Christmas at Cress

We have a proven track record for excellent availability and reliability over Christmas and we want to make sure this Christmas is no different.

As a business we understand how important Christmas is and know that our customers rely on us to deliver their Christmas stock when promised and in full. This is why we have a dedicated Christmas Team from all areas of the business already working on plans to ensure Christmas 2022 runs as smoothly as possible.

New for Christmas 2022:
- Online ordering of Christmas and all year round products
- Confirmation of orders within 5 working days
- Scheduling of deliveries and advance notice of any stock issues
- Increased our delivery capacity by an additional 500 deliveries per week
- Allocated 30,000 sq feet of our warehouse to Christmas stock

When do I need to have my Christmas order in?
To avoid disappointment and ensure availability, we ask our customers to place their bulk order by Friday 29th July. For all orders we receive after this date, we'll do our best to deliver as much as we can, however this is subject to availability from our suppliers.

Why do I have to order so early, its only summer?
Our suppliers are working harder than ever this year to produce their seasonal products whilst managing a range of challenges currently affecting the supply chain. To ensure you receive the products you want and help our suppliers provide these to you, it's important not to delay and place your Christmas order as early as possible.

When will I receive my Christmas order?
Deliveries of pre-ordered Christmas stock will begin Monday 12th September. We know this is a busy time for our customers so our Customer Service Team will contact you approximately 2 weeks before your delivery is due to confirm date of arrival. This should allow time to make space for your new stock and prepare your shelves for all the festive treats.

Who will deliver my Christmas order?
Christmas orders will be delivered by our Cress Co drivers and vans however this may be on a different day to your normal delivery day and may include Mondays. Its important to check your order on delivery so any shortages or damages can be noted at this point. Your driver will be happy to help you with this.

How do I place my Christmas order?
It's so easy to place your Christmas order this year, from mid May orders can either be placed online via the website or you can download a copy of the order form in Excel to complete and email back to us. Once we receive your order, our Customer Service Team will contact you within 5 working days to confirm your order and schedule delivery.

Please do not send your Christmas order in any other format as only online orders and Excel order forms will be processed.
