Ella Bache Salon Chermside’s Future Uncertain as Logan-Based Sister Closes

Ella Bache Salon Chermside’s Future Uncertain as Logan-Based Sister Closes

The continued Covid pandemic’s negative effects on businesses around the world have forced the Ella Bache beauty salon franchise to close another location. The future of Ella Bache salon at Brisbane’s Westfield Chermside is currently unknown.

The Logan-based salon that has been serving customers for 19 years permanently closed its doors, leaving both customers and employees with heartfelt memories and a sense of loss.

Owner of the EBQ Nominees firm, which ran three Ella Bache salons, Roslyn Rudd, announced the closure with sadness. She attributed the difficult choice to the Covid pandemic’s extensive impacts, which have left numerous businesses around the world facing economic hardship and uncertainty.

This is not Ms. Rudd’s company’s first setback; in 2021, their Brisbane branch in Toowong suffered the same fate, which led to its closure. Businesses, particularly those engaged in the retail and service sectors, have found it increasingly challenging to survive as a result of the ongoing pandemic and the ensuing economic difficulties.

An EBQ Nominees liquidator had been selected, and the Chermside store was specifically mentioned in a winding-up notice published by the Australian Securities and Investment Commision. However, no official announcement regarding the Chermside salon’s future has been made at this time.

The devoted customers of the salon, who had been an important part of their journey for more than 19 years, received a touching statement from Ms. Rudd that she shared on Instagram. In the message, she expressed her regret and gratitude to them. 

She disclosed that the mall had given them a challenging choice: either move because their lease was about to expire, or leave. They took the unfortunate decision to close its Logan Hyperdome location because the financial burden brought on by the pandemic prevented them from making more investments in a new salon.

‘Financially, after all of the COVD impacts to our business these past years, we are unable to reinvest in a new salon.

“To all our valued clients, we are sadly advising that as our lease has finished we have faced a terrible decision from the shopping centre to relocate or leave,” her message reads.

‘So we have finished at the Logan Hyperdome with the salon now closed.

‘Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives these past 19-plus years.

‘Our staff and I will always remember our shared memories of your visits some for so many, many years.’
