IN BUSINESS: Salon celebrates 25; Pool company opens in Wheatfield

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.

  • SUN LIFE Farms 1 040614.jpg NIAGARA COUNTY: Effort to get fresh food to the needy is energized by new venture.

    Tom Tower thinks it's a crime to throw away good food. The gentleman farmer from Youngstown is noted for his passion for agricultural craftsmanship, so seeing his carefully grown produce lying wasted in the field causes him great distress. He was one of the first farmers in the region to bring his apples by the truckload to the Western New York Food Bank. It was pure logic and generosity that prompted him to do so, but when the food bank received some state money to buy fresh produce, Tower and Justin Guerin, food bank director, worked out a deal. One month would be a donation, the next month, the bank would pay a fair price for the apples.
