Changeable weather brings Bosmere sales surge for garden furniture and barbecue covers

The unusual weather patterns over the last month have given Bosmere a "significant" increase in sales of their covers for outdoor garden furniture and barbecues.

Following several weeks of lovely sunny weather, many parts of the UK experienced severe storms and wet weather which led consumers to buy covers for their newly purchsed outdoor living products.

Bosmere sales director, Steve Millington said "Over the last two weeks our sales office has seen a huge increase in orders for the whole range of covers. This has resulted in the highest intake of in-season orders in the company’s history.

"Because of the substantial stockholding at our Gatwick distribution centre, we have been able to ensure fast turnaround of customer’s orders."

Bosmere will be showcasing more than 150 new products at Glee 2013 including the new ‘Storm Black by Bosmere’ range of urban chic covers, launched at Solex.

Millington added: "At Glee it will not be 'me-too' products. It's all from innovation and research."
