The Langport Stores makes national shortlist for best window displays in the country.
The Langport Stores has been shortlisted by SaveTheHighStreet.org for some of the best window displays in the country.
SaveTheHighStreet.org was set up in 2016, with the aim of supporting high streets across the country by empowering local shopkeepers. On the 26th of September this year, they launched their quest to find Britain’s Best Shop Window. The purpose was to celebrate and champion the independent high street businesses across the United Kingdom who go the extra mile with their shop window displays. The first shortlist closed on 26th October 2018.
The standard of entry from all over the country was extremely high and the submissions were fascinating and remarkable. The judges had a tough time choosing their favourites, but we think they did an impressive job. The results are now in!
