African Clothes Shop opens in Middlesbrough

A new business selling African and European men’s and women’s clothes and accessories has opened in Middlesbrough town centre.

Demada Chic Boutique has launched in Dundas Indoor Market with a range of original African designed and made women’s and men’s outfits, alongside European clothing ranges.

Owner of Demada Chic Boutique, Middlesbrough resident Mama Lydia hopes to bring authentic clothing designs from her own African heritage to the people of Teesside.  She started selling clothes from home and has taken advantage of Dundas Market’s business creation and growth scheme to take the next step by moving to a new location and running her business full time.

She says: “There are very few options to buy genuine African clothing on Teesside, so I expect Demada Chic Boutique will take off.”

Dundas Market Manager David Harris says: “Our enterprise initiative helps entrepreneurs like Mama Lydia test out their business ideas by minimising costs and risks.  We have a limited number of Enterprise Units available, where the rent is as little as £10 per day all in. There is just the rent to pay, no worries about costs for security, utilities and rates.

“Demada Chic Boutique is an excellent addition to the range of independent value for money retailers in Dundas Market and Shopping Centre.”

Further information about units in the Dundas Market is available from Market Manager David Harris on tel. 01642 232552 or by email. david.harris@dundasindoormarket.co.uk.
