Christmas is less than 6 months away. That fact can be hard to swallow in the middle of summer, but when you’re in the business of Christmas displays the countdown is always running in the back of your mind.
As mentioned in a previous blog, Christmas never ends for us. While everyone else is packing away their Christmas décor, we are doing the same, but for multiple commercial and residential properties as well as city streets. When Christmas becomes a distant memory for everyone else as they soak up the sun, we are refurbishing the many Christmas displays we store in-house and when the refurbishing is complete and we hit the 6 months until Christmas mark, we begin planning for the upcoming season.
It’s around this time that we begin to discuss new Christmas display designs and fabricate samples. While this is being done our sales team begins calling our existing customers to discuss retro fitting their existing displays so we can complete that work before our Christmas team begins manufacturing new displays.
As Santa’s favourite time of year gets closer, our sales team further switches focus to Christmas, meeting with a number of BIAs and property managers and finalizing orders.
In October our Christmas production goes into overdrive as they begin to assemble décor (including LED rope light displays, Christmas trees and wreaths) for new orders. The installations begin in early October with tree lighting installs usually taking place before Halloween and décor installations taking place after and continuing through to mid December.
As you may or may not know, Christmas displays is where we got our start and although our company has grown to include other divisions, our Christmas division remain a huge part of Classic Displays and something we all take great pride in. That’s why we want to help bring a touch of Christmas to as many streets and commercial and retail properties as we can. Last year we installed 135 Christmas Displays throughout Ontario, so you can imagine how important building and maintaining a schedule is throughout such a busy season. That’s why we encourage all BIAs and property managers to start thinking about Christmas now.
For us no project is too big or small. With a variety of displays to choose from or the option to create customized displays available, any of our sales associates would be more than happy to meet with you to discuss the upcoming Christmas season and how we can work together to create your very own winter wonderland.
