Funky new manager at Welwyn Garden City clothes shop

A CLOTHES shop for children is under new management in WGC.

WATCHING your children grow up is supposed to be a happy time – but it’s certainly not from a financial perspective.

Finding clothes to fit your ever-expanding flock is a massive drain on your wallet, not helped by some of the extortionate prices slapped on to designer labels by some stores.

But after coming under new management, a shop in WGC is promising an altogether easier shopping experience for you, your children, and your pocket.

Funky Joe in Fretherne Road has been taken over by veteran retailer Marian Deverell – and she wants everyone in town to know things have changed in the store.
