A BOUTIQUE has opened next to the picturesque Grand Union Canal in Berkhamsted.

MacKenzie and Mason swung open its doors in Lower Kings Road late last month, selling perfumes, aftershave, watches, sunglasses, scarves, handbags and more.

Owner Linda O’Connor said: “The town is lovely and we have received great feedback.

“But people have been a bit slow in buying. Maybe they are waiting to get to know us first.

“The shop is a little out of the way – that’s its only downfall.

“I was going to try and go in the High Street, but there were not any shops there at the time.”

Linda has run her business over the internet for the past two years, but this is her first shop. She chose to set it up in Berkhamsted because of its passion for independent shops.
