Miu Beautique

June 10, 2018

Country Market Craft
The Miu Beautique had their grand opening on 8th June with special offers. They are the latest nail salon in Abingdon, and are located in the the premises previously run by the Ha Noi Cafe.

I did wonder why there so many nail salons set up in Abingdon. According to an old Financial Times article‘The confluence of low start-up costs and the popularity of nail fashions has led a diverse group of entrepreneurs to venture into nail salons.’

‘Nail bars expand by continuously innovating to attract repeat customers: “In nails you can be more outrageous than with cosmetics on your face.”

    It’s because only a few of the independent stores make any kind of profit in Abingdon, and none of the chains (That bring the shoppers in..) and I mean decent ones, not peacocks, want to open in Abingdon.

    Meanwhile just a few miles away in Didcot, the sky is the limit.. we have new shops, new restaurants, (if not actually in yet, confirmed and contracts signed/planning permission done) new houses being built that all the old toffs are not opposing, new roads, and we have seen that house prices are surpassing that of Abingdon now too. Oh, and did I mention we have a train line?

    Yeah, but our flowers look lovely.

    It’s interesting that “house prices surpassing that of Abingdon” is portrayed as positive; many struggling to buy might disagree.

    Waste of money, does nothing to attract people to the town.

    ‘i want to go to Abingdon, rather than Witney or Didcot to shop.. the shops are terrible, but the flowers are nice to look at for approx 6 seconds’

    Said nobody
