The Bleak weather outlook at the Christmas rush sees many stay
indoors to do their Christmas shopping, with record sales recorded at
Two weeks of bitter cold, snow and ice has kept many Christmas shoppers indoors,
however the current thaw has seen shoppers head out in their droves to make up for
lost time with shopping centres and high streets inundated. However with a further
cold front fast approaching, and more subzero temperatures expected later this week,
anyone looking to leave Christmas shopping until the weekend could well be in for a
miserable time. With a few days still left to post in time for Christmas, the sales
rush is being felt at PureKit.com, the nation’s favourite online supplier of outdoor clothing and footwear.
Whilst many head out and brave the queues and cold weather, online stores such as
Purekit.com have enjoyed record visitors and sales, as many shoppers choose to ease
the burden this year by ordering their presents and warm winter clothing online.
The website has long been a popular choice in the run up to Christmas, with the full
range of outdoor footwear and equipment the natural place to shop for lovers of the
great outdoors. However more and more shoppers are taking advantage of the
convenience of internet shopping with the conditions outdoors being an extra
incentive to buy many presents online this year.
With temperatures plummeting as low as -10ºC over the past days, and much of the
east of the country looking to have more of the same later this week, Purekit.com
has seen an extraordinary rise in sales of warm winter apparel. Brands well known
for their protection from extreme temperatures such as Berghaus and Icebreaker merino clothing have
been the most popular choice during the recent cold snap, providing thin and warm
layers, with exceptional weather protection. “Icebreaker underwear and performance
outerwear is selling particularly well” claims Purekit.com MD Richard Gundle, when
asked about customer trends at the online store.
However it is the range of footwear which is seeing the greatest warehouse activity,
with snow boots, warm winter footwear and wellington boots enjoying record sales.“We have had to rush to get our orders in to keep up with the increased demand” says
Gundle. He goes on to say that “with more cold weather on the way later this week we
are preparing for a busy week ahead”.
The convenience and speed of internet shopping, the particularly cold weather, and
unbearable Christmas queues have seen many people make the switch this year, and
take the stress free approach to shopping. Warm clothing and protective footwear
appear to be the ideal presents this year, so it’s no surprise that sales are so
strong at Purekit.com.
