A BUSINESS woman is giving a new meaning to window shopping as she opens her first curtain shop.

Denise Mann has opened Scarborough Curtains in Victoria Road.

Having previously run her own alterations shop in Hanover Road for seven years, Mrs Mann is no stranger to the world of business.

She said: “An opportunity arose as I was making curtains for some of the other curtain makers in town and I thought why not take the plunge and do it for myself.

“I now do anything to do with windows. I am really enjoying it, and get a lot of satisfaction from seeing through the whole process; from the customers coming in to the shop to making the curtains, and fitting them.

“I’m really pleased with the shop too. The location is great, and really catches people’s eyes as they drive by.”

The shop also hosts Shades of Blinds.
