Another local hairdressing salon is counting the cost after being wrecked with goods stolen in a despicable raid.
It happened at the Beyond Vanity premises at the Fiveways on the Armagh Road in Newry.
Local Sinn Fein MLA Liz Kimmins said she was “absolutely sickened” to hear of yet another break-in and serious damage caused.
She said: “Another hardworking businesswoman has been left devastated to find her salon completely ransacked and a significant amount of expensive items taken.
“Businesses are on their knees trying to survive the impact of this pandemic in the hope that brighter days are ahead, yet these thugs think it is OK to kick people when they are down.
“It is not clear of the exact date and time when this took place as PSNI are still examining CCTV but I would urge anyone who may have any information or noticed anything suspicious in the area in recent days to please share that info with the owners or report to PSNI on 101.
“Please also be on the look out for anyone selling professional hair or skin care products, laptops or iPhones as these are among some of the items that have been taken.
“We are sending our best wishes to Sonya and all at Beyond Vanity at this time. No one deserves this especially in the times we are living in.”
