That is truly f**king pathetic. A shop offers a lesser service than their own and as a result they usually earn a greater income. Does the competition complain? Likely not.This company got annoyed and drumming up a huge amount of hate on social media towards the one that can open, that it's closed again.
What makes it worse that the person who complained is the mother of another salon owner. Marbs (where I go) were given the green light by the council as all the offer is sunbeds. No contact, all social distancing measures in place.....and the other salon along with sunbeds do hair, nails and lashes. So they are completely different and cannot social distance so must stay shut.Theere has been a local sun bed shop that opened a few days ago. They checked with the council first. As you are in there on your own there it's fine for distancing. However there is another sunbedshop that does teeth whithening too thry are classed as a salon and not allowed to open their sunbed part of it. This company got annoyed and drumming up a huge amount of hate on social media towards the one that can open, that it's closed again. Sarah is not happy.
Apparently another cafe owner on Hayling was fined £1000 for something similar. It was the council that contacted them as someone had reported seeing the posts. Last week it was crazy busy on Hayling. Every cafe along the seafront was absolutely packed although they are still just open as takeaways. There was even a car club that had driven all the way down from London to meet up apparently and another VW van club meeting up further along. When I drove home the traffic stretched all the way from the seafront right up to the motorway junction at Havant.On the Hayling side of things, I get the owner wanting the posts removed because his business could get shut down if the council think that they have something to do with the organised meet
Yes, people will still meet up, but I side with the owner's concerns.
