News: Fashion boutique opening in Rotherham town centre


Women's fashion boutique, Boo is set open in Rotherham town centre this month.

Boo becomes the latest business to breathe new life into one of the flagship projects for Rotherham's Renaissance Programme – the newly-restored Imperial Buildings. It joins The Jeweller's Exchange, and women's clothing and accessories boutique, Yella Brick Road.

It is also the latest retail business to benefit from Rotherham Borough Council's successful business vitality rental and fit-out grants.

Owner Michelle Black said: "I'm so thrilled to be joining the arcade and having a presence in Rotherham town centre. It's been something I have wanted to do for a while, but the grants helped me take that step. I already have another boutique in Mexborough so I know there is a market there for the clothing I sell."

Expect to see a wide range of high-quality fashion clothing but without the boutique price tag, alongside a range of shoes, accessories, handbags and bespoke jewellery. The first 50 customers will receive a goodie bag from Michelle to celebrate her opening.

Also in the Imperial Buildings, Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance (ROAR) are busy preparing the internal arcade and three units ready to open their arts gallery in March.

Paul Lancaster of Rees Denton, the commercial letting agent for the building, said: "I continue to be enthusiastic about the prospects for this building. I am carrying out regular viewings and I'm currently in detailed discussions with further potential tenants regarding terms. I am excited about the tenant mix that we are attracting and confident that this building will, as a consequence, be a great success."

The council's Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Planning and Transportation, Cllr Gerald Smith, said: "It's great to see this building beginning to achieve our ambitions, with the 116 new apartments in this area now fully let and providing a great customer base for our new Imperial retailers."

Boo boutique is set open on Saturday February 20.
