Mary Portas is returning to TV screens to help small businesses - but this time Buckingham is targeted.

The 54-year-old, who has helped dozens of struggling shops over six series since Mary Queen of Shops aired in 2007, will begin filming for Channel 4 this summer.

But for the first time, independent retailers in Buckingham and surrounding areas are in with a shot of featuring.

The show’s producers are currently looking for businesses which are after fresh ideas of how to bring in more customers and more money.

Any retailers which think it could benefit should email or call 02032275987.
