In our quest to make shops, cafes, restaurants, any businesses on the high street look better, one of the things we feel gets overlooked are opening times.
Some businesses do a professional job, many don’t even have opening signs, its important to communicate with your customers and to do it in a style that suits your particular business.
Here are lots of great ideas for opening times take a look and get inspired.

Morrisons proudly presents… Christmas! The nation’s favourite duo Ant & Dec star alongside a new addition to the family – a singing, dancing gingerbread man called Ginger. A magical world packed with a delicious Christmas feast awaits, so go on… be our guest!
Our second contender for best Christmas TV advert comes from good old M and S who this year are taking JLP head on, they have managed to secure Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Helena Bonham Carter and David Gandy. The ad – which has a fitting tagline of ‘believe in magic and sparkle’ – begins with leggy model Rosie chasing her dog down the street on a cold winter’s night and then having to follow him down a manhole. Cue a nostalgic nod to Alice in Wonderland.
As she stumbles down the (rabbit) hole, she then finds herself at a tea party hosted by the Mad Hatter, aka David Gandy. Red Riding Hood, Aladdin and The Wizard of Oz – which sees Helena take on the role of the wizard – are also emulated in the sparkling Christmas ad, which was shot by London-based agency Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R.
Explaining the idea behind the ad, Marks & Spencer’s business development director Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne said: ‘With this year’s ad we wanted to recapture the magical essence of Christmas that our customers tell us is synonymous with M&S. Magic & Sparkle is an extraordinary franchise, which has always been a firm favourite with customers.
