Nathan Puls is 3 years old, and local haircutting salon Great Kutz is celebrating its third year in business. As a matter of coincidence, Nathan helped Great Kutz achieve another milestone this week by becoming the 1,000th customer to receive a free haircut. At Great Kutz, every seventh haircut is free. Nathan is pictured with his father, John. Maren Slane cut Nathan's hair.
Byron and Chris Ariyaratnam were all smiles this evening when I stopped by the location of their new business, Great Kutz, in Valu Plaza on West Main Street. Byron was busy training the new staff, who will be ready to start cutting hair in the morning.
Chris and Byron are partners in The Mane Attraction, and Byron is a partner in Mr. Wine and Liquor. They're the kind of local entrepreneurs Batavia needs. And they are proof that there are plenty of business people who believe in Batavia and are willing to invest both their money and their effort in building a sustainable Batavia business community.
