A little extra for your Christmas…

An example of one of our vouchers

With almost all of the Christmas stock now in, the only thing that remains for us to do is make it easier for you to buy the stuff.  One of the best ways we’ve found is to offer up gift certificates for both the delicatessen and the café (or tearoom, whatever).

This year we’re offering Wivenhoe a selection of vouchers.  There’s £5, £10 and £20.  What’s even better is that these vouchers can be used on either side of the business, so it doesn’t matter if you want to knock a little off the bill when bringing the family out for lunch, or just treat a friend to a delicious bottle of wine.

The vouchers will be on sale from Wednesday, 23rd November.

We’re also going to start taking Christmas orders on the 23rd; in addition to placing your order next time you visit the deli, we’ll also have order forms available to pick up, download, print out, etc.  Or you can just e-mail us.  Whatever is easiest for you.

Other Christmas Stuff

Unfortunately we don’t have the space available to provide Turkeys this year, but the rest of our range is available as usual.

Be aware that Christmas Eve is bedlam in the shop and last minute attempts to obtain a full cheeseboard can often be in vain, so make sure to order early!  In addition to the forms, the Christmas section will also highlight our holiday opening hours, so don’t forget to check back.

( Note from Michael: I don’t like seeing websites or blogs with “Sorry I haven’t posted, but…” messages, but I like to keep people informed, so here’s ours.  We’re currently suffering a complete lack of having-a-digital-camera, so all of the interesting articles on our deli stock and café specials are going unposted.  We will rectify this as soon as is humanly possible. )
