It’s that time of year again, when you suddenly realise how little time you have left until Christmas! But there’s no need to panic, Southend High Street has plenty to offer in terms of decorations and gifts.
Seen something online and are considering buying it? Make a trip into town to see it in person, that way you can be absolutely sure that it’s what you’re looking for. Buying presents in person from the High Street also means you’ll avoid having to wait a minimum of 3-5 days to receive them, and saves you the stress of wondering if they’ll make it through the post before Christmas at all!
There are other benefits to doing your Christmas shopping in the High Street, such as improved health. Walking around the shops, rather than browsing the internet at home, means you’ll be getting in some important exercise without it feeling like a chore. Plus you could end up spotting the perfect gift you didn’t even know you were looking for. So why not jump on a bus or train and bring back a few of those ‘I saw you and thought of this’ gifts? After all they’re the best kind!
In the build up to Christmas Southend High Street will be turning the Christmas Tree Lights on at 7:30pm on Saturday 19th November, with the help and presence of BBC Essex where the last firework display of the year will also take place.
