Young entrepreneur bucks high street trend
A young entrepreneur is bucking the high street trend by expanding her business.
Cherie Bacon opened her new venture, The Shoe Boutique, next door to her current clothes shop, Le Cherie Boutique, in Ongar on Monday.
Miss Bacon, 23, will run the shop with partner Alan Turpin, 28, and is already setting her sights on further expansion in Essex.
She said: “Some of the lines completely sold out, even on the first day.”
The business in High Road has also attracted some local celebrities, with The only way is Essex stars Lauren Goodger and Abigail Clarke both regular customers.
