The Perfect Christmas Gift
It really felt like the beginning of the Christmas countdown this week with the freezing weather we’ve had. Each morning this week I’ve gone out to the car with a full kettle and it’s nearly been frozen again by the time I get back into it. I suppose we can’t really complain though because although it’s cold at least it’s not raining or worse, snowing! There are rumours of snow for this weekend but once it doesn’t reach the levels we had a couple of years ago we should be ok.
At Carlton head office, this week brought the start of the Christmas gift voucher advertising and the launch of this year’s campaign. Although we sell gift vouchers all year round, Christmas is obviously the busiest time as our vouchers are a very popular Christmas gift. We are also running our Carlton Apprentice competition again this year and it is already in full swing as the Carlton Blanchardstown’s Apprentice is in Limerick this weekend selling vouchers. If you’re in the area and looking for the perfect Christmas gift make sure to call into Parkway Shopping Centre and visit the stand.
Also this weekend three of our hotels are holding Christmas craft fairs on Sunday afternoon, the Carlton Shearwater, Carlton Tralee and Carlton Dublin Airport. Craft fairs can be the perfect place to get unique handmade Christmas gifts, plus all hotels will also be selling Carlton vouchers so you can get all your presents in one go.
I’ll probably have to get some of my shopping out of the way this weekend so lets hope the snow holds off for a while! Hope you all have a great weekend whatever you get up to.
