Window winner: MoveHome Estate Agents, Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9.

 

Congratulations to MoveHome Estate Agents on Drumcondra Road which has scooped a gong for Best Shopfront in Dublin City Council’s 2016 annual awards. It’s the first time an estate agency has won the prize which isn’t surprising given the rather mundane nature of the most agency’s displays. MoveHome won the award for its “drop in for a cuppa” themed window. The display consisted of 250 tea cups, recycled from houses the company sold throughout this year, with 20 novelty teapots in the shape of houses and cottages. Ronan Crinion, MoveHome’s managing director says, “We try and not cover the window completely with property brochures, like our competitors do. A good window display has the potential to draw in passersby and turn them into customers.”

The agency’s current window is filled with houses and churches and is getting plenty of eyeballs. Apparently 30,000 cars drive by each day.
