Fresh start in store for retailer

A FASHION retailer and beauty salon is looking forward to a fresh start in Morpeth after moving into a bigger home.

Lemon and Lime has gone from a unit Sanderson Arcade to a new shop in Newgate Street, which will allow the brand to separate its salon and fashion range and expand with a children’s clothing range called Lemon Squash.

There will also be more room in the store to offer customer refreshments.

Kimberley Sowden, from Lemon and Lime, said: “We’ve loved our time at Sanderson Arcade, it has definitely helped us to establish in Morpeth and we have fabulous loyal customers.

“We can’t wait to show them the new look store in our new location.”

Lemon was based at the Arcade from when the development opened in November 2009. It launched the Lime beauty concept a few months later.

Sanderson Arcade Centre Manager Medi Parry said: “Lemon is a great shop and a really popular name so we’re delighted the company is staying in Morpeth and expanding its range in the town.”

The British designer fashion brand Hobbs is taking the former Lemon unit, which covers 940 sq ft, to create its first stand-alone store.
