Ribbon cut for new beauty salon at revitalized Murray St. location

Ribbon cutting at new beauty salon.

The redevelopment of the property at 79 Murray St. is wrapping up and the first of two businesses has moved in.

Beauty by Bretton & Co. has opened in the building, located at the southeast corner of Murray St. and Ramsay St.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held last Thursday morning though the business’ grand opening was the night of Feb. 10. Owner Bretton Braakman said the business moved to its new location in January.

Braakman said she started her business with “humble beginnings” in 2017 in a spare bedroom of a condominium she had with husband James. She began renting space in LaSalle and moved to Amherstburg two years ago where she operated out of a Murray St. location.

With her former location now due to be part of an extensive renovation, she moved to her current location. She said when they moved to Amherstburg, she knew she wanted to set up shop in the downtown area.

“I love the sense of community that is here. I’ve had tremendous support in the community which has allowed me to grow my business.”

Braakman is pleased with her new location, estimating it is twice the size of her now former location. The grand opening was an opportunity to celebrate with clients as well as family and friends.

“I love it,” she said of the new location. “I love being in downtown Amherstburg.”

Mayor Michael Prue stated “downtown Amherstburg is booming” with multiple businesses opening. He told Braakman she is a part of it.

“I have total confidence you will make this a roaring success,” he said.

In addition to beauty services such as make-up art, lash extensions, eyebrow waxing and spray tans, the business had added hair services. Hairstylist Chloe Belulis has joined Bretton at Beauty by Bretton & Co.
