After 26 years Marisa Pastore, the owner of long established ladies fashion boutique Marisa Helene,decided that major refurbishment was required.
Marisa appointed Gail Knox from the local shop fitting and design agency Retro 3 to carry out all the work. The shop in Friday Street, Leighton, was stripped back to its bare bones and rebuilt from the inside out. The transformation was completed in seven days .
Marisa was so pleased with the results that she wanted to show off the new shop and celebrate the relaunch with more than 50 customers and friends including former Brookside soap star Ann-Marie Davies who played Katrina.
Marisa said: “I am very proud to have traded in Leighton Buzzard for over 26 years. The new shop represents a huge investment by me in the long term future of Marisa Helene and shows how confident I am that Leighton Buzzard will continue to be a great place for ladies fashion for many years to come.”
