Team can’t wait to get back to job

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS - By Rory Sheav­ils

GLAMBOX Hair Stu­dio owner Adele Katzke plans to get back to work “as soon as pos­si­ble”.

The store is gone – and all their equip­ment along with it – but she’s not will­ing to let her clients down.

“We run into our clients all the time and it’s emo­tional for them as well,” she said.

“They’re not just shop­pers, they be­come part of your friend­ship group, your fam­ily.

“It’s not just about the hair, or the nails, or the beauty, it’s about that bond you’ve es­tab­lished with them.”

With of­fers of help com­ing from a num­ber of lo­cal busi­nesses, Ms Katzke said it was “just so beau­ti­ful”.

“But we still need to find out from the shop­ping cen­tre what their plan is be­cause we need to con­sider all our op- tions,” she said.

There are nu­mer­ous other ducks to get in a row as well, with the hair­dressers not just with­out a home but the tools of the trade as well. “None of the hair­dressers have combs, or scis­sors, or hairdry­ers – any­thing,” Ms Katzke said.

“The sup­pli­ers have been won­der­ful. They’re of­fer­ing us ex­tra dis­counts to re­place our equip­ment.”

It’s just a mat­ter of putting the pieces back to­gether.

“We are plan­ning a re­turn, we just need to be pa­tient,” Ms Katzke said.

“We just need to find out ex­actly what’s hap­pen­ing.”

Clients can keep up to date by vis­it­ing the Glambox Hair Stu­dio Face­book page.

The shop land­line num­ber has also now been di­verted to Ms Katzke’s mo­bile.
