Los Angeles, CA (CNS) – British TV host Mary Portas is taking her shopping finds to the U.S. The retail guru’s “tough love” show, “Mary Queen of Shops,” is premiering on BBC America in October.
The weekly show features Portas as she shares tricks and tips she has learned over the years at the leader edge of fashion retailing. She gives the ultimate insider’s guide on how to get the most out of shops and shopping as she troubleshoots her way around the U.K. to help turn around struggling fashion boutiques.
