Niagara Gazette — A pair of beauty salon owners are looking to thank their customers and supporters during a 25th anniversary celebration today at Pizazz Hair Design, 8962 Porter Road.
Lori Summerson and Mary Hayes opened the doors of Pizazz to the public for the first time in 1988. Since then they have built up a loyal clientele, which they believe is due to their reputation for good service.
“It’s quite an accomplishment, considering many salons don’t make it that long,” Summerson said. “We’re looking to the future. We’d like to get more stylists in and keep growing.”
The ladies of Pizazz had a customer appreciation event on Monday to show gratitude to all of the people that have helped them out along the way.
“It was very successful,” Summerson said. “Thanks to all of our clients for participating and coming out to celebrate our 25th anniversary with us.”
It’s that long awaited time of year again, summer is almost here and many are getting ready to open up that pool.
If the long winter took it’s toll on your pool or you just need to stock up on supplies or make some updates, Wheatfield Pool and Spa recently opened at a new location at 2131 Sawyer Drive, Wheatfield.
Since their beginnings in 2010 as a service and repair business the company has expanded to offer pool and spa chemicals, parts, supplies and more.
“Thing have been going very well since the opening,” said owner Sam Conti. “The weather has been cooperating, we’ve been selling a lot of opening kits now that people are opening their pools.”
Conti added that they are very happy to be operating in Wheatfield, since there are no other pool stores in the area.
Looking for a healthier alternative to smoking? A new store opening at 2440 Military Road might have just what you’re looking for.
Majestic Vapors opened it’s doors on March 22. They offer a complete variety of electronic smoking products and accessories including E-cigarettes, E-pipes and E-cigars among other things.
“Business about doubles each week,” said own Brian Bruke. “We have about 80 flavors to choose from and we let people sample everything before they buy.”
Bruke said word of mouth has been very helpful to his business, saying that people who come in comment on the affordability of the products. Apparently, according to one of his customers, the E-cigs are so much healthier than smoke, that the customer’s insurance company offered to pay for it.
All of the products at Majestic Vapors are available to sample, you can even mix and match flavors to create your own unique blend.
Even better, for their customers’ comfort they have set up a lounge with a 60 inch TV and a couple of couches so they can relax and try out the products.
Now that it looks like there’s a chance the warm weather and clear skies may be here to stay for a while, it might be a good time to get that car all clean and sparkely for the summer.
Quality Buffs Auto Detailing opened for business this spring on the corner of Lockport and Military roads in the Town of Niagara.
