Media Release: Duvet sales rocket as Britain braced for 30 hours of snow


FUELLED by the prediction of more cold weather and the fear that heating systems could fail under pressure, The Duvet and Pillow Warehouse (DAPW) is seeing customers rushing to buy their warmest duvets.

Jonathan Attwood, a spokesperson for, said: “Our customers are rushing to buy our thickest duvets. Many have heard warnings of plummeting temperatures and heating failures due to the excessive cold and want to be prepared.”

Attwood also said that “some savvy customers have realised that by having a thicker duvet they can turn their heating right down at night and still stay warm, thus saving on heating bills but avoiding freezing pipes”.

Matthew Bateman, managing director of Home Services at British Gas, said: “Obviously, when the weather is colder boilers are on for longer and working harder and therefore there are more that break down.”

What’s more, with the AA urging drivers to stay at home, Britons are turning to the internet and sites like to order bulky items – such as duvets or mattresses – to be delivered to their homes without having to risk travelling.

With many schools closed due to the snow and children staying at home, parents and guardians may also be looking for a way to keep their little ones warmer. Snuggling under a duvet in front of the telly with warm tea and popcorn is a great way for families to while away the hours during the colder months of the year.

DAPW is an exclusively online retailer which offers a vast range of mattresses and soft furnishings for the home, from towels and bed linen to duck down duvets and memory foam pillows.

Other products in stock which may offer the whole family some much-appreciated warmth during this cold spell are wool mattress toppers, cable knit throws and baby blankets.
