A luxury salon has opened in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland.
The salon, which was built on an old dairy barn, was first opened in 2011.
It has become the latest addition to the Vancouver-based salon scene.
(CBC News: Jodi Brown)”This is a really unique concept,” said Jodi Bouchard, founder and president of Bouchards Luxury Salon.
“It’s really a new, unique salon concept that we’ve never had before.”
Bouchards salon opened on the corner of West 5th and King streets on Nov. 19, 2015.
The two floors of the building feature an indoor and outdoor patio.
Bouchard said the salon offers a variety of products and services, including a massage room, massage table, bar, wine bar, and even a full-size video camera.
Boucher told CBC News she has had some complaints about customers not respecting the decor and the smell of the air conditioning, but said she was surprised at how well-received the salon has been.
“I feel like the clientele that come here, they’re really good,” she said.
“They come here for the atmosphere.
They come here to enjoy the atmosphere.”
A few months ago, the owners also had to relocate from the area because of the construction, which made their business difficult.
“We just had to leave because we couldn’t afford to stay,” she explained.
“The new owners are so accommodating.
They’ve been wonderful with everything.
They make us feel comfortable.
I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity to build a business in Vancouver.”
Bouchers salon opened in November, 2015, and has been described as a salon for people looking for a relaxing experience.
“It’s a very intimate space that’s very intimate and very private, so the whole vibe of it is very private,” she added.
Boutique cosmetics shop opens in the areaThe Boutique Cosmetics shop opened in a warehouse in the Lower Mainlands.
The store is located in a former dairy barn.
“In the early days of the company, we were just trying to make a living as we could,” said owner, Julie Boucher.
“We were trying to survive.”
Boutiques boutique was opened in the city in 2017.
“I feel lucky because I have so much history with the city, and Vancouver is a very big city,” she noted.
“You go through neighbourhoods and you know neighbourhoods.
I was fortunate enough to be in one of those neighbourhoods, so I can speak from that experience.”
Bougcher said the boutique has become an important part of the community, as it serves as a place for people to go to socialize and for people in the community to meet other people.
“When you have a business that has so many customers, and it’s also such a community, I think you have that advantage,” she continued.
“And I think it’s the most successful thing I’ve ever done.
I’m really excited about what the future holds for me.”
Bourbon has been working in Vancouver for more than a decade.
She said the city is “the home of the arts.”
“We’re in a very vibrant area, and we’re very much in the heart of the city,” said Bourbon.
“There’s a lot of interesting events and people who are interested in art.”
She added that Vancouver has always been a place that has a sense of community.
“You don’t want to go anywhere without your friends or your family,” she concluded.
People want to come and have a great time, and I think Vancouver is the perfect place to be.”
