Display Services - Window and internal promotional displays at Suters Ltd

____________________________________________________________________

The display teams at Slough and Uxbridge stores were an essential part of the marketing of merchandise from the shop in Ledbury High Street onwards. At Uxbridge there was windows space at the front and rear and when the Slough store was rebuilt in the 1960s, there were lots of windows down one side in the arcade next to Milwards Shoes. This space was very much restricted when the new Queensmre shopping centre was established.

As well as organising external window displays, the display teams would be responsible for producing internal promotional displays.

 

 

In February 1977 the article below was in the Slough Observer and was written by Douglas Walter (pictured in 1955) who had been the display manager at Slough for a number of years.

Unfortunately we do not have any further photos of member of the teams in the archives or other names apart from Peter Curry who was one of the display managers until looking after the shopfitting projects in the mid 1970s.
