THE WINNER of the first Leith Shop Idol has been announced as M1 Sandwich Shop on Easter Road.
The shop was presented with the £3000 prize yesterday for a display that judges described as having “a professional, clean, crisp look”.
Coming a close second was Flux on Bernard Street, which created a rose-themed display. In third place was The Doo’cot St Columba’s Hospice, on Leith Walk, which was one of the public’s favourites in the vote on Facebook.
Councillor Tom Buchanan, economic development convener, said: “I have been very impressed by the quality of window displays across Leith.
“This is the start of a process which will continue to raise the profile of all of Edinburgh’s town centres so they become known as must-visit destinations.”
