Newsbox November 2017
 
 
This year, Sunday 29th October marked the end of British summer time. For most of us that spells the beginning of the busiest time of the year.

Consumer confidence on the high street is looking good according to industry experts and online is tipped to rise 18%. While competition is always fierce, we're convinced the old retail phrase 'people buy from people' holds true. The success of events like upcoming Small Business Saturday, prove that the more you personalise your service and offering this Christmas, the more you'll have a bumper year.

We've collated some useful gifting tips & merchandising techniques along with a useful 'Guide to Shopping with WBC at Christmas' that includes our last order dates and opening hours.
