INDEPENDENT business seems to be booming in Northwich as a new boutique opens its doors ready to welcome the town’s fashionistas.

Just a few months after Abda cultural café opened on Crown Street, there’s a new shop on the same street hoping to boost the regeneration of Northwich.

Described as a ‘ladies and gents clothing shop with a twist’, Bella Boutique opened its first store in Sandbach 14 months ago before deciding to expand into Northwich.

Jonathan Jones, who co-owns business that promises designer inspired pieces and traditional Italian and continental clothing, said: “We’ve been monitoring Northwich for the last six months or so and believe it’s a busy town.

“I think with all the regeneration going on in Northwich, now is the right time for us to move in.”

Jonathan’s passion for fashion is shared by co-owners Natalie Pinch and Christine Jones.

He said: “Between the three of us we’re so passionate about fashion, and just being able to see the smile on someone’s face when they try our clothes on is amazing.

“We’re looking forward to growing our customer base here in Northwich and seeing lots of new faces.”
