Retail expert Mary Portas is back with a new TV series offering help to independent shops and businesses - and she wants them to be from Falmouth.

Optomen Television, the BAFTA-winning TV production company behind shows such as The Great British Menu and Heston Blumenthal's Feast, will be making the series that will see Mary offer her insight, ideas and expertise on improving the customers' experience.

The show's producers are currently looking for independent retailers in the Falmouth area that could benefit from Mary's help.

They are keen to hear from any business owners or managers who would like fresh ideas to bring customers through the door and put money in the till.

Anyone who feels their business could benefit should email or call 0203 227 5987.
