Great Clips is planning to open a salon at Towne Square Shopping Center in Roanoke.
The quick-cut salon company has leased 1,400 square-feet in the former Verizon Wireless store to left of Marshall’s, according to John Nielsen, a broker for the real estate company Thalhimer, which handles leasing at the center.
It is unclear when the salon will open. A spokesperson at Great Clips’ corporate headquarters did not respond to an email last week.
The company has applied for a building permit to demolish the interior and build new walls. The work is valued at $75,000, according to the permit.
These walk-in salons have been popping up more frequently. The Towne Square Great Clips will be across the street from Supercuts, which opened last year in the new building attached to the Rutgers Street Kroger. And, Supercuts announced this summer that it would open at Towers Shopping Center next to High Peak Sportswear.
