Gary’s seen the area come up quite a bit in recent times, and supports all efforts to keep improvement on the right track.
And for West End Hair, the salon Gary has run for 6 years, multiculturalism complements the independent, bohemian nature of commerce along the vibrant, bustling corridor of this important city thoroughfare. As an independent salon linked to Aveda, an international hair care brand , Gary feels that West End Hair is a great fit for the Great Western, and his loyal client base agrees. Gary’s is proud to be the stylist who clients come to for their first and last haircuts.
Being part of a business community where corporate giants are largely absent is good news for Gary, Indeed, there’s a strong sense of community in this neck of the city, and relations between local businesses are warm and friendly.
The area’s not perfect, and things like erratic refuse collection can be maddening, but the signs of improvement are steady and sure. Gary’s seen the area come up quite a bit in recent times, and supports all efforts to keep improvement on the right track. Great Western Road doesn’t need to be a glossy, slick style mile, it’s always been a bit bohemian and that unique character needs to stay, but there’s always room for improvement.
As someone who gets a lot of his business through digital promotion, and who sees the real potential for localised marketing, Gary hopes that Great Western Road’s development will be supported by digital promotion. Wouldn’t it be great if local business could build the profile of the area by doing offers online or through an app? For Gary, it’s simple. The future of Great Western Road has simply got to be digital.
