Chatters Canada Limited unveils new concept and logo



    RED DEER, AB, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Chatters Canada Limited has unveiled a new
boutique style concept and new logo with the opening of two new beauty stores
and salons in West Edmonton Mall and Calgary's Chinook Centre. Chatters CEO
Jason Volk, "We have been waiting for the right real estate to become
available in West Edmonton Mall. We're thrilled that our Chinook Centre Salon
has been able to relocate on the main level. The contemporary new look,
features vivid blue glass tile, ultra modern lighting, and gleaming ceramic
floor tile. The new beauty stores showcase walnut shelving, striking product
displays and a clean, very classic look. The storefronts are unmistakably
posh, consisting of glass tile with backlit signage and inset displays of the
latest must-have products. The Chatters logo has evolved, switching from a
stylized look to more sophisticated and simplistic with a touch of panache.
Chatters' design evolution, combined with store growth and gain in market
share is a tribute to the long-standing vision of President and Founder, Ken
Fisher.
    The industry trend is pushing beauty store/salon combinations and
Chatters is poised for continued expansion. "We opened 12 stores in 2008 and
anticipate opening up to twelve new concept salons per year in the best
shopping centers in Canada," says CEO Volk. "We want our exclusive concept in
centers such as and similar to Square One, Yorkdale, Pacific Centre and Eaton
Centre."
    Despite reports about the future of so many Canadian businesses, Chatters
Canada is confident in the strength of the beauty industry for the long term.
Personal care, beauty and fashion are no longer considered luxuries, but
essential components of daily routine. Chatters' same store sales are up over
10 percent in 2008 and over 10 percent in January 2009.
