The Festive Lights store first opened its doors back on the 1st October 1999, at our Charnock Richard site that is still home to our offices today. Each year the range of products and quality of displays was improved and thousands of people enjoyed the Festive Lights experience, visiting from all over the UK.
In 2013 the decision was taken that, for the first time since ’99, we would not open a physical retail store at this location, instead opening a smaller showroom in Wigan at the site of our warehouse. This was not a decision that was taken lightly, but there were some very compelling reasons as to why it was. Firstly, stock. The new store is on the same location as our warehouse, meaning that it has permanent access to all of our stock. This also means that we can match the website prices and honour online promotions in-store - something that we were never able to do before.The move enabled us to reduce strain on our resources and reduce our costs, meaning that we have been able to keep our prices as low as conceivably possible!
Since those early days, the online side of our business, here at festive-lights.com, has grown massively and we are now able to offer video and other interactive content both on the website and through our social media channels that can in may ways replicate the store experience. The vast majority of our business is actually done online these days.
