About Us

At Park, we help thousands of families make their Christmas more affordable. It's the most expensive time of year and we've been helping families like yours spread the cost of Christmas for years!

Park was founded by Peter Johnson in 1967, when his family butchers began inviting people to pay small weekly instalments for food hampers that would be delivered to them on a bicycle, just before Christmas.

The idea of paying for Christmas in advance appealed to many families who would have otherwise struggled to afford their luxuries.

Paying for Christmas in small amounts throughout the year instead of one big lump sum at the end was as popular five decades ago as it is today.

Back then you could only order a small selection of meat and groceries - a world away from the huge range of big brand gift cards, vouchers, gift ideas and hampers available for Christmas 2019. Now, you can get everything you need for Christmas from Park, and you can pay for it by putting a little aside every week or month.

With so many loyal customers returning every year, we're proud to see how much Park has grown. And we're delighted to be able to help so many people plan for Christmas each year.
