WHEN Eastbourne, along with the rest of the country went into lockdown last year for the first time, it was obvious that small local businesses in Eastbourne were going to suffer.

In the case of Bliss Spa & Beauty salon, as a close-contact service provider, this meant real uncertainty about the future of the business for Marie Lopez, co-owner and manager of the well-established beauty salon in Meads Village.

New direction Mugshots Café/Deli was able to re-open sooner offering take away coffees and snacks, but it was not going to prove sustainable long term and it was clear a new business direction needed planning

Kiran Kaul, owner of Mugshots and lover of dogs had always welcomed customers with their four-legged friends and thus the opportunity to develop the business into Tall Tails Groomers and Pet shop was born

Joining forces Fast forward to the 3rd lockdown and it was a friendly chat between these two enterprising businesswomen that led to a joining of forces in the shape of their pamper packages for Beauty & your Beast

It is a wonderful example of local businesses working together during adversity to help each other and service the local community in Meads village and beyond.

The Pamper packages include a Blissful Beauty & Brunch option which includes a wonderful platter of Sussex’s finest cheese served with Prosecco catered by Tall Tails

Now we think that is a winning combination!
