Local Honey will now have two locations. The first is nine years old and is set up in close proximity to Belmont University. The new salon will be located on Gallatin Avenue near Stratton Avenue. The new building will occupy 2,300 square feet.
Luke Tidwell, a co-owner of Local Honey with Kevin Perryman, has stated, “We think East Nashville is underserved in the full-service salon industry right now. We have tons of friends who would benefit from that, and people in East Nashville tend to patronize businesses in that area, which is great.”
Local Honey is known for selling vintage clothing along with local fashion designers. The salon portion of the business was launched two years ago when Tidwell and Perryman took ownership of Local Honey.
Highlights of the new building will be that it will be 500 square feet larger and the salon and clothing boutique will share the same level. There will also be more stylist chairs, 6 more than the last establishment.
The new location offers opportunities for the business to expand its services. The new Local Honey will cater toward the different customers in its new area. Although some styles date back to the 1950’s, predominantly the boutique carries goods from the 80’s and 90’s.
