The owner of a Dallas salon reopened on Friday in violation of the current coronavirus shutdown in Texas, and despite a city quote, a cease and desist letter, and a visit by law enforcement officials. order, she plans to keep her business open.
What are the details?
Shelly Luther is the owner of Salon a la Mode, where 19 stylists work. It announced earlier this week that it would reopen after being forced to close a month ago, despite government dictates and threats.
“I’m late on my mortgage,” Luther told Inside Edition before reopening. “I know many of my stylists have not paid their mortgages. It’s either coming in and earning money to feed your family, or staying at home and freaking out. “
The outlet reported that “since the news came that it defies order, Luther has said that his phone rings with people who want their hair done.”
After the reopening of the show, customers, supporters and demonstrators all came on site all day. Finally, the Dallas police and even the firefighters responded. In the afternoon, the city had given him a quote and “the office of Clay County Judge Clay Jenkins sent a letter to Luther to” stop and abstain “”, KXAS-TV reported.
Luther has implemented a number of social distancing measures to ensure safety, including providing masks to clients and requiring stylists to wear masks and gloves.
Despite the setback she received for its reopening, Luther says she has no other choice: she made the lease payment on her living room this month instead of her own mortgage.
The business owner explained that his response to the government was, “If you can’t afford to pay us and feed our families because the systems are so late, you have to let us work. You have to. “
