Mary Queen of Shops

I have been a huge fan of Mary Portas’ Mary Queen of Shops right from the beginning, so I was very excited when I was asked to be on an episode of her new season. This season Mary takes on a new challenge – to bring her expertise to 6 non-fashion British high street independent stores. I don’t want to give away what happens on the episode, but it was great to be part of it! The new season will air on the BBC in March.  I think it’s quite amazing the influence a TV show can have over the high street. Who wouldn’t want a shop makeover with business advice from Mary Portas?

Check out Mary’s latest project, the Living and Giving Shop, at 34 Raeburn Place, Stockbridge, Edinburgh. Tel: 0131-315 2856,
