21st Was the Top Milestone Birthday in June

Data released from the Birthday Mailings marketing service for bars, restaurants and salons shows that a 21st was the most common major ‘milestone’ birthday to be celebrated in the UK last month.

June 2011 saw 21,826 21st birthdays out of a total 116,921 milestone birthdays such as a 40th, 60th and so on.

Consumers about to celebrate a birthday are an ideal market for pampering services such as health and beauty salons or clothes retailers. A birthday celebration also represents a good opportunity for restaurants, bars and leisure businesses.

The Birthday Mailings service identifies consumers the month before a major birthday then provides these leads for a chosen postcode area.
