Home Hardware has announced that Box of Allsorts at Shaftesbury in Dorset has won its annual Christmas Window Dressing Competition.
The high street store stocks homeware, hardware and cookware, along with gardening and DIY products, bird food, pet care, artists’ materials, kits and crafts, stationery, toys and traditional sweets, across three floors.
The runner-up prize was awarded to Danum Home Hardware in the South Yorkshire town of Doncaster.
All Home Hardware retailers were invited to participate in the competition, which was judged by an independent panel, and Home Hardware described the overall standard of entry as ‘exceptionally high’.
