Lymm village centre is constantly changing and through history, many businesses have come and sadly gone. Many of us will have delicious memories of Lymm Bistro and tapas bar above (Treacle beef, anyone?), later Bowdens with tapas bar below. Stephanie’s flower shop, Williamson’s Shoes and Saville Bros amongst others, are all now just a distant memory. Perhaps Lymm’s most-missed business is the iconic George’s Chippy which was on Sandy Lane. There’s no trace of it now; even the building has gone.
Another much-loved Lymm Business, Jessobel Boutique closed its doors in 2019 though the shop remained online and via a series of successful pop-up shops. The lady behind Jessobel is Karen Taylor – and we were delighted to welcome her to our morning studio. You can listen again right here.
After taking a short break from the high street, Karen is excited to launch her new venture – and will shortly be opening the doors to her new fashion boutique, which will feature a wide range of women’s clothing including many options for younger teens too . Ooh Missie opens in Latchford, just across the road from where the Penny Ferry pub and fishing tackle shop used to be – on the 4th November. You can find out more at the Ooh Missie Facebook Page.
The best of luck with your new venture Karen!
