In times of economic uncertainty, it is always encouraging to hear of the opening of new businesses. Regardless of whether they are large undertakings or small local enterprises, the first order of business is to create awareness and gain the support of the local community.
To that end, two new businesses, Cutting Edge hair styling and Sara Yaremko Photography located at 006 Main St., Railway Avenue in Falher held an open house on Friday May 6 from 3pm to 8pm.
Lori Bellefleur, the owner of The Cutting Edge, trained as a hair stylist in Grand Falls, New Brunswick and has worked in the profession for over thirteen years.
“We moved up here for my husband’s job about two years ago and I worked in a salon down the road and just decided to go out on my own,” she said. “I have been open here about a month and it has been going great, keeping steady.
“We do frequent styling mile cards, the more often you come the more benefits you get, you get twenty percent off, and so that helps.”
The Cutting Edge – 780-219-3542 – is open 10 to 5 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and Thursdays 10 to 8pm.
Sara Yaremko used to run her photography studio from her home but the business out grew the space. She now has her studio also at 006 Main St. Railway Avenue.
Yaremko, who has an established reputation as a photographer, covers weddings, children’s photographs, family portraits, birthdays, graduation and any number of occasions that people want a tasteful, esthetically pleasing and well-realized photographic record.
As she states on her Facebook Page: “I believe everyone should have beautiful memories. I capture those special moments in your life with photography.”
Sara Yaremko Photography is by appointment at 780-925-2305.
Regarding the open house, it certainly bodes well for the future. The event was a well-attended social gathering with women and their children dropping in to chat, enjoy hors d’oeuvre and refreshments while becoming familiar with the new space.
