News: Bitter Sweet Boutique opens in Rotherham town centre


Bitter Sweet Boutique is the latest independent retailer to open in Rotherham town centre.

Specialising in vintage furniture and individual accessories, the boutique on Moorgate Street is seen as a major boost for the town centre offering everything from dressing tables and mirrors to photo frames and trinkets.

Owner Laura Bullock is excited about her new venture and is confident that she has something Rotherham shoppers will want to buy.

She said: "The furniture and accessories I'm stocking are individual pieces, shoppers can furnish their homes and be confident that they will have something different to their friends and neighbours.

"It's great to be located nearby the independent businesses in Imperial Buildings as, collectively, we are appealing to a new type of shopper who want something different to what's available in clone shopping malls and retail parks."

Bitter Sweet Boutique has benefited from support from Rotherham Council as part of its Business Vitality Grants Scheme that is part of a drive to improve the range of shops and reduce the number of empty units in the town.

Bernadette Rushton, Retail Investment Manager at Rotherham Council, said: "Rotherham town centre continues to grow and the shopping offer gets stronger with each month.

"The grants scheme is all about delivering the products and services that our shoppers told us were missing and Bitter Sweet Boutique is a great example of a local entrepreneur identifying a gap in the market and giving customers even more reason to visit the town."

Grants are still available and provide specialist shopkeepers with up to 50% of the rental costs in year one and 25% in year two, as well as support towards shopfitting costs.
