New clothes shop opens in Burnham in place of former shoe store

A new shop has opened in Burnham-On-Sea this week, filling a prime High Street location that has been vacant for over nine months.

Weston businessman Asif Ghani has taken over the former Shickle Shoes shop to open a new fashion store called Aniqa.

Mr Ghani, pictured, told "We already have a very successful store in the centre of Weston and wanted to expand, so coming to Burnham seemed a logical step."

"We have had a good response so far and hope that our range of jewellery, clothes and fashion accessories adds some more choice to the High Street."

A spokesman for Burnham-On-Sea Chamber of Trade this week welcomed the news that a vacant store has been occupied, adding that there are now very few empty premises in the town centre.

Shickle Shoes closed last November, as reported here, after operating in Burnham High Street since 1966. The estate agents had been trying to find a new leaseholder ever since.
