Lynn town centre barber’s Mckenzies joined forces with clothing designer firm Cultivate for a pop-up event on Saturday which was so successful that a similar one is planned in the near future.
Although heavy downpours affected the number of visitors in the morning, by early afternoon there was a steady stream of visitors at the shop in Broad Street who were able to view the range of clothing produced by Lynn-based Cultivate, founded by Matt Mulready.
He said: “In the morning the atrocious weather hampered us as the town became deserted, but when the day brightened we saw around 30 people, which we thought was very good.
“Given this, we are looking to hold a pop-up shop again late June when we can guarantee the weather will be nice and we intend to this time be outside the front of Mckenzies hairdressers, providing far easier access for our customers.”
A free haircut and shave at Mckenzies was won by Tom Clayton, who completed a survey about fashion and grooming and another competition for pulling the funniest face with Cultivate’s sign, was Ben Greene, who won a piece of headwear of his choice.
Cultivate offered customers a 15 per cent discount which proved popular with several products sold on the day.
The partnership between Cultivate, which focusses its business on young people, and Mckenzies aims to give customers the ultimate experience of looking and feeling good, said Matt.
