Advent Calendars before the 1st of December? Not unusual at Hancocks!

Posted on 16th October, 2014

Nothing says ‘It’s nearly Christmas’ quite like opening that first advent calendar window on the 1st of December and enjoying a delicious chocolate. At Hancocks, we know full well how important the advent calendar tradition is to your customers; adults and children alike, so we want to help you make the most of this looming festive opportunity for your business.

It’s important to get chocolate filled advent calendars into your shop as early as possible, allowing your customers to familiarise themselves with the range you can offer them. They’ll then come back and buy when they’re ready.

Make sure that the advent calendars are displayed prominantly, giving them clear visibility in your shop. As such a vital product during the festive season, it is important to ensure your customers can easily spot your advent calendars and other Christmas goodies. Despite some customers buying advent calendars at the last minute, many will pick them up in the weeks (and sometimes months) leading up to the first of December to ensure that they can buy the ones they want whilst they are available.

Hancocks has a wide variety of advent calendars for sale, with brands including Lindt, Cadbury and Mars as well as our two great value £1 chocolate filled advent calendars; one with a Christmas theme and the other a nativity scene. Both were big sellers in 2013 and high sales are expected once again this year.

Please visit for Hancocks’ full range of Advent Calendars. We are also happy to advise you on how to make the most of your Christmas confectionery over the upcoming festive period. If you are close to one of our cash & carries just pop in and have a chat or you can phone our online team on 01509 230 796, or even email
