Exposure for a shop window in evening

For a picture like this (example)
where the shop front is still illuminated by evening light, what would be the way to go with exposure? I'd like to capture the bright shop window but also the shop front rather than it ending up just dark and featureless. So for one I'd have to make sure it's not too dark at the time, but what about exposure, wide open and short or smaller aperture and longer? The camera is a folder, f3.5 wide open, using Ilford FP4 ISO125 which tolerates -2 to +6 stops exposure, and has noticeable reciprocity failure, according to the blurb.
Thanks all
How does this thing work?
