For the second year running, this festive period saw Northampton town centre Business Improvement District (BID) run its Christmas Windows Competition that challenged the town's shops and businesses to dress their shop fronts festive-style.
And for the second time in a row, the overall winner was Vintage Guru on St Giles Street, which scooped an impressive 618 votes.
Second place, and scooping the top award for the Bridge Street, College Street and Gold Street area was Xchange 4 Cash, which scooped 595 votes with help from its live shop window Santa.
People have been voting for their favourite windows for the last few weeks by liking individual images in the BID’s Facebook album.
Voting closed at 9am on 17 December and the winning businesses have now been told the good news.
Mark Mullen, Operations Manager of Northampton town centre BID, said: “Congratulations to all our winners and a huge thank you to all the businesses that took part. Our town centre looks truly magical and festive this Christmas and much of this is thanks to the hard work of our resident businesses who have worked hard to create fun, festive shop fronts for shoppers to enjoy.”
