Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A HAIR­DRESSER is cel­e­brat­ing 30 years at the same sa­lon.

Gary Wil­liams, who owns ‘Hair By Gary Wil­liams Ltd’ on Mill Lane, has been hair­dress­ing for more than 47 years.

He moved to the Mill Street premises in July 1985, af­ter set­ting up his first busi­ness on Church­wall­gate in 1973, with his wife Lesley work­ing along­side him.

Grand­fa­ther of three Gary – with the fam­ily’s new­est ad­di­tion Matilda ar­riv­ing just three weeks ago – said he loves work­ing and said the busi­ness’ longevity is thanks to loyal cus­tomers. He said: I still en­joy it. “It’s changed a lot as you could imag­ine, perming is com­ing back into fash­ion with some of the younger ones now.”

Gary, 60, who lives in Bro­ken Cross and em­ploys another stylist, Denise Hayes, said: “I just want to say thank you to all my loyal cus­tomers. It’s a real achieve­ment be­ing in the same shop for 30 years.”

He added: “I have some very loyal cus­tomers. My aun­tie Mar­ian Down­hill is my old­est cus­tomer – she’s 93 and has been com­ing to me since I was 18, but I think that’s partly due to fam­ily loy­alty too.”

Hair by Gary Wil­liams Ltd, on Mill lane, is open Tues­days to Satur­days.
