Two years after Salon Red left Decatur, the Salon Reds Kids location is also packing up its scissors and headed elsewhere.
The company tells Decaturish its last day at its East Ponce de Leon location will be July 24.
“Our Decatur Kids location will be merging into our Brookhaven Kids location, beginning July 24th your stylist will be joining our Brookhaven Kids location,” a company representative said via email. “We intend to have monthly VIP Kids Mondays at our Candler Park location where we will be honoring the Kids Salon Pricing. As always kids 7 years and up are welcome at our Candler Park location, for our regular Candler Park kids’ pricing.”
Souper Jenny recently announced it was looking for a new Decatur location due to the lack of parking near its store. Salon Red Kids did not say if parking was a reason the company is leaving its Decatur store, but noted there’s plenty of parking at the Brookhaven location.
“There were a few factors behind the scenes that contributed to the decision but there is definitely ample amount of parking at our Brookhaven kids location, including free deck parking,” the company representative said. “Also please keep in mind that we will continue to have a strong presence in the Decatur community and they can still reach us for school and city events and fundraising.”
The owner of the building, Pichulik Properties, is looking for a new tenant.
“We would love to find a cool retail store to enhance the square,” Elissa Pichulik said.
