If you haven't already got one, make sure that you ask Anita or Kim to give you one of our New Year 'Thank You' leaflets as a special thank you to all of our loyal customers for their continued support over the past 12 months. This leaflet entitles you to a 15% discount for all bookings made for January and February 2105 before the end of this year.
is looming closer and closer, so we decided that we, to both celebrate the second anniversary of Chic and at the same time make sure that our furry friends can also celebrate the festive season, will be throwing a Chic Christmas Party. The date has been set but it’s a secret - (Saturday, December 13th) and it is by special invitation only. So, make sure that special date is in the diary and that you receive one of those coveted invitations!
Web Site Launch
It's been a long time coming but it was worth the wait in our opinion. We love it. The web site is up and running and will not only give new clients some background information about Chic but it will also be updated regularly with news, blogs and lots of interesting information from within the grooming world. There is an extensive gallery section which we will be uploading and changing on a regular basis, (see how technology minded we have now become) new images of your furry friends, so have a look and let us know what you think (but please be kind otherwise John will go into one of his famous sulks – he calls it a strategic withdrawal!).
Just in case you feel the need to see what we are up to on a more regular basis and hopefully you will want to share some thoughts, images or news with us, we now have our own Facebook page as well where the more light hearted aspects of grooming will feature with links, news, and lots of photos, both serious and silly and even a competition or two. Look us up as chic-grooming and become a friend.
If that wasn't enough we also have our own Twitter account so you can 'tweet' and talk to us with any news, gossip, questions and all and anything you feel is worth sharing. Don't worry though,we will only be tweeting after hours, as during the day we will obviously be focusing 100% on the grooming! If you feel like having a 'tweet' then our account is chic_grooming.
Chic is going mobile to enable us to bring the same level of care, skill and expertise to your home should you find it more convenient for us to come to you. We are planning to launch Chic Mobile early in 2015 and are in the process of tweaking the finishing touches to the fitting out of the van and adding the corporate livery and signage. If this is a service that you think you yourself may like to take advantage of, or know of someone, friends, family or colleagues, that may like the idea of not having to leave their own homes, let us know so that we can book you in for 2015. The first 20 customers will receive a 25% discount off the normal prices, so get dialling/typing !
Watch This Space
Never one for standing still and always thinking about what we can do better for both our two, as well as our four legged friends, we are also looking to improve our facilities and will hopefully be installing a new Hydro bath (the doggie equivalent to a hot tub with lots of foaming bubbles while at the same time massaging the body with warm, soapy, bubbly water) in the salon as well as the one we have in Chic Mobile. In addition there are plans afoot, or should I say a 'paw', for a new collection and drop off service where, for a small fee, we will offer a home collection and delivery service, the 'Ocado' of the dog grooming world, although our vans won't be green! Watch this space for more updates.
As much as we like to hear about our strengths, what is equally, if not more important, is to know what our weaknesses are, so if you have heard, seen or read something that doesn’t seem quite right or you think should or could be changed for the better, then let us know. What is important to you is important to us so please help us to keep improving. If you like us, that’s great, if you don't then please tell us why.
Lastly, if you have any vouchers or discount cards left, please make sure you use them as they may not be valid for next year and if you haven't got any left then get some more and save you, your friends and family, some money !
That's it for now, so all being well we will see you soon, if not for a groom, then for a chat or at our Anniversary/Christmas Party!
