A NEW children's clothing shop is opening on Skipton High Street.

The shop will be in the former Style House Interiors store at the entrance to Jerry Croft.

The premises has been let by Mark Brearley & Company to Lyndsey Sample who currently runs the ladies boutique, Need A New Top (NANT), in Sheep Street.

She said she opened NANT in September last year and is very excited by the new venture to open a second store specifically for children's clothing.

She is hoping to open in the first week in September and it will be called Young NANT Kids Wear and will cater for ages five to 14.

A range of brands will be available with a similar concept to the Sheep Street boutique of 'affordable fashion'.
