What to Watch: Mary Queen of Shops
Mary Queen of Shops
Wednesdays 9:00pm EST BBCA
(check your local listings for re-broadcasting)
This show features Mary Portas, who's well known for her work in the Retail industry, working with small boutiques owners to help them revitalize their poorly performing shops in the UK. Unlike, all the other fashionista shows, I like this one because it's business based but also has plenty of high-end fashion to show. Mary has a no nonsense approach, she goes into the shops and tell them how it is which doesn't always mesh well with those she's trying to help, but she is there to help them turn their businesses around.
