HUNDREDS of eager shoppers got the first taste of Christmas at Bents.

The garden and home store in Glazebury revealed its themed displays for 2019 on Wednesday afternoon – having kept them under wraps for the past 10 weeks.

Hundreds of customers visited the store for the occasion and followed Father Christmas – who made a special guest appearance for the event – into this year’s magical wonderland.

Matthew Bent, managing director, said: “Christmas has been a part of our family business for as long as I can remember and it never loses any of its charm or excitement, especially when we’re surrounded by such beautiful and inspirational displays.

“We have our very own team of set designers and joiners who work together to create our magical scenes and once again they have delivered another fantastic wonderland for our customers to enjoy.”

Bents were joined for the occasion by the Cllr Maureen Creaghan, deputy Mayor of Warrington, who helped with the opening, and Dan Jillings from Bents’ Charity of the Year, Once Upon a Smile who drew the raffle to win a beautiful Christmas hamper.


Bents 2019 centrepiece, Make it Magical, is a stunning combination of blush pink, silver and white decorations and is just one of many expertly designed show-stoppers, which are full of inspiration and ready to be re-created at home.
