We are in a new era of black business yall, specifically in the beauty supply store world that has been dominated by Asian business owners. We are no longer sitting around and allowing the black hair business to be owned and operated by anyone else other than ourselves and the proof is in the number of black-owned stores we have seen popping up everywhere.
With that said the first black-owned beauty supply store in Nashville Tennesee recently celebrated its grand opening and not only did they welcome new customers with excellent customer service but they made $50,000 worth of sales on the first day!
Roots Hair & Beauty has recently become the first Black-owned beauty supply store in Nashville, Tennessee. Up until recently, this area did not have a Black-owned beauty supply store even though mostly African American women shop at these types of stores. The owner, Sam Tisdale, says, “We are proud to be the first, and hopefully we won’t be the last.”
The company already has two successful locations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and they are very happy about the overwhelming amount of local support that they are receiving in the Nashville area. In fact, on their grand opening day, hundreds of customers braved bad weather to stand in line and show their support helping them to generate an estimated $50,000 in sales or more in just one day.
According to their web site, their company’s goal is to provide their customers with the best quality at the lowest price with outstanding customer service! Roots specializes in all categories in beauty supply like 100% human hair bundles, quick weaves, branded hair weaves, crochet braiding, natural hair products, and much more.
