Promotional bags for the BIG Christmas shop and post Christmas Sales

Promotional bags have been used in supermarkets and high street stores for many years now, they are very handy for the consumer, but not for the environment! This is why some stores are encouraging you to get a 'bag for life', as this should reduce the number of plastic bags that are thrown away every day, which is much more environmentally friendly!

Why Should You Use Promotional Bags During The Christmas Season?

The number of promotional bags used in the UK always goes up around Christmas time, mainly because we are all shopping more to make the big day a special one.

With only a few weeks until Christmas, we are all running out of time to buy our Christmas food and presents. Don't worry, it's not just you being unorganised this year - it's a fact that we have fewer weekends before Christmas this year than we did last year. That means fewer Saturday's and Sunday's to get the shopping done. No wonder we're all behind!

Some of the worst affected shops are the supermarkets, as people are panicking about their Christmas food shop. After all, you don't want to buy too early as the food will go off, and you don't want to buy too late as everything may have sold out. This means the middle of the month will be the busiest, and even trying to find a parking space on a Saturday morning will be impossible. But don't worry, there is always online shopping!

The Change In Shopping Habits Has Led To A Change In Branded Bags

Online shopping has been very popular this year, as it seems to lower Christmas stress levels. However, we find the best bit about shopping online is that you don't have to remember your bags for life. Bags for life have been a fantastic idea, as they are a lot better for the environment and are usually a lot stronger than the average plastic bag. 

In Wales supermarkets have even started to charge for plastic bags, as much as 5p per bag, this is getting expensive!

Here at Total Merchandise we have a solution that will keep the environment happy and keep costs low for your customers too, scrunchy shopping bags. It's unlikely your customers will go to the shops without their handbag, these handy shopping bags roll up to fit nicely in bags or even coat pockets!

Promotional bags such as the scrunchy shopping bag can come in very handy this holiday season. Just imagine trying to struggle to the car with a jar of cranberry source, the turkey, the Christmas pudding and the full fat cream, unless you have a few of Santa’s little helpers, it could be a disaster!
