We passed the sprinkler inspection; our elevator inspection is on Monday. (We’ve already fixed the circuit board that blew out.) The salon was originally scheduled to get gas today, but the plumber installed a pipe incorrectly and it has to be moved, so now we should get gas and hot water on Monday.
Salon STX is up and running. We’re now inputting all of the salon’s inventory, setting up our retail displays, and just getting the products up and out. One product we’ll be carrying is Elixr Tonics. These blends can be mixed with sparkling or flat water to create a refreshing, healthy beverage. We’ll be offering this as a drink during all of our services.
I’m really excited about some artwork that’s on order and should arrive in November all the way from Switzerland. It’s actually a gift from my dad to the salon. It’s by an artist named Nicole Hassler, who does artwork using actual OPI lacquer and brushes. (She approached my dad at a tradeshow in Europe). My dad is going to be her U.S. distributor.
Also, we have a soft opening date: Oct. 10.
