LONDON, ON, March 15, 2017 /CNW/ - Sport Clips Haircuts, a modern-day barbershop concept and leader in hair care for men and boys, recently celebrated a significant milestone in their 4-year history, serving their one millionth client in Canada. Client appreciation celebrations lasted all week; clients were invited to play games at their nearest location, for chances to win various haircut upgrades, fun prizes, and in-Store discounts at their local Sport Clips store.
"We have lots to be grateful for as we celebrate this milestone," said Mark Schiffner, CEO of Sport Clips Canada. "We wanted to include our clients in the celebration, after all we have them to thank!"
In addition to playing games, Sport Clips provided various giveaways including: two (2) tickets to a local pro hockey game, four (4) Free Haircuts for a year, and more. The winner of the hockey tickets, Matthew Janzen from Vancouver, is thrilled to take his son to a professional hockey game. "I'm telling all of my friends about Sport Clips," said Janzen, after receiving the news that he was the Grand Prize winner.

"Our very first client was only four years ago, now we're celebrating our one millionth. We are truly excited and grateful for our outstanding Team Members, and incredibly dedicated clients across the Country," said Peter Kowal, President and COO.
