Christmas is a massive event at Barretts, and we go all out to turn our wonderful store into a winter wonderland!
This year, 13 of us (including Ann Barrett, store founder) began the transformation last Sunday (the 25th) at 9:30am sharp. Below are some pictures taken during the day...
Hannah starts to put lights on one of 6 trees we have on display this year.
Store Manager Michael begins to add shelves to our new display area. Dave and Colin worked tirelessly, day and night to build it, it looks great!
Vicki and Sue were in charge of our 'Snowy' display.
Glynis (our accounts manager) cooks an amazing lunch for the staff every year, this year we had homemade beef lasagne, yum!
