The second series of Mary Queen of Shops, in which five more independent retailers will be overhauled by retail guru Mary Portas, will air at 9pm on BBC2 on Monday.
Plus-size women’s retailer Blinkz in Ascot in Berkshire will be the subject of the first episode. In episode two, Portas will hit the streets of Cardiff to check out the competition with Kelvin Evans, owner of menswear business Floyds.
The third episode focuses on Manchester menswear store Burts, a family business which has traded for 112 years. South London premium indie Rumplestiltskin gets a revamp and a name change to Balham Bou in episode four.
York womenswear boutique Selkie is the subject of the fifth episode. The two-year-old store had been trading for two years, but its bizarre product mix was not doing it justice. Owner Lucy Weller said: “The business is healthier now and the show made me see the error of my disorganised ways.”
The sixth show sees Portas revisiting Brighton’s JuJu and Homeboy in Doncaster from series one. See more images of the stores involved below.
