Christmas Window Display

Christmas Window Display

Councillor Tony Dignum, leader of Chichester District Council, has congratulated our independent business who have won recognition for their festive window display. The competition was open to independent businesses that took part in the council’s retail training programme, which was run by IBD Business Advice Group. Businesses were invited to create a Christmas window display using techniques they had learnt from the training. Entries were judged on a range of criteria including: how the products were displayed; the use of space; props and graphics within the display, and the overall appearance of the shop front. The winners were chosen by IBD Business Advice Group and are as follows: Timothy Roe Fine Jewellery – winner of the product based business category for Chichester.

Tim Roe, owner of Timothy Roe Fine Jewellery, said: “We feel fantastic to have been chosen as a winner. Our team worked really hard to design and put together our Christmas window display. We enjoyed the Retail Training Programme and found it really useful, especially learning how to analyse the way our customers look at the displays. “This helped us to determine where to position the products in our display to ensure they can be seen by customers walking by from different directions. We’re really proud of our window display and delighted with the result.”
