Quotes attributable to Just Cuts CEO Amber Manning

"The health of our clients, stylists and team has always been central to everything we do at Just Cuts. We are of course disappointed that the New Zealand COVID-free run of no transmissions for a record 102 days has been broken but we remain deeply concerned at the cumulative impact on small business including our salons."

"New Zealand has put in place the toughest restrictions in the world and that has a significant impact on business viability. On top of that we are frustrated by the refusal of commercial landlords to come to the table to find an equitable solution which acknowledges the economic devastation of COVID-19 and includes rent reduction or suspension. Only a small number of these commercial landlords have made any concessions for our family-owned salons and even then they are only prepared to consider deferral of rent. It’s simply not enough given the current landscape and so we are calling on them to step up to the plate too."

"Afterall, without tenants, there’s no rent being paid."

"Our salon owners and stylists are grateful for the ongoing support of our loyal clients and their many messages. We are grateful for the ongoing professionalism and enthusiasm of our team."
