The independent community continues to thrive in Northwich with yet another business opting to start trading in the town.
Crate Gentleman’s Hairdressing, which is located at 2-4 Crown Street, decided to open its doors because of the positive environment in Northwich and the regeneration work taking place, as owner Charles Rose has explained.
“We’ve always loved Cheshire and looked in several towns in the area but we loved the feel of Northwich instantly. There is so much happening in the town at the moment and it is really exciting for Crate to be part of it.
“We think it’s a great time to be opening a new business in the town with all of the expansion plans; the regeneration is exciting!”
Charles brings with him a wealth of experience having managed a flagship salon of a global brand in London, competing in competitions and attending industry events, and hopes to bring an inclusive and relaxing vibe to Northwich’s hairdressing scene.
“Having only just opened this July, my aim is to really become part of the Northwich community. The fact that we have a lounge bar too helps us create a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for all to enjoy whether people are having a hair service with us or not.
“Plus, we’d like to promote that all our Gentlemen’s hair services come with a complimentary refreshment, ranging from an ice cold beer to a fresh coffee or soft drink.”
Obviously, working in Northwich is a little bit different to the fast-paced nature of London, however Charles has thanked the people of the town for helping Crate feel that they’ve settled quickly here in Mid Cheshire.
“The transition has been great, especially as the people of Northwich have been so supportive and friendly. We have been overwhelmed by their kindness and can’t thank you all enough.”
Although Crate is still in its infancy, Charles has one eye on the future and hopes that they can grow alongside other retailers in the town.
“I’m looking forward to taking Crate forward and expanding our employee count over the coming months. We don’t want to be seen as a competitor to existing salons either as we believe that working together is what makes the town such a great place to be.”
