Stocking beautiful ranges of clothing, including Robell, Masai and Scottish brand, Marble, Karen B opened 14 years ago on Brook Street, Broughty Ferry.
Two years after it started trading, it was bought over by Ann Annandale, who cemented the store as a main staple in the community.
Ann handpicks everything that is on the rails of the shop and all her products are exclusive, so they won’t be found within five miles of the boutique.
With the success of KarenB, Ann has recently opened a sister shop out in Arbroath’s West Port, which has already been attracting visitors from far and wide.
Ann says: “Customer interaction is key to my business. It’s so satisfying when customers return to my shops and I now know a lot of them personally.
“I love what I do and see the running of the shops as a passion and not work.
I’m so lucky to have a great team of staff with the same values and principals as me meaning that customers can come in with confidence knowing we’re all here to offer a fabulous personal shopping experience.”
You can call Ann at KarenB on 01382 774446, or visit the shop’s Facebook page for more information.
