In Lerwick’s Town Centre, retailers are having a countdown to Christmas with a difference this year.
Living Lerwick Ltd has organised a large scale advent calendar, where 24 of the retailers display a box in their window. Each retailer can choose how to display their box and the contents to reveal when their day arrives.
Manager of Living Lerwick, Christena Irvine said: “The Christmas trees and the advent calendar really seem to have captured the imagination of the retailers. We’re really happy to see that they are putting a lot of thought in to their box displays. It’s nice to brighten things up and it also shows the personalities of the town centre are up for a bit of fun. The advent calendar means something happens every single day in the town centre in the run up to Christmas. We will be putting up a poll on Facebook so that the public can vote for their favourite advent calendar box display and their favourite decorated Christmas tree.”
