Chosen By Jessica – 1st place Christmas in Colne 2019 – Window Dressing Competition
Chosen by Jessica was selected for first place in the Christmas In Colne window dressing competition and traders all over town agree that it’s very impressive display. The Christmas tree display in the entrance hall of Norway house was a joint effort by Chosen By Jessica and Plan-it Opticians.
We popped into Chosen by Jessica to talk to the staff, but they were way too busy with customers … so didn’t disturb them & instead settled for a few more Christmas photo’s inside the shop!

Back in the ‘golden days’ of the Co-op you’d be looking at the Co-operative Furniture Department. The Co-op itself has been subject to some attention recently, as the last Co-operative shop in Colne closed on Sat 23rd Dec 2019. That was a hugely sad day in the town’s history, as the Co-op has featured heavily in Colne since around 1848. Back in the day, the Co-op was a massive operation
