I posted in February about, TV personality and retail guru, Mary Portas coming to Lightwater to remodel Lightwater Homecare, our own hardware and DIY store, for her Mary Queen of Shops TV programme
I’m not sure when the programme about Lightwater is due for airing, but it’s sure to be interesting. The business was renamed The Fix It Factory, and now three months later it’s reverted to its original name – Lightwater Homecare. One thing that has stayed the same is the bright red colour of the sign, and the size of the sign. So something in Mary’s arguments must had stuck with the owners.
Personally I’d prefer white lettering on the sign rather than black, it’s easier to read. Compare this picture to the one in my earlier post to see.
While Mary Portas was in Lightwater she visited Duffy’s Budgens and gave them a high rating, justly deserved in my opinion.
