If you have not organized delivery of your hampers and wine gifts yet, well, you had better get on with it! Courier companies are just about coping, currently, but they are under more pressure than ever. Waiting until the last minute will not help anybody. Perhaps you have not chosen your gifts yet? Men, especially, are known for the stereotypical last-minute-dash. Take it from me, gentlemen, you are better doing it now. This year, if never again, shop early – and then sit back. Just think how smug you will feel getting it all done with a week or two to spare! There`s also the Christmas food shopping for many of you to think about: the smoked salmon, the turkey, the cheeses. You can order it all here, but please, do so now if you have not already. The supply line is already creaking. Our G&J turkeys are the best you`ll find, but they are in high demand and availability is limited. Our delicious cheeses are being snapped up at an alarming rate, as are our chocolates. We anticipate shortages. Our elf, our chief hamper-packer, is on the case, sprinkling the magic dust wherever she goes. Santa is delivering parcels early, to help ease the congestion. We are all working hard to ensure everyone gets everything they want this Christmas, in a timely manner. All you need to do is to pop into the shop, drop us an email, or give us a call. We`ll take care of the rest of it for you. But we want to do more than just supply quality product and excellent service, ladies, and gentlemen. This coming Christmas we want The Wine Centre to be a place of joy for you all to visit. Come join us for a mince pie, a chocolate, a tipple, or even just a chat. And be sure to bring your little ones to meet our elf. She will be handing out sweets between 11am and 1pm on Saturday 11th. Any other elves around that morning, you are welcome to join us. Happy Christmas everyone!
