It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Listening to our local radio station yesterday, someone was saying that they start playing their Christmas music in October.   Whilst we’re not quite so early here at Longacres, we thought it worth mentioning – for those of you who like to get into the Christmas spirit early – that we have a range of artificial Christmas trees ready for you to pick up and decorate.

Our range starts from just £29 for a 4 foot Green Arctic Spruce, ranging up to £399 for a 7 foot pre-lit Lake Shore Blue Spruce.  Our stock is from Tree Classics and Kaemingk and if you add some ScentSicles hanging ornaments in a range of natural fragrances, we bet your friends will think they are real trees!  Adding a Wicker Tree Skirt makes you artificial tree look even better.

Our smallest trees start at just 60cm and are a snip at £4.49.  They are great for a table centrepiece.  We also have pre-lit ones to make your table sparkle that little bit more for your Christmas dinner.

Limited space to put a tree and only that one corner of the lounge that it could fit into?  No worries!  Tree Classics present the Green Pencil (needs no sharpening).  This stunning 6ft tree is so slim, we’re sure it would fit into even the tiniest of spaces.

There is also a good selection of artificial garlands and wreaths already in store.  Artificial garlands are ideal for decorating a myriad of furniture from bookcases to mirrors without the mess of pine needles ending up stuck in your sofa or embedded in your carpet!  Our artificial wreaths look lovely on their own, but did you know you can also use them as a base to add some real holly too for that extra special look?  Some even have LED lights included!

If you want to keep the children occupied for a while, you might like to consider a Lego Advent Calendar.  There is a choice of Lego City, Friends or Star Wars in stock now.

We also have a range of house and tree lights and animated figures, as well as the ever popular Lemax Christmas Village collection.  Keep an eye out in store for the full range of Christmas decorations and accessories coming soon.

If this is a tad early for you to be thinking about Christmas, don’t forget we have a huge range of Halloween items on offer in store at the moment. Even Santa likes a pumpkin you know!

The Longacres Food Hall

You may think that here at Longacres we’re all about gardening. We are (of course) but we do enjoy some lovely food as well so we have a large food hall featuring a wide range of products.

From butchers to bakers (no candlestick makers – although we stock a great range of scented candles and holders!), fresh fruit and vegetables, biscuits, snacks and speciality foods from America and South Africa.

Our bakers provide fresh bread and cakes daily, along with croissants, doughnuts and hot soups. Bevans Butchers offer a wide range of meats, including some very tasty marinated dishes to tickle your taste buds. Not only that, they also offer cheeses from around the world, speciality cooked meats, pies and fish.

We also offer seasonal selections ranging from Easter eggs through to Christmas cakes and puddings, and the most delicious Panettone selection. If you’re looking for something different or a yummy treat, we look forward to seeing you in the Food Hall at Longacres Bagshot soon.
