Christmas Window Display Competition

And we have a winner!

The voting to crown the best dressed shop window in Hartlepool has closed, the votes have been counted and the results are in. But before we announce the worthy winner of the Christmas Window Display Competition, we'd like to say a big thank you to some important people.

Without Hartlepool Borough Council and Love Hartlepool it wouldn't have been possible for us to launch the Shop Hartlepool Christmas Campaign to spread some Christmas cheer this year. Thank you for supporting and funding the Shop Hartlepool initiative.

Thank you to everyone who liked, commented or shared any of our Shop Hartlepool Christmas Advent posts throughout December. The whole Shop Hartlepool Team would personally like to thank you for getting behind the campaign and showing your love. It makes it possible for us to continue our work supporting all the fantastic businesses we know Hartlepool has to offer.

And, last but not least, thank you to all the businesses who entered the competition and had some festive fun for all of Hartlepool to enjoy. Twenty eight fantastic local businesses signed up to take part in our Christmas Window Competition. We hope you all enjoying getting involved with the competition and trail, it quite literally wouldn't have been possible without you!

Now let's get to the important part shall we?

And The Winner Is...

The Simple Weigh

Shop Hartlepool are proud to announce the winner of the Christmas Window Display Competition, as crowned by the people of Hartlepool, is The Simple Weigh.

Their tale of the Hartlepool Grinch and the Monkey won over voters. The Monkey made a stand to save the environment and help reduce plastic waste, just like the wonderful folks at The Simple Weigh, whose Zero Waste policy is a big hit with local shoppers. We think this family run store deserves a gold star for imagination.

With their eye-catching, cheeky Grinch trying to steal the star off their Christmas tree, and the Monkey having none of it, we hope you agree that they went all out with the festive cheer and put together a stunning display. Well done!

Based in the centre of town, The Simple Weigh offer a great alternative to everyday products packaged in plastic. The eco-friendly ethos also sees them stocking locally grown or produced products, which is what Shop Hartlepool is all about.

It is great to see a small local business thriving, while on a mission to to reduce waste, promote local and ultimately protect the environment. If you haven't paid them a visit, pop down to their Roker Street store and you are guaranteed to receive a friendly welcome!
