Collared pet shop, Pantiles Cameras and the Trevor Mottram kitchenware store all saw their interiors revamped by pairs of designers who were given two days to come up with a new look for the businesses.
The programme aired yesterday, although it was filmed between lockdowns in September.
Alan Wood and his wife Sarah bought Trevor Mottram's store from Sarah's uncle in 2000.
The shop presented the biggest challenge to the designers because of the volume of stock on display.
Because the premises were larger than the other two, the designers revamped only half the store to make the competition between the teams equal, but Mr Wood said he and his wife were delighted with the result.
Mr Wood said: "We were totally happy. The part of the shop they did hadn't been touched since 1993, so it was dire need of refreshing."
He said: "We've stuck with their design exactly and haven't altered a thing."
The store had only a few months of trading after the revamp before lockdown forced its closure but Mr Wood believes the re-design did increase business.
He said: "We were limiting the numbers in the shop because of social distancing, but we were often full."
David Podbury, owner of Pantiles Cameras, had a more measured approach.
He said: "What they did was a bit like a set. It was not very durable, and not very secure.
"However, it was much brighter and more open.
"I wouldn't have done it myself, but was it better? Definitely."
Ahead of the project, the BBC promised all three shops it would restore their businesses to how they were before if the owners didn't like the changes.
Mr Podbury had them back for two or three days after the show to "make it a bit more workable" - but he's stuck with the overall design.
The owners of Collared could not be reached for comment.
