GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.
May 1st is a huge day for retail and personal services as these businesses get to open their doors to clients for the first time in six weeks. The “Safer at Home” Order dictates these types of businesses can open to the public as long as COVID-19 guidelines are followed, and Harrah’s Salon in Grand Junction is one of those businesses.
It’s not just the salons required to follow the rules, the clients have to do it too. “Right now, they just can’t walk in and say, “I need an appointment.” They have to wash their hands, wear a mask, and they can’t come in until their appointed time cause we can only have 10 people at a time, including staff,” said Luann Harrah, owner of Harrah’s.
Harrah’s Salon has survived over three decades of tough times but the toughest time of all is right now. Luann says, ” I started in 1986 when I opened my salon. That’s when Exxon hit, and then in 2008 the housing economy hit. It was such a hard time financially for everyone. This is all that and more.”
These are both tough and tricky times but the local salon is on top of it by checking staff and clients’ temperatures before they enter the building, and other measures. “We sanitize everything all over again. We sanitize the shampoo bowl, the chair, anything that was touched, anything in the bathroom. It is massive sanitation,” said Harrah.
