Share this article

A COMPANY which offers an organic alternative to standard pedicures has opened its second store in Sheffield.

Appy Feet uses Garra Rufa fish, swimming in a foot bath, to remove dead skin from customers' feet and has added a store at Crystal Peak to its existing operation in Meadowhall.

Company founder, Christina Wright, from Eckington, said: "I am thrilled to be opening a second store in Sheffield, where Appy Feet first opened. It's very exciting to come back here and be opening a second store after a whirlwind year."

Appy Feet now has 13 stores in locations which include Manchester, Leeds, York, Derby, Nottingham, Gateshead, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, Chester and Preston.

The Eckington Business Centre company plans to open a further 15 stores and is seeking franchisees to open stores.

Christina Wright brought the concept to the UK after experiencing it while holidaying in Japan.
