on it. Make sure that someone is you.

Don't forget New Year's too! The opportunities for sales of gifts and little extras like bottle bags and corkscrews stretch well into the New Year. Below is a list of last minute retail essentials, as well as the stunning Scandi Collection - minimalist gift packaging, designed perfectly for New Year's celebrations.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and all the very best for 2018.
From all of us at WBC
Pop up + branding - Gin Foundry
Gin Foundry are a review site and an online retailer who are currently hosting a series of pop up events across London this festive season. We stopped by to see how they're using the BRIX modular display system to build temporary spaces that can be popped up, packed back down and moved to new sites with minimal hassle and plenty of festive cheer. 
60 seconds with Wines Direct
Voted best wine website in Ireland, Wines Direct know a thing or two about selling, packaging and presentation; they’ve been doing it successfully for years. So we asked them a few questions on how they do Christmas and for some last minute trade secrets on how to promote your Christmas lines this season.

Retail School For 2018
Back by popular demand, we're running two of our most popular Retail School training courses in early 2018.

Held in our showroom and led by retail experts The Metamorphosis Group, spaces are limited and sell out fast. To reserve your space...
Last order dates for Christmas
We’ll be picking & packing orders right up until the 23rd December, but as it’s the busiest time of year for both Father Christmas & our couriers, we advise you allow 1-3 days for delivery. Here’s our guide to shopping with WBC at Christmas, including last order dates and closing times.
