Business Update – 20th May 2020
It is very sad to have to tell you all that Aldwyn & Sons will not be re-opening for the foreseeable future and that our residence in Sharps Barber & Shop has also come to an end.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it is not commercially viable for us to continue trading and looking to grow as we were two months ago. We are unable to benefit from any government support that would be sustainable for the business.
I strongly intend for Aldwyn & Sons to make a comeback in the future, but this will require stability and capital for us to operate again sustainably. As soon as the business has a chance of commercial success again, I will give my all to find the capital to get it going. When we do I still intend to honour all gift cards outstanding.
As a small business that set out to change men’s attitudes and prove the concept that men get manicures and pedicures, we achieved a great first step in this.
On a personal note I would like to thank you all for your support in the last 18 months. This is a bitter pill to swallow but I must do what makes the most commercial sense for myself and my family.
I will remain contactable on firstname.lastname@example.org for any correspondence.
Very best wishes,
