Counting Down to Christmas!

16th December 2011

Here at The Pole Company we are all looking forward to Christmas, but with just over a week to go there are lots of things still to do here!

We are finishing both our Museum and Walcot House Sales next wednesday.  For more information please look at our previous blogs for Museum here or for Walcot House here.  This is a great saving for anyone looking for a designer curtain pole at extremely reasonable prices.  Again we emphasise that any purchases made for these sales will be delivered for Museum at a next day delivery option and Walcot House deliveries will most likely be post Christmas, but all at sale prices if ordered before the 21st!  This is not an opportunity to miss out on!

We highlighted our portiere rods as our pick of the Christmas month which you can read about here or even see our online selection here!  A nice winter warmer perfect for keeping out the draft this Christmas and delivered next day with stock in mind.

Opening hours and delivery times for the Christmas period were mentioned very recently but just in case you missed that one here it is again. We like to keep you the customer up to date on our delivery times to help ensure a smooth transaction with all your purchases!

Also you may have noticed a new section pop up recently on our website…’poles only section‘….see if you can find it but we will be announcing it officially in the new year!

So thats it for us at TPC for this week we’ll be back next week with a few more announcements and blogs.  Have a great weekend!  For those of you Christmas shopping we salute you and good luck!  For those who have already done it, how very organised of you!  and for those not buying anything for anyone well lets just say you should have watched a Christmas Carol when you were younger…

Thanks for reading, as always look at our Facebook and Twitter for little extras, still grinch season see what he’s been up to this week.


The Pole Company Winter Season!

Winter Wonderland at The Pole Company!



6th December 2011

Its that time of year where Jingle Bells are in the air, trees have invaded homes across the country and mince pies shares have risen dramatically.   At The Pole Company we’ve even been to Homebase for their Christmas tree special, so take a look at our decorations if you’re in Bath over the next few weeks!

But with Christmas all around us, The Grinch is unfortunately moving into The Pole Company for the next couple of weeks.   So you may know the Dr Suess story of the Grinch, the Green imp that that tried to steal Christmas, but what does his presence at The Pole Company mean?   Well with Christmas period comes the inevitable disruptions and delays in delivery for some of our products.

However the delay does vary across the products, so The Grinch is being kept at bay for now.    To examine the degrees of  delay here a few examples to explain our delivery problems; some brands such as Out of The Fire designs will be difficult to get this side of Christmas due to the handcrafted nature of the poles.   Then there are a couple of brands who may be able to squeeze in a few orders before Christmas such as Alison Davies and Decotec, this is time dependent and orders should be made sooner than later! But Hallis Hudson products are still able to give you next day delivery right up until we close for Christmas, subject to Stock availability.

The best thing to do is contact us if you want anything for Christmas! If you give us a ring or email, we’ll be able to give you an honest answer about the chances of getting your curtain pole, curtain accessory, or anything else before Christmas!

The Pole Company itself closes for Christmas 21/12/2011 this year, so not long! But up until this point we will be taking calls right up until 5pm that day. Our internet Sales for Museum and Walcot House curtain poles will run up until 5pm that day too, although these products may be delivered in the New Year (at Sale prices if ordered before the closing date), for more information on the curtain pole sales take a look at a previous blog here.

Fantastic Service from the The Pole Company

Don't fret we will do our best to make sure your purchases get to you for Christmas!

Having The Grinch in shop doesn’t mean we want customers to worry, we like to be honest with our customers and let them know about any changes as soon as we do.   We’ve managed to get him upstairs for now so still feel safe to visit!  To see our Grinch theme in action why not take a look at our Facebook page? Or how about our Twitter profile? Both containing completely exclusive daily updates for our fans only! Thanks for reading.
