Woolworths.co.uk has announced it is expecting high sales of party decorations and wedding memorabilia as the UK prepares for the Royal Wedding.
Dan Rubel, brand director at the online family superstore commented: “With the Royal Wedding just around the corner, as well as the Easter bank holiday coming up, people are planning their street parties now and making sure they don’t miss out on royal wedding souvenirs before the big day.
“Many families will be spending this period at home due to the warmer weather and tighter budgets, which has meant a big rise in activity on the site, particularly in the Royal Wedding party range.”
To date Woolworths.co.uk has sold enough bunting to go around Buckingham Palace four times, enough balloons to cover a football pitch and enough Royal Wedding party cups and glasses to serve champagne to everyone in London and Liverpool combined.
The Royal Wedding has got everyone in the party mood, opting to spend money on royal wedding decorations and merchandise from the site for a fun, family weekend.
Toy buyers from Woolworths.co.uk have also announced that Woolworths has doubled its order of popular children’s outdoor toys and furniture to meet demand, as families treat their children to keep them entertained during the bank holidays, including the Royal Wedding. Following the hot weather this month Woolies’ sales hit record levels, and with three bank holidays approaching, sales are expected to soar.
