Gloucestershire Echo - - BUSINESS -

AN award-win­ning ma­ter­nity wear and baby cloth­ing re­tailer is open­ing a new store in Stroud.

Jojo Ma­man Bebe is open­ing the new 1,205 square foot venue in Stroud’s Five Val­leys shop­ping cen­tre in a prime re­tail unit fronting King Street.

The store is set to open in Septem­ber and is re­cruit­ing for six new jobs.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor and founder Laura Teni­son said: “We are re­ally ex­cited about open­ing in Stroud as we know that lo­cal par­ents are in tune with our deep-seated val­ues.”

She con­tin­ued: “We look for­ward to as­sist­ing ex­pec­tant moth­ers, new par­ents, grand­par­ents and baby gift buy­ers to find ex­actly what they need within a short dis­tance of their homes.

“We hope to be­come em­bed­ded in the com­mu­nity, of­fer­ing ad­vice and

sup­port to our cus­tomers from preg­nancy to pre-school.”

Chel­tenham’s Jojo Ma­man Bebe re­opened un­der­went a com­plete re­fur­bish­ment ear­lier this year.

The store’s open­ing is the first ma­jor an­nounce­ment of a com­pany mov­ing to the town cen­tre de­vel­op­ment since York­shire-based Drans­field Prop­er­ties Ltd em­barked on its £25mil­lion trans­for­ma­tion of the cen­tre.

A Drans­field spokesman said: “Jojo Ma­man Bebe is a great com­pany which we have worked with for many years here at Drans­field Prop­er­ties.

“We are proud to have suc­cess­ful Jojo stores at both our San­der­son Ar­cade de­vel­op­ment in Mor­peth and Fox Val­ley in north Sheffield so we are re­ally pleased to be build­ing on our re­la­tion­ship with the new store at our Five Val­leys de­vel­op­ment in Stroud.

“We are con­fi­dent this will be a great ad­di­tion to the town cen­tre and look for­ward to mak­ing fur­ther an­nounce­ments about new re­tail­ers join­ing the cen­tre in the com­ing weeks.”
