OUR 2022 RETAIL WINNER
"What an experience I had with Shop Idol! From getting picked for the top 25 to then going to London and conquering Britain. What an achievement to take with me in the future. Shop Idol will open a lot of opportunities for me in the future. The trophy is in my cabinet alongside my other achievements that I have had in my career but this one is by far the biggest.
I would recommend everyone that wants to come out of their bubble and show what their worth and come forward for Shop Idol 2023. It will be a life changing opportunity to go and show what you are made off."
