Just a few months after opening her first Hair Store, Chandali Gullick is moving it.
She opened her beauty supply business near Harry and Hillside in June, but Gullick says the traffic wasn’t what she hoped it would be.
Then Gullick’s grandmother died.
“It hit me so hard.”

She thought about not staying in the business, but then Gullick says she thought about what her grandmother would want her to do.
“She wouldn’t want me to give up.”
So Gullick is going to reopen her store at 5426 E. Central, which is just west of Central and Edgemoor.
“I pulled up my britches and got it together.”
Gullick says she learned a lot in the short time her first store was open.
“Sometimes location is everything,” she says.
The new store will open on Oct. 28. The other one is already closed.
In addition to a lot of traffic in the area, Gullick says there are a couple of salons close to where she’s opening.
“As a beauty supply store, you can’t ask for anything better.”
