The severe winters over the last few years coupled with the ever increasing rise in oil and gas prices has seen bumper sales for GR8Fires. The increasing popularity and awareness of wood burning stoves as an environmentally friendly alternative has also contributed to improving sales.
Even despite some weather forecasts predicting a milder winter GR8Fires http://www.gr8fires.co.uk still expect bumper sales over Christmas and into the longer colder winter days.
Adam Ross, manager of GR8Fires said: “This year we’re expecting sales to be up again. The website and our e-commerce has continued to go from strength to strength, it has enabled us to compete competitively online and judging by the amount of sales and positive feedback with our products and support our customers seem very happy, that’s not to say we can rest on our laurels. We’ll continue to strive to offer a great service, with great prices.”
“This Christmas and winter is a great opportunity for us, this year in particular has seen us embark on a more sustained internet marketing campaign, including investing heavily in Google's pay per click Adwords. This has had a very positive effect and enabled us to raise our online profile and increase our brand awareness.”
“We have also spent a lot of time listening to the feedback and reviews that are customers have given us and improved our customer support immensely.”

Boiler stoves are also proving very popular this year with customers linking their stoves into heating systems and distributing the heat throughout their properties. Use of boiler stoves with heat store devices is also a growth area. With this setup the end user can fire up their boiler stove and burn at maximum rate and the heat store device will store the excess heat and distribute it back evenly to the heating system as and when required.
The biggest problem for the retailer is getting stock from the manufacturers. Huge demand is causing supply problems and lead times from some manufacturers are running out further every week. Customers are advised to make sure and order early to avoid disappointment.
