As part of its ongoing commitment to help garden centres maximise festive sales, Premium Christmas Tree is reinforcing the success of its Nordmann Slimline tree range and is urging retailers to get in touch to find out more about this fast-moving profit opportunity.
60% slimmer trees
The Nordmann Slimline tree from Premium Christmas Trees - a proud member of the British Christmas Tree Growers’ Association – is the result of six years of research and requires five years of care, attention and specialist skills such as hand-pruning before allowing the tree to hone its shape for the final year.
Designed for modern living in mind
The reason for the introduction of the Nordmann Slimline tree is simple – it meets the needs of modern living. More and more of us are now living in contemporary, urban settings whilst new-build homes are offering convenience on a much smaller scale compared to homes of yesteryear. On average, new build homes are 32% smaller, whilst apartment living has seen the average lounge reduce from 24.9m2 to just 17.1m2. While the nation’s shrinking living rooms may have dissuaded consumers from purchasing a real Christmas tree in the past, slimline trees now have the potential to open-up new revenue streams for retailers.
Sophie Holt, Director of Premium Christmas Trees says: “A successful retailer will always be looking for ways to ensure that their offering meets the ever-changing needs of their customers, and Christmas trees are no different. A real Christmas tree holds a certain type of magic and for many a live tree is the true heart of the festive season. However, space limitations within the home continue to see many turn to artificial trees to meet their needs. With our Nordmann slimline trees there is now a viable option for bringing real trees into even the smallest home. Since their launch they have proven their worth, far exceeding our own expectations, with retailers telling us that our Nordmann Slimline trees are always the first to sell out and are also a great way of building customer loyalty year after year.”
