The Sun

The sun is one of the largest of the national tabloids published in the UK and Ireland. It is the eighth largest published in any language in the world. In December 2019 they featured our ’20 Christmas Songs’ brain teaser. This brain teaser featured a cartoon image with 20 popular Christmas songs hidden in the picture and you had to find them in under 5 minutes, however The Sun reported that no-one had managed to do it in that time.

Christmas at Hayes is a special time with Santa’s Grotto selling out in October and a huge area of floor space given over to a show-stopping display, which attracts customers from all over the country. Many tourists schedule their winter break to coincide with the opening of the Christmas display. Our web-shop is one of the largest online retailers of artificial Christmas trees, from small 3’ trees for the smallest apartment to giant 18’ commercial trees for shopping centres and hotel foyers. We not only sell green trees but also the snowy and frosted trees which are steadily rising in popularity. Sales of pre-lit trees are now outstripping unlit trees as customers now don’t want the hassle and frustration, not to mention the time it takes, of putting lights onto and taking them off the tree, and always ending up with a rats nest to sort out the following year.
