A MALTON shop is keeping it in the family when its new owner takes over next week.

Claire Turnbull is the new owner of the Frock Exchange in Saville Street, which was previously owned by her husband’s aunt.

The 27-year-old lives in Sinnington on the family-run dairy farm, with husband Adam and son Oliver, who is 19 months. Claire previously worked at The Dental Health Practice in Malton.

She said: “Lorraine, who had the Frock Exchange previously, is Adam’s auntie and I felt I was ready for a change in career with having Oliver, so decided to step in and take it over. Future plans for the shop continue as Lorraine has previously done, selling second-hand designer clothes shoes and accessories at affordable prices, but also doing hat and fascinator hire. I am looking forward to welcoming present clients, as well as new ones.”

An opening day celebration will take place on Monday, July 9, from noon to 8pm.
