WILMINGTON — Amanda George, owner of The Cutting Room of Wilmington — an Aveda concept salon and spa in operation for over 12 years — has taken on partners.
Larry and Lynne Laake of Clarksville have purchased the building at 135 N. South St. and their company, L-Cubed Inc., are now doing business as The Cutting Room.
“We are anxious to join forces with Amanda to build on the current successes of The Cutting Room by expanding to multiple locations to increase offered services and employee base,” said Larry Laake. Larry, who has volunteered on the Clinton County Port Authority since 2015, is excited to directly influence economic growth in the area.
In addition to the joint management, the current location will soon be supplemented with additional locations to provide easier ground floor access and added space for complete salon and spa services.
Coming in mid-summer, additional space at 113 N. South St. will be opened and operational with full salon and spa services. Leased from Belair properties and insured by Zeigler Insurance, the new addition is already undergoing its own cosmetic enhancements from local providers including Matkra Construction and Brown Plumbing.
“Being neighbors with Fiesta Veracruz will help expand the retail activity on South Street after 5 p.m. and continue to build on the existing Main Street growth,” said Laake.
Amanda george added, “The addition of the new location will offer increased employment opportunities for newly-trained and seasoned professionals in the cosmetology industry including additional internships from vocational schools.”
With an ever-growing client list that includes event services for visitors of the World Equestrian Center, The Cutting Room plans to continue as a family-friendly and multi-generational service provider for men and women and will retain its community involvement and charitable contributions.
