A 'Simply Special' special move

Date published: 30 October 2017

Simply Special, a beauty salon offering services such as hair dressing, nails, and beauty treatments, has relocated, purchasing premises on Baillie Street in Rochdale town centre.

Co-owner Samantha Collins said: “Rochdale town centre is currently undergoing a huge regeneration programme and the planned retail and leisure development offers a huge opportunity for a business like ours.”

Co-owner Stacey Cummins added: “We are genuinely excited by the prospects for growth thanks to the increased footfall and prominent location of the salon.”

The purchase was fundec with a commercial mortgage from Barclays; Rachel Whalen, Barclays Business Manager, commented: “As well as retaining their existing client base built over the past 10 years they will also be able to capitalise on new visitors to the town. I would encourage any small business owners like Sam and Stacey who looking for advice and support on access to finance to come along and speak to Barclays.”

Simply Special is holding an Open Day on Saturday 4 November to celebrate the launch of the new premises.
