Bring­ing home the spirit of Christ­mas

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Neil and Joan Gibb have al­ways been ‘‘into’’ Christ­mas.

Their business, Di­a­mond Jew­ellers, on Arawa St, has been decked out in Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions for weeks.

They say they al­ways dec­o­rate their business and they make sure to get a start on the fes­tive dec­o­ra­tions early.

‘‘ It just makes such a lovely at­mos­phere,’’ Neil says of the Christ­mas theme.

The business tends to support a num­ber of oc­ca­sions through­out the year by dec­o­rat­ing their store in a theme.

‘‘But Christ­mas spe­cial, es­pe­cially dren,’’ Neil said.

Both Neil and Joan, along with their cus­tomers, get a lot of en­joy­ment out of the dec­o­ra­tions.

The store, which was re­cently an­nounced as the best kept shop in Mata­mata, for the third year in time is for the very chil- a row, en­cour­ages other busi­nesses in town to get into the Christ­mas spirit.

‘‘Christ­mas is a time for re­joic­ing,’’ Neil said.
