The doors officially opened earlier this month on Enniscorthy town's newest business.

Petite Cherie is a clothes shop, operated by Jacqueline Warren, which stocks an extensive range of items specifically aimed at children aged from newborn to 12-years-of-age.

Located at 21 Rafter Street, the store was packed for the opening and since the doors opened trade has been very positive with very positive feedback received from customers.

Speaking to this newspaper Ms Warren said she saw a gap in the market for such an enterprise and decided to 'give it a go'.

Ms Warren is well known in Enniscorthy and having worked in a local estate agents after leaving school she spent eleven years working in banking.

She left that job a year-and-a-half ago and then decided to set up her own business.

'I have always wanted to open a shop and I decided to go for it because I saw a market there,' she said.

Petite Cherie stocks clothes from the reputable Name It label.

In addition to the clothes the shop also stocks a wide range of gifts aimed specifically at events like Christenings in addition to other gifts and items such as bags, umbrellas and lunch boxes.

For the opening event customers were able to avail of special offers and there was a great positive vibe to the day with sweets and balloons proving very popular with children in attendance.

Ms Warren's sister, Debbie, works alongside her in the store and anyone wishing to find out more about the range of clothes in stock can do so by contacting Ms Warren directly on 053 9239179.
