Patriotic Peeks and our Royal bunting
For the third year in a row we have seem patriotic bunting and flags fly out of our premises because of Royal occasions.
This year of course we’ve had the Royal baby, last year it was the Jubilee and the year before that it was the Royal wedding.
In the last six weeks or so we’ve seen sales soar – and not just in the UK.
Patriotic ex-pats in Canada and Australia have been buying red, white and blue bunting in preparation for the birth of the future King.
The military has also been stocking up, to help servicemen and women celebrate where ever they are in the world.
Sales of our patriotic goods were up 25 per cent in the last six weeks compared with an average year.
Royal supporters are not having street parties as they did for the Jubilee, but instead are having house parties.
Street parties are too difficult to organise when no one knows when the day will be!
Pubs and hotels are also theming events around the birth and our union flags and bunting will help set the scenes.
We’ve been lucky with the number of Royal events recently, and hopefully we’ll have more in the years to come.
We hope that Kate and Wills will have another baby - and we’re all waiting for the day when Prince Harry ties the knot!
But rest assured, whatever the occasion Peeks is ready to supply everything to celebrate it.
