Run by Preston’s Business Improvement District the winning shop gets £500 to spend for their staff at a city centre venue.

Chair of Preston’s City Retail Forum and manager of St George’s Shopping Centre, Andrew Stringer said: “This competition is about more than just making a nice looking display; it’s about retailers coming together in a healthy competition and encouraging the city’s customers to look a little more closely at shops and businesses that they might not ordinarily visit.”

Kevin Barrett, operations officer from Preston BID who co-ordinate the City Retail Forum said: “Many of the city’s favourite retailers are now represented on the forum, giving us a great base from which to continually work together to sustain and improve Preston’s offer. We’re looking forward to seeing the creativity of our colleagues and encourage the people of Preston and beyond, to vote for their favourite store.”

Anyone can vote either by scanning a poster in any of the shop windows of stores taking part or by visiting an online survey.

The online vote is due to close by end of play on Tuesday 23 September.
