Inverness clothing store ready to open its doors

STAFF at a popular Inverness women’s wear shop are among many looking forward to welcoming customers back in person from Monday.
Rouge Boutiques in Castle Street has been closed since the start of the lockdown, with its many loyal customers helping to keep morale up throughout the period.
Owner Tania Kennedy said: “We’ve had lovely messages from people saying ‘we hope you are okay and come out the other side’.”
The business adapted quickly to the new situation, setting up an online clearance shop that helped drive an increase in customers from England and Ireland looking for occasion wear.
They also innovated to carry out virtual bra fittings and made themselves available for general advice, but nothing beats that face to face contact with customers.
“We do genuinely enjoy working with our ladies,” Mrs Kennedy said.
Safety for both customers and staff will be the main priority when the doors are again opened, and the shop has posted full details on Facebook of what customers can expect when visiting from Monday.
The shop will be open from 10am-2pm Monday to Saturday with appointments for occasion wear and lingerie available from 9-9.45am and 2-3.45pm.
