I own a salon with booth renters and also rent a chair in the salon. This is a dilema. Because of business falling off rapidly it is a concern if the stylists can pay their rent. We are not closing the salon unless it is mandated. On the other side of this the stylists do have leases and are able to work as many or as few days in the month that they choose. Our salon is in a strip mall and we still have to pay full rent and all the other expenses involved with keeping the salon open. I would expect to pay rent just as I would a house payment. As a renter I expect to pay my rent so the salon doesn’t end up closing the doors permanently as an owner I will do what I can to help the stylists out. Bottom line, the salon bills have to be paid whether we are mandated to close or not!
