New Jersey Salon Planning to Open Despite Coronavirus Shutdown
The owners of one New Jersey salon will not wait for Governor Murphy to lift restrictions to begin treating clients.
The Brick and Mirror Beauty Bar in Parsippany plans to reopen for business on June 1, according to Patch.com. It has been closed since March 19 in compliance with the shutdown of non-essential businesses amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The salon's owners Nick Mirabella and George Verdis recently appeared on CNN to discuss their plight. Verdis stated, "What it comes down to is we have families to feed and our employees have families to feed. At the end of the day we were told by Gov. Murphy we were going to be 15 days, this was in March, then it went to 15 more days and then 30. There obviously isn't a plan from his end to open up."
Nick Mirabella recently spoke with our sister station NJ 101.5 and said he doesn't want there to be a spectacle outside of Brick and Mirror similar to that of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, who made several attempts to reopen this month in defiance of Governor Murphy's orders. That gym has now reportedly been completely shut down by the state. Mirabella is hoping for a peaceful reopening at his own establishment.
Over the weekend, a Great Clips in Missouri made news after two of its stylists allegedly came in with symptoms of the virus but worked on clients anyway.
