History

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 was at the same location as our warehouse, meaning it had permanent access to all of our stock. This also meant that we could match the website prices and honour online promotions in-store - something that we were never able to do before.The move furthermore enabled us to reduce the strain on our resources and reduce our costs, but unfortunately maintaining the shop was still too costly and increasingly, unnecessary. The shop opens for the final time in 2019, albeit with reduced opening hours. Since those early days, the online side of our business has grown massively and now accounts for the vast majority of our business. We're always striving to achieve that same personalised, friendly in-store experience, online - and will continue on our mission to bring joy to our customers.
