Smart plans for shop site

Have your say

A CUSTOM print clothing shop is the latest to move into a unit at the Frenchgate Centre in Doncaster town centre.

Smarty Pants specialises in custom printing for clothing and accessories for fancy dress.

Its owner, Claire Locke, said she is looking forward to working at the centre.

“The Frenchgate Shopping Centre is a vibrant place with great footfall,” she said. “It was the perfect place to open and I’m confident we will be successful here.”

Smarty Pants originally started with a children’s range, some of which eventually went on to be used in Mothercare.

Claire reckons she knows exactly what it takes to start up an independent business, having remortgaged her home five years ago to raise the capital to start Smarty Pants.
