Our Story

chas clarkson brothers 1890
Chas Clarkson was founded in 1893 in the UK and then moved to Australia in 1900. The business specialised in ticket writing and point of sale and has continued to service the Retail Industry in one form or another for 120 years! That is experience you can trust. Always quick to adapt to changes in the market, Chas Clarkson took note of the increasing changes in retailing and a reduced demand for its existing range of products and services. In 1990 the Christmas Concepts division was launched by Tim Clarkson, a fourth generation family member. The primary focus of the business is to provide commercial Christmas decorations, Santa's Experiences, and Illumination, Australia wide, to shopping centres, public spaces and other commercial venues. Chas Clarkson Christmas & Illumination is all about creativity, vision and the ability to bring Christmas dreams to life.
