Why this business was started
We were fed up with paying high prices for bad Christmas trees in Hong Kong and started selling great quality trees directly imported.
If you are one of the many HK residents who cringe at the prices of Christmas trees on offer here, then welcome to the club! To decorate a fabulous fir Christmas tree for the festive season is a great tradition but why oh why it has to come with these price tags, nobody knows.
So we looked into that and it turns out that you can actually offer a beautiful Nordman fir tree for a reasonable price! We teamed up with a Christmas Tree Centre in Northern Germany to bring the Original Christmas Tree back to Hong Kong, The Classic Premium Nordmann firs.
The reason of selling this business
My family and I are relocating to Europe, and I likely won't be able to do this remotely.
What's involved in running this business
We are importing fresh Christmas trees from Germany and sell them along with a limited selection of accessories (lights and stands) that we source in China. The business is highly seasonal and requires about 2 weeks at the beginning of the season to prepare, a bit of online marketing while selling (from September to October / November) and a few intense days of work around the time the goods are distributed by our logistics partner at the beginning of December.
