Another New Business for Tarvin
A report out last week confirmed that there was still a very high level of unoccupied premises in North West town centres. It's pleasing, therefore, to note that here in Tarvin although turnover of tenants has been high in the recent past, they have quickly been replaced by new businesses and hence our centre has still retained a vibrant atmosphere.
A recent case in point was the closure of Hunters at Home and its rapid replacement by SXY Skin which has relocated from Chester. The name has set a few tongues wagging and there have been rumours of sniggering schoolboys but this intrepid reporter from TarvinOnline can confirm that the new business is a specialist skin care clinic.
The owner of the business, Deborah Cope, originally trained as a microbiologist, but then became involved in the beauty treatment industry and has worked for a number of years in 5 star hotel spas and skin clinics. Three years ago she set up SXY Skin which specialises in laser impulse light technologies for the removal of hair or tattoos and the treatment of skin pigmentation and acne scars. It was a surprise to learn that 37% of SXY Skin customers are male.
Deborah's customers come mainly from the North West and North Wales but she is currently in the process of setting up a unit in Windsor to cater for customers in the south of England. Deborah said "relocating from Chester has made it much easier and less stressful for customers to access her services"
Deborah has another string to her bow and that is acting as a judge and consultant to Top Model UK and Top Model World-Wide, which are the leading professional search competitions for the UK and Internationally. Top Model UK is now in its eight season.
The modelling industry has come under criticism in recent years for causing potential health problems for young models and competitions such that Top Model now arrange more support for aspiring models. Deborah's role in this respect to is to provide advice on skin care and nutrition.
