Latest news from your favorite salon:
As many of you are aware, Salon Thalia has been undergoing some major changes these last few months. It all started in February, when a water pipe on the third floor of the building broke, causing water to come pouring in through our ceiling. Unfortunately, the leak was not contained to a little area of our salon, but most of the entire first floor. Here’s just a sample of the salon after most of the water had drained out…
We have been tirelessly working with contractors and repair companies to not only fix this damage, but to improve on the design of the space. Some of you have noticed countless workers coming in and out of the building trying to repair the salon to get it into working order. In the meantime, while we could only use the front desk retail space, we have been able to work, temporarily, out of two other salons, both of which are only a half block from Thalia:
Dino’s salon, located at 1420 Locust St. in the Academy House, has been so generous to us and has welcomed us with open arms. The time we’ve shared together with the staff in this unique salon has been amazing. New friendships have been formed and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.
AMS salon, at 262 S. 16th St., have also welcomed us into their space without hesitation. The staff there have been so nice to cater to us and help us as we were running around in a frenzy wondering what our next move was. They experienced some trouble with the hot water heater (as it wasn’t able to provide for TWO salons and constant use), and yet through all the struggles and hectic atmosphere, they came through for us when we needed it.
We know it has been hard on these salons, taking us in with no notice and helping us out in our time of need. We are truly grateful and appreciative of their generosity and kindness and will never forget it.
So if you’re wondering where we currently stand, here’s the update…
This week we will be moving back into our own salon. As repairs are still being made, we will only occupy a small portion of the salon until the entire salon is finished. Here’s a sneak peak of what you’ll be seeing when you visit us for your next appointment…
Remember, for the next couple weeks, our stylists are still on a limited schedule (due to limited space) so if you want an appointment, give us a call at 215-790-0200. We can’t wait to host you in our new salon!
Also, stay tuned for an announcement about our GRAND RE-OPENING EVENT!!!
