Kansas officially welcomed its very first Salon Service Group store in early February, conveniently located off 69 HWY at Highland Plaza, 10128 West 119th Street, Overland Park.
Move-in week kicked off on Super Bowl Sunday as two inches of snow fell over the Kansas City metro area, making for less-than-optimal moving conditions. Not the type to be deterred, however, the Overland Park store crew braved the elements and began the task of assembling furniture and fixtures. By Monday afternoon – in typical Missouri-weather fashion – most of the snow had melted into a dirty slush and the freshly-waxed floor of the new store was covered in a layer of salt sludge. A mop quickly moved to the top of the supply list.
Midweek brought the arrival of nine pallets piled high with premium hair product, the driver’s largest single delivery in his 10 years of freighting. As the saying goes: many hands make for light work, and within an hour the boxes were sorted into neat piles by brand.
Executing a new store setup always brings its own challenges, but after arranging product, organizing back-stock inventory and supplies, installing and testing register equipment, placing the décor, and of course giving the floor a final cleaning, it’s easy to appreciate the results of this former nail salon turned beauty supply distributor.
This brand-new store opened its doors on February 12th with a product assortment representative of all Salon Service Group brands except for Paul Mitchell, which is still available from the two Kansas City, Missouri locations. It boasts an easily-accessible location from both the Kansas and Missouri sides of State Line and ample parking, in addition to being in the same shopping center as a Starbucks – serving stylists’ favorite fuel. So, grab a cup of joe to-go and stroll down the sidewalk to visit the new OP Store! The staff would love to start the day with you and help to tackle all your business needs.
