Christos Wins Shop of the Year 2015 In Milton Keynes

Shop of the year 2015 inside Shop of the Year 2015 Outside shopA Double Celebration for Christos!

It was a snip! Christos Hair Salon have been overwhelmingly voted Newport Pagnell Independent Shop of 2015 by their devoted customers.
Mark & Tina Periclis, owners of the salon were over the moon to hear that they had won the accolade and the recognition is particularly special, as 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the setting up their business.
Mark’s father, Christos, started the business in 1965 and the world of hairdressing has changed beyond recognition since. Today’s salon is a constant hive of activity and the commitment to customer service is second to none. They have adapted their business to meet the needs of today’s busy client and keeping ahead of the fast moving techniques and trends has put them at top of their game.
The salon has also been working in partnership for the past 2 years with both MK and Bedford Hospitals and MacMillan to offer a unique and personal service to cancer patients and those who suffer with alopecia in their private first floor salon.
Mark said, “I was born and bred in Newport Pagnell, also 50 years ago! Dad has since returned home and I’ve been keeping this competition a secret from him, I just can’t wait to tell him the amazing news. What a great year its turning out to be!”
As an advocate of our local independant shops, I was so pleased with the fantastic response to this campaign as it gives customers the opportunity to be able to say thank you to their favourite butcher, florist, grocer, or whoever it maybe.
Many congratulations to Mark, Tina and all the dedicated team at Christos, it’s clearly not a case of “hair today and gone tomorrow!”

It’s Enough To Make Your Hair Curl!

It was a joy to be able to meet lucky voter, Ro Smith from Sherington and congratulate him on winning £100 to spend at Christos Hair Centre.
Ro was randomly chosen from over 350 people who voted in my campaign to find the most popular Independent Shop of 2015 in Newport Pagnell.
On meeting up with Ro, I learnt that he had been a customer at Christos for over 30 years, in fact he used to pop into their first shop in Wolverton when he was working as a truck driver in the steel works.
The family legacy continues on as Luke, Ro’s grandson, is already a regular customer at Christos and is delighted to learn that his granddad is willing to share his good fortune!
