With just over a week until the opening of a new children’s fashion boutique The Lincolnite were invited for a sneak peek inside.

The boutique is a one stop shop for kids, currently selling boys and girls fashion from newborn to 14-years-olds via its shop in Retford and website.

The company has employed six staff (both part-time and full-time) to work in the Lincoln store.

This includes fully trained shoe fitters who will work upstairs in the shoe department. The shop will sell shoe brands including Lelli Kelly, Start Rite and Geox.

Around £40,000 has been invested in the store. Investment has also been made on a new website.

The new shop will see owner of Cheeky Monkeys Helen Tonge back in the building she traded in under Janel Shoes between 1999-2012.

She is looking forward to re-opening the Cheeky Monkeys shop in the same unit nearly 20 years to the day since Janel opened.
