IN TIME FOR MOTHERS DAY – BEAUTICIANS GET GREEN LIGHT FOR RETAIL SALES
It’s a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day, with businesses in the region being able to offering beauty and personal care products for sale.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the decision will allow spas, nail salons, beauty salons, waxing salons and tanning salons in centres right across our region the chance to open their doors.
“This exemption will give our smaller businesses a real boost, as we start to work our way to the other side of Covid-19.
“Beauticians will be limited to the sales of goods and gift vouchers only, services like waxing, manicures and tanning are not permitted.
“The pre Mother’s Day sale is a big part of their annual profits. It means they can put their ‘open’ sign in the front windows again.
“We’ve already seen the impact of drought and bush fires and this easing of the public health orders will help those who are already doing it tough.
“To ensure the safety of customers and other staff, the operator of the business must ensure that any person who is unwell must not work in the business. Further, they must practise good hygiene and have hand sanitiser available,” Mr Anderson concluded.
Karina Davidson, owner of Ella Bache in Tamworth said the announcement was fantastic news.
“This is really exciting because the sale of gift vouchers for Mother’s Day is huge.
“This is a really exciting piece of new for my business, I can’t wait to help Mother’s Day gift shoppers out,” she said.
