Some businesses move overseas or interstate or to the next city.
But one of Orange’s longest-running hairdressing businesses, Bizzi Scizzors, run by Lynn Bowman has moved just a few doors up the same arcade.
It is a significant move for Mrs Bowman and her three staff as it brings her to the end of 13 years in the previous location.
“It’s a bigger space, with a lot more room,” she said of her new premises in The Plaza off Anson Street.
“I’ve been in business for 23 years at the end of this month.”
She said hairdressing was competitive in Orange and there was currently a shortage of trained hairdressers in the city.
The business is open every day except Sunday.
NEW REGIONAL ROLE FOR BANKER
Orange-based banker Toby Mendl has been appointed the new regional manager for Central NSW for Rabobank.
Mr Mendl was formerly the branch manager for Orange and Forbes.
It will mean the family man will now spend much of his time travelling around the state for the food and agribusines bank with a patch now extending from Bega to Walgett and the Liverpool Plains.
“There is plenty of optimism prevailing in agriculture, particularly in central NSW, signified by the activity in land acquisition and strong property values with the area renowned for its agricultural productivity and diversity of agricultural enterprise,” he said.
“We are lucky to have a great mix of experience in the team, from seasoned bankers with 20 years’ experience to recent university graduates.”
