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.
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.
There was also the main display studio in the Slough basement, but have no pictures of it.
In November 2021 Harvey Powell made contact with a photo an press cutting about his mother, Jacqueline Eaton who was a 19 year old display artist at the Uxbridge Store. She won a competition to name the "Traffic Lights Boutique". See Traffic Lights Boutique at Suters
