Who’s Getting The 50,000 Christmas Cds And 11.3 Million Christmas Cards This Christmas From The Warehouse?
Crazy Christmas facts and figures prove that the pre-Christmas months are the busiest time of year for present buyers and fans of the festive season at The Warehouse.
Christmas 2006 at The Warehouse:
Christmas Cards 11.3 million were sold this year – that’s eight for every household in New Zealand!
Christmas Trees End to end, all the Christmas trees sold this December at The Warehouse would stretch along State Highway 1 from Auckland to Hamilton.
Wrapped up in Christmas The Warehouse has sold 7.7 million meters of Christmas wrapping paper, enough to cover the west coast of NZ from top to toe.
Christmas Tunes Over 50,000 Christmas CDs were sold in December, which if played continuously, would take over seven years for one person to listen to.
Summer Shoes If all the summer shoes sold so far this season were assembled in a straight line, they would extend from Auckland to Rotorua. If a straight line of all the FROGS sold so far this season was floated across the Cook Straight, there would be enough for two crossings.
Gaming console boxes If all the gaming console boxes sold during November and December were piled on top of each other they would stack up to 1866.8 metres, which is over five and a half times the height of the Auckland Sky Tower (328 metres).
DVDs There were over 750,000 DVDs sold at The Warehouse in December, enough for two per person for everyone in Hamilton, Tauranga, Rotorua, and Taupo.
The Warehouse tills won’t get a respite after Christmas either, with The Warehouse Boxing Day Sale kicking off from December 26th to 28th. Customers will be able to grab great bargains, with discounts across a range of departments, such as 20% off appliances, toys, bedroom and lounge furniture, and 30% on all clothing, footwear and accessories, outdoor furniture, and scooters and skateboards.
