GEORGE TOWN: After being “shut off” for more than 80 days, beauty and facial centre operators here say they can’t wait to open their doors.
Beauty centre owner Chuah Jo Win, 25, said she was looking forward to working again after the announcement on Saturday by Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob that barbershops,
hair salons and beauty parlours could resume operations on Wednesday.
“I have already received calls for facial appointments from my regulars. They are really excited about coming in for treatment after waiting for two months, ” she said.
However, Chuah said her shop would not be able to handle the expected surge in customers as she had to cut down on her workers.
“I will be attending to customers on my own, ” she said at her shop in Bayan Lepas yesterday.
Chuah will only allow one customer at a time into her shop.
“No waiting will be allowed and all facial treatment will be on appointment basis.
“This means that I can only take one to three customers a day.
“Fortunately, my customers understand this and are willing to wait for an open slot, ” she said.
Muslimah spa and hair salon founder and owner Wan Shuhada Wan Ali, 43, said she would only let in two to three customers each time.
“We hope to serve our customers strictly on appointment basis as it might get crowded if people walk in without an appointment.
“I want to ensure everyone’s safety and am not willing to take chances, ” she said, adding that her spa maintained a database of over 1,800 customers.
