Back in December we wrote about Nancy’s Salon on Johnson Ferry Road as many small businesses are trying to cope with the effects of COVID-related closures.
Owner Qamar Hisamuddin told us then that while some federal Paycheck Protection Program assistance helped for a while, it’s still a challenge to get back to anything resembling normal business.
“It’s OK but not there yet!” she said “We have customers coming in after their vaccines. We all got vaccinated. Still following distancing and safety guidelines. Hopefully we should be back to normal in few months.”
Qamar followed up with us to note that U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath stopped by last week for a visit as part of a tour of small businesses in the 6th Congressional District and that included a round table discussion with other East Cobb business owners.
She said it was an “honor to have been invited to have East Cobb businesses talk about how the pandemic has impacted our business with the Congresswoman.”
