New hair salon delighted to be part of growing Glemsford business park
The owner of a new hairdressing business, which launched in Glemsford last weekend, says she is delighted to kick off her new venture as part of a fast-growing business park.
Ruth’s Hair Salon, located on Stour Valley business park off Lower Road, held its grand opening on Saturday.
It is being run by Ruth Gardiner, who has been in the trade for 30 years, since starting at West Suffolk College aged 17, working in salons and, for the past 11 years, as a mobile hairdresser, which she will continue alongside her new business.
But Ruth told the Free Press it had always been her dream to have her own salon, and she jumped at the chance to move into a unit at the business park, operated by the Seaman family.
She praised the efforts of her partner Steve and sons William and George for helping to start the business.
“With the help of family and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, we got there,” she said.
“In this day and age, where small business are important, it’s nice to have a small business park available.
“We have a cleaning business, a landscaping business, a carpet business, and the park is building all the time, so it’s a great place to start.”
