The season of goodwill has begun at Macclesfield furniture store Arighi Bianchi – and this year it has launched a number of extra special initiatives for the local community.
Renowned for its dazzling displays and magical Christmas Shop, Arighi Bianchi has once again pulled out all the stops to sprinkle some Christmas magic over Macclesfield with a series of events and giveaways to bring some festive cheer to the local community.
The iconic store in the centre of Macclesfield has been transformed into a jaw-dropping 110ft tall Advent Calendar – lighting up one of the town's busiest routes. With a green and gold heritage theme to match the store's Victorian architecture, the advent calendar is fast becoming one of Macclesfield's festive traditions.
For the first time in its 168-year history it will also be giving children in the area the chance to meet Father Christmas for free when he visits the store on Sunday 4th December. The free experience will run from 10am to 2pm with no need to book. Children can meet Father Christmas in his grotto at the front of the store, tell him what's on their wish list and have their photograph taken in the beautiful grotto. *The first 100 children to arrive will also receive a gift.
The Café Bar at Arighi Bianchi will launch its Christmas menu from Monday 28th November – featuring Cheshire turkey breast and all the trimmings and Christmas pudding. Available Monday to Saturday.
For extra Christmas cheer the family-run business is also offering everyone the chance to win a £200 shopping spree in the run up to Christmas. Entry into the competition is free via its website https://www.arighibianchi.co.uk/pages/christmas-competition and the voucher can be used both online and in store.
Arighi Bianchi is also running another giveaway with Happy Radio UK. The station's front man renown DJ Darren Proctor will be broadcasting LIVE from the store this Friday (25th November), from 10am to 1pm, to officially launch Arighi Bianchi's Christmas Shop and he'll be announcing the winner of the Happy Radio competition – who will receive a gorgeous Arighi Bianchi ViSpring bed worth £5000. Customers can watch the DJs in action as the show goes out live from the shop floor.
For homeowners looking to wow with their decorations this festive season, Arighi's new extended Christmas shop is a must-visit. Located on the ground floor at the flower shop entrance, the treasure trove is stocked to the brim with 2022's festive trends – from stunning silver and glistening gold decorations, to candy cane and gingerbread inspired decorations, beautiful Nordic whites and an impressive selection of gonks.
Lucy Mather, Head of Communications at Arighi Bianchi, said: "We absolutely love Christmas at Arighi Bianchi. As a family business we always want to go that extra mile to make the store experience even more special over the festive period. From our window displays – which always get people talking to our Christmas shop which people travel to from miles around to experience.
"This year is even more special as we have Father Christmas in store with us for the very first time. We've created a stunning backdrop for him to meet and greet local children and would encourage all youngsters in the area to come down. We look forward to welcome as many people as possible into store."
