B&Q Sees Huge Rise In Website Searches For 'Christmas'

BQ Wood Green 2

Is there such a thing as too early to plan for Christmas? Not according to some shoppers, as leading home improvement retailer B&Q has already seen their first Christmas tree sale of the year take place on 3rd August.  

With the cooler weather seemingly here to stay and summer nowhere to be found, it appears that this is making Brits think ahead to Christmas. B&Q has seen a huge 130% increase in Christmas searches this August, compared to this time last year, showing that for many, it’s never too early to start preparing for Christmas and the festive shopping and planning continues to get earlier each year.  

Whether it’s a bargain £7.99 Mini Christmas Tree or a deluxe frosted wreath that’s getting the festive juices flowing, B&Q is helping customers beat the Christmas rush this year with its choice of 3,500 different Christmas trees already available to buy at  

From trees to wreaths to advent calendars, B&Q has something for everyone this Christmas, no matter when the Christmas shopping begins. With B&Q's ongoing focus on great value and convenience, the retailer is aiming to make shopping easier and more accessible for customers this Winter with over 30,000 products in store available for immediate pick-up or at for one-hour, next day click and collect or home delivery.
