Unfortunately, due to the extended lockdown imposed in Leicester, Barrie Stephen Hair will be unable to reopen on Saturday along with other barbershops.
Luckily, Barrie is keeping positive, re-deploying team members and clients to bring further extension to his opening hours in his other locations that, whilst in Leicestershire, fall outside of the boundary for lockdown.
Barrie said, “It was pretty devastating for us as we were just all so pumped up to open across the whole group and of course we have had to cancel thousands of appointments and try to reschedule and accommodate them elsewhere within the business.
“But I’ve got an incredible team and somehow we are managing (my consumption of red wine went up fairly sharply at the weekend!) but I am working hard not to let it dampen my spirits for the rest of the group!”
Elsewhere, to keep business booming and his clients taken care of during lockdown, Barrie has been focusing on online retail, bringing a boost to business while providing his clients with easy access to salon-quality luxury products.
