Our client continues to offer a very good retail side of the business which still attracts a very loyal customer base.
There is a business website included in the sale which details the seasonal offers and combination offers available. The website also includes the testimonials of many happy customers -‘I found this place after a suggestion from a nearby salon that was fully booked, and I am so glad I went! It can be daunting going to a new salon and I wasn't sure what to expect given that there wasn't much on social media, but Amy (hair stylist) was an absolute pleasure. Not only did she accommodate my last minute appointment change with no complaints, but she also did an incredible job with my feed-in ponytail braids. To top it all off, she was the loveliest person to talk to and I am so glad we crossed paths. You could tell how loved the staff are locally by the people who came in to chat with them while I got my hair done! Looking forward to coming to the salon’‘Lovely place, they really took care of my hair, i'm normally tender headed, but the stylist was really gentle, very affordable. Beauty Box will definitely be my regular hairdresser’
Our client admits the business is now being run to suit with a reduced staffing team now in place due to the Covid pandemic.
