The new womenswear store in Spring Bank where you can soon top up your tan while you shop
NEW: The shop only opened on Saturday
By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 9 Aug 2017
An ambitious mother and daughter have opened a chic new women's clothes store on Spring Bank - with ambitious plans to install sunbeds in the shop in the near future.
Dorota Czarnecka, 34, only moved to Hull four years ago so her daughter Klaudia, 16, could get a better education.
And after working in a factory since her move to East Yorkshire, she has now achieved her dream of running her own womenswear store.
Dolce Diva, which has filled a space previously occupied by a newsagents, sells a range of clothes and accessories at rock-bottom prices, with dresses starting from as little as £6.99.
From swimwear to lingerie, handbags to sportswear, there is plenty of stock available and the pair have already received a warm welcome after opening their doors to the public on Saturday.
Miss Czarnecka, who ran a women's clothes store in Poland for 12 years, said: "The first day we opened it was really busy and I think for a lot of our neighbours it was a nice surprise to see a new shop open.
"I am so happy. This has always been my dream."
Although the store has only been open a matter of days, Miss Czarnecka is keen to keep on bringing in more stock with plans to eventually put sunbeds at the back of the shop near the tills.

She said: "We've got a lot of open space at the back of the shop and we think it presents the perfect opportunity to put in some sunbeds.
"But first, we really just want to spread the word that we're open and I think that when people come in and see the quality of our clothes they will want to come again.
"We offer a great selection of clothes at very really reasonable prices which everyone can afford."
Klaudia is due to start a law course at Wilberforce College in east Hull in September, but is determined to help her mum in whatever way she can in between her studies.

She said: "She's always had a shop - ever since I was born and it's so nice to see people already coming back.
"I love working with my mum and being next to her. It means a lot to me to be able to support her in her dream."
Some traders on Spring Bank have recently criticised gangs of drinkers for making their lives a misery on the street.

However, Klaudia said she trusts people on the busy street and that appropriate security measures will be put in place to prevent any break-ins.
She said: "We know that it is a main road but we think that this is the right place to be.
"We are going to have good security and cameras will be installed.
"We are not scared about anything and I believe that people are good and that people will respect and support our new venture."
