Breakfast with Santa at Wetherells in Selby

Posted by  | Categories: Wetherells News Category

We’re super excited here at Wetherells as we’re expecting a very special guest soon.

Even though he’s a very busy man at this time of year, Santa has agreed to come to Wetherells every Saturday until Christmas! He’s arriving on 23rd November and will be visiting every Saturday after that until 22nd December between 10am and 4pm.

He’s heard wonderful things about the area and wants to meet all the girls and boys who are on his ‘Nice’ list – and even the ones that may be on his ‘Naughty’ list too!

Feeling right at home in our lovely toy department you can visit him in his Grotto there on the second floor.

 

Wetherells Christmas Savings Club

Posted by  | Categories: Wetherells News Category

In the run up to Christmas, we’re all on the look out for ways to save money and make life easier, especially if you’re a parent with a list ready to send off to Santa pretty soon!

As a family run local business, we understand. Which is why we launched our Christmas Savings Club, to help you make your family Christmas the best it can possibly be.

Our Christmas Savings Club is an easy way to:

  • Spread the cost of Christmas
  • Get all your Christmas Shopping done under one roof
  • And not have to worry about sneaking things into the house and finding hiding places away from prying little eyes!

So, how does it work…?

Christmas shopping can be stressful – which is why we’re on hand to help out! All you need to do is visit our Toy Department on the 2nd floor (if you’ve not been before, it’s like a hidden treasure trove!), list in hand, and our friendly staff will help you with everything you need to make a start on your Christmas shopping.

Once you have a minimum of £30 worth of goods, all you need to do is pay a 25% deposit and a £2 admin and storage fee, and we’ll keep everything back for you to collect whenever you’re ready! You can pay off the balance whenever you want (in instalments, or in full), and we can keep everything ready for you to collect any time up to Christmas Eve!

The 25% deposit is non-refundable, however we know what kids can be like! Have they decided they now hate Frozen and don’t want Anna and Elsa for Christmas anymore? Don’t worry! You can swap them out for something else, and the deposit can be switched over to their next craze.

It really is that simple!

But how much is it going to cost me?

The only additional payment on top of your items is a £2 admin and storage fee. We won’t charge you more for any toys or games you’re wanting to buy, or charge any interest if you want to spread the cost. There are no hidden fees, and our staff in the toy department can go through any questions or queries you may have when you come in store!

And what do you have in-store?

Our toy department is full of everything you could need this Christmas, no matter what age your children are! If you’re needing official merchandise from some of this year’s blockbusters, we have items from Frozen 2, Toy Story 4, Avengers, and Abominable, as well as favourites such as Detective Pikachu, Power Rangers and Harry Potter.

From Lego to LOL Surprise, Playmobil to Barbie and RoboAlive to Baby Anabelle, there’s so much to discover, you’ll probably find firm favourites that won’t have even been put on the Christmas list!

For babies and toddlers, we have this year’s must have – the Fisher Price Linkimals Smooth Moves Sloth, as well as Rainbow design favourites like Peter Rabbit and Guess How Much I Love You items, and traditional toys from Melissa & Doug, Janods and Kaloo.

We also have everything for the big kids too, including Gibson jigsaws, and if you’re lucky, we have a few collectable Hornby Coca-Cola trucks in stock!

Make this Christmas the best Christmas yet, with Wetherells

New Season, New Term, New You!

Posted by  | Categories: Wetherells News Category

As the Summer months draw to a close (although we’re still holding out hope for another couple of hot days to enjoy in the garden!), it’s time to think all things Autumn!

As we step into September, the kids (and the parents!) are looking forward to get back to school for a new term, and you might be starting to think about – well, dare we say it? – Christmas shopping…

But one thing is for sure, Wetherells has everything you need to make this Autumn and Winter fantastic, for you, your family, your wardrobe and your home.

Autumnal Hues and Cosy Knits

You may have noticed new stock sneaking into the store over the past couple of weeks – and it won’t be stopping any time soon! A new season means it is time to update your wardrobe with a few essentials to make sure you’re comfortable, warm and stylish during the A/W months.

With an array of autumnal shades and prints to choose from and new styles to enjoy in-store, keep your eyes peeled for this seasons must-haves from your favourite brands.

We have a new collection of Jack & Jones menswear in-store too, with t-shirts just £12 each, or 2 for £20.

Back To School Treats

Going back to school for a new year can be slightly overwhelming for some kids (and teachers!). Not only is it a new routine, perhaps a new teacher or new class, or even a new school completely, but after six whole weeks of relaxing, playing in the sun, snacking when they want and perhaps not going to bed quite as early as usual, it’s going to take its toll.

Why not get some treats ready for the weekends or for good behaviour. We have a huge array of toys and games, both big and small for indoor and outdoor use, to be used whatever the weather.

Beauty Tricks and Treats

The nights are getting a little darker and the temperature seems to be slowly dropping with a few more dark clouds in the sky than there has been previously – Autumn is definitely on its way. We’ve enjoyed another warm summer where staying hydrated has been the main aim – but your skin might need a little help to get ready for the colder months. We have an amazing selection of skincare to revitalise your routine.

We also have new makeup in-store ready to update your collection for the new season, including the new Autumn makeup collections from Clarins – the new Joli blushers are available in 8 stunning shades! Discover them in-store now.

We also have some fantastic fragrances to enjoy, including the addition of the brand new Jimmy Choo Urban Hero for men (with a free gift in-store until stocks last!). We also have the new His and Her’s fragrances from Jean Paul Gaultier – La Belle and Le Beau.

Come in and test them out!

Turn Your Home into an Autumn Haven

With Autumn just around the corner, it’s time to get your home cosy, warm and inviting for those longer, darker evenings. There’s nothing more satisfying than cosying up on the sofa with a good book or your favourite TV show and a warm drink when it’s windy and rainy outside.

We have a huge selection of homewares and furniture in-store for you to update and upgrade your home, no matter what your style. We have a soft furnishing department with everything from made to measure curtains to blinds to pillows, cushions and covers. Our curtain and blind department is second to none in Selby. You will not find such a selection of styles and an equivalent knowledge base or level of service anywhere else. Plus, we’re proud to now offer a 7 day custom made curtain service on selected ranges.

You can also find some great pieces of occasional furniture, beds, wardrobes and sofas in our furniture department, where our staff are highly knowledgeable and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for this season.

Thanks for your support.

I’m extremely pleased with our latest charity fundraiser, the event was well supported by our customers, raising £482.00 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Charity No. 1084305.

The atmosphere throughout  the evening was lovely and during our fashion catwalk displays our novice models were applauded for their style and professionalism, you really would have thought they had stepped straight from a catwalk in Milan.

Delicious finger nibbles & snacks were prepared by our fantastic Coffee Lounge team and served with a choice of Prosecco, Old Mill Ales or fresh orange.

The event was organised by our department heads and brilliantly co-ordinated by my wife Rebecca.

My sincere thanks go to everyone concerned who worked tirelessly for weeks in advance and to our loyal customers who made the whole event as tremendous success.
