Londis today announced that its pre sales for Christmas confectionery and grocery are the strongest experienced throughout the company’s 51 year history.
Overall a larger amount of products have been ordered by a greater number of retailers, as Londis continues to support its retailers and offer its customers ‘all you need for everyday living’. Specifically, Londis’ retail partners placed 853 orders in total, smashing last year’s record of 840. This fantastic result is all the more significant given that retailers’ had a shorter period of time to complete their orders due to the impending World Cup, plus the fact that the Budget (22 June) fell during this time.
Despite a tough economic climate, and the fact that we are only half way through the year, Londis retailers are clearly confident that everyone will be stocking up for Christmas 2010, demonstrating confidence in both Londis (who have improved delivery efficiency to ensure that 2010 will be the most streamlined and proficient yet) and also the market.
Says Paul Courtney, Londis Sales Director, “These strong figures highlight the confidence that our retailers have in both the Londis range and promotions we are offering. It also speaks volumes about the overall convenience market and I’m delighted that Londis is leading the way with increased sales.“
