Want to get your shop noticed? Then why not get yourself featured as the ACE Shop of the Month! If you think your shop deserves to be showcased in the ACE weekly e-newsletter, as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages, simply tell us what makes your shop special - perhaps a recent refit, eye-catching merchandising or an innovative new product or promotion. Don't forget to include a picture or two and make sure you really show off your shop!
All our monthly winners will be entered into a brand new category in next year's ACE Best Product Awards - SHOP OF THE YEAR. So what are you waiting for?
July Shop of the MonthBALTIC Shop, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art
To tie in with the Artists Award exhibition celebrating emerging artists, the colourful BALTIC Shop's theme is, ‘Everyone Can Be An Artist’. Products include art materials as well as humorous gifts and books aiming to make art more engaging to BALTIC visitors, most of whom aren’t art aficionados. To entice more people into the shop, the team have created an interactive wall where visitors can create their own artworks on a whiteboard and then enter their drawings into a competition to win shop vouchers.
June Shop of the MonthThe Manor Shop, Waddesdon Manor
The Manor Shop has had a complete restyle and features over 100 new products designed in-house and inspired by Waddesdon’s collections. The fabulous central tables reflect the Creatures and Creations exhibition, about Walter Rothschild and his early involvement in the Natural History Museum. Plant collection and animal naming and identification were key themes in merchandise development and buying, resulting in a visually stunning display.
