The Benefits of Double Edge Shaving Blades

Shaving has become highly commercialised thanks to the large number of different brands that cater to a more masculine audience in recent years. Unfortunately, this commercialisation has come with a drawback. There is a significant increase in companies that are offering subscriptions for reasons where they will give you multiple blade cartridges in a month. Unfortunately, the problem with such offers is that these are some of the most basic safety razors in Australia that money can buy. There have been numerous complaints that even before you can go through the four to five cartridges, you end up having a...

Furniture & barber chairs

Posted by Atlantic Supply on

For the barber suppliers, there is always a dilemma – where to focus in. – Cosmetics products that they sell on a regular basis, or  – Furniture and barber chairs (even sometimes construction) – which is more of a project type of business. Both have pros and cons of doing furniture/barber chair.  Pros: – Profitability is high. One good lump sum money. Nice cash inflow – who can say no? 🙂 – The customer becomes a life long cosmetics customer  (if he is happy about the purchase) – Competition is less (particularly if you are doing a tailor-made project) But...
