Hairstylist Shari Goldberg said Amazon’s offer of free Amazon services for $79.99 per year is the biggest deal she’s ever gotten for her hair salon.
“I’m thrilled,” she said.
Goldberg is the founder of the salon in New York City.
She said the gift was a big help in finding her best-selling salon book and getting her stylist to get to know Amazon’s new service.
Goldberg said she plans to keep the salon’s website up and running for Amazon Prime members until at least 2019.
“Amazon is just doing so much more than what we’ve been doing for the last 10 years,” she added.
Goldberg also noted that she had to wait for Amazon to offer her a discount on a new hairstylist in New Jersey.
“It was a little bit of a shock, but Amazon really cares about the customer,” Goldberg said.
“If it’s worth it to them, they’ll do it.”
Goldberg said the Amazon gift is one of the best she’s gotten in years.
“The only thing I can say is that the Amazon community is incredible and they really care about their customers,” she concluded.
The Hairdresser Bookstore is the only hair salon in the country to be named one of Time magazine’s “100 Best Hair-Related Products” for the past three years.
Amazon’s Prime membership program will start in 2018.
Goldberg noted that Amazon is also making it easier for salon owners to stay in business.
“They’ve started offering free hair cuts, and they have a program that they offer for people who want to buy a lot of things like makeup, hair tools, and accessories,” she explained.
Goldberg hopes to keep running the salon until 2019.
