A HAIRDRESSER and beauty therapy salon at a leisure centre in Towcester has doubled its client base in 18 months.
In March 2010 owner Joanna Bradshaw (far right) opened Images by Joanna at the Towcester Centre for Leisure run by South Northants Leisure Trust (SNLT). Mrs Bradshaw said her decision to shun a traditional high street location meant she could take advantage of the centre’s free parking and disabled access.
She added: “Being in the centre offers clients peace and quiet, rather than the noise of a high street and traffic hubbub.”
Mrs Bradshaw believes only large firms, and not independents have been teaming up with leisure centres and thinks the business model has huge potential.
Images by Joanne offers a wide range of beauty treatments, massages, and tanning.
