Woolworths is delighted to announce the launch of a new and improved party and fancy dress zone at Woolworths.co.uk. This new zone features a host of new products together with improved navigation, which will make products even easier for customers to find.

Rolled out in time for the Royal wedding, this new section features a wide range of fancy dress costumes, with over 2000 different items to choose from. Customers can choose from either adult or children's costume and browse products by gender, character and size, which makes finding their desired costume quick and easy. The Liverpool-based retailer is also selling costumes for babies and even some for dogs.

This new range of costumers includes a wide range of popular characters and themes, including Ben 10, Disney Princesses, Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Toy Story, together with old favourites such as Cowboys and Indians. The adult range of costumes features decade- themed outfits, together with TV and film themes such as Baywatch, Disney, Grease, Scooby Doo, Thunderbirds and popular horror movie characters such as the Billy puppet from the Saw movies.

In addition to fancy dress costumes, the site also offers party ideas specifically aimed at boys, girls and adults to make it easier to plan a suitable party for whoever the guests may be. Each page lists all the themes, accessories and fancy dress costumes that may be appropriate depending on the age group and the gender of the guests.

Woolworths also offers a range of party decorations, balloons, ribbons, helium balloons, party invitations, tableware, party bags and boxes, games, prizes, confetti, party poppers, piñatas and even Chinese sky lanterns.

This is the latest in a series of preparations Woolworths.co.uk is making for the Royal Wedding. The site has already launched a complete Royal Wedding section and has reported strong sales of goods, including its bestseller, a 6ft cardboard cut-out of the happy couple. Woolworths is anticipating strong demand for fancy dress costumes and party products, as many people organise last-minute parties for the event on 29th April.
