A mani polish store opened in Montreal on Wednesday, but owner, Lola Dussault, said it was only a small storefront.
She said the store will have about 20 people on staff.
The store, which will be in the same spot that her brother and father, Georges, also own, is a small boutique-style store that sells manicures, make-up, and other accessories, she said.
The salon, which opened in December, is in the French-language section of the Quebec City mall, with the doors closed.
Dussaults parents were shopping in the mall when they saw the store, she recalled.
The father said the father had a manicure at the store and they wanted to take a picture with the store owner.
She was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m going to be so sad, I won’t be able to do this.
I can’t do this anymore, it’s not something I want to do, she told CBC News.
Dux, who was in the process of getting a dental license when the store opened, said the salon was a great opportunity for him.
“It was like a dream come true.
The idea of doing a salon for kids is really exciting,” he said.
“We just had a lot of fun.
It was a lot to deal with, but it was an opportunity.”
Dussaux, who said she is a single mother of three, said she plans to stay open and that she is very excited about the store opening.
“I think the customers are going to like it,” she said, adding that the salon is not a makeup store.
The owner said she wanted to open her store in Montreal because the Quebec city mall is very popular.
She also said that she was excited about how much money the salon will bring in.
Dusault said she also plans to open a second salon in the next few months, with a total of six people on board.
