A ROADSIDE Christmas tree seller has confidently predicted that business will go from strength to strength.“People cannot get enough of these trees”
Tom Logans garage forecourt-based tree outlet has been overwhelmed since the start of December, more than making up for a generally quiet 2014.
The surge in business has promoted Logan to expand his operation with a move to larger, more expensive premises in January.
Logan said: These trees are big business and I cant see this bubble bursting.
To be completely honest we had a tough October, and an even worse November, but overnight for some reason things turned around and right now each day is busier than the last.
Extrapolating the figures we have at the moment, by the middle of March Ill be selling 1,000 trees a day. By June that figure will top 4,500.”
However Logan’s girlfriend Nikki Hollis said: I tried to gently suggest there might be a dip in sales pretty soon, but Tom was too busy arranging to take delivery of a lorry load of Norwegian spruces on Boxing Day.
