NEWSFLASH SEPTEMBER 2017
Open since 2007, The Man’s Shop, 2587 Howard Avenue in Windsor, is a unique business where men can feel comfortable getting their haircut in a sports-themed environment. Owners installed a putting green, sports entertainment, foosball table, popcorn machine, televisions at every hair cutting station and big screen televisions in the waiting area. They also obtained a liquor license for patrons to drink while waiting to get their hair cut — a first of its kind in Windsor. Current owners, Jon and Lori Brown, have now sold the business to their friends, James and Ryan Lapeer. Extensive renovations and a “makeover” are set to occur, without business interruption, as the new owners are expanding the bar portion to 125 patrons and adding a 25-seat patio. It will operate seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. with an assortment of entertainment. Food options are also being explored. According to the Lapeers, “The Man’s Shop hopes to retain some of the existing staff and clientele and welcome newcomers to a space that is more “vintage barber” — classic and traditional — in a sports environment.” Get more details at: MansShopWindsor.com.
With over 25 years of serving the community, Essex County born and raised artist Ronald Suchiu, celebrates the homeland he loves so dearly with his “Canada 150” painting that includes a plaque on each framed print produced from the HMCS Shearwater, the country’s first naval ship. As many Suchiu art collectors would know, Suchiu usually hides a few little fun things for buyers to discover in his works of art. But, his newest release is like an Easter egg hunt on steroids or Indiana Jones style, with 150 hidden clues and objects all with a unique Canadian influence. He dares anyone to find them all! “I added many objects that would take us back to our youth and remind us of our country’s history,” explains Suchiu. “Because there is such a wide variety of objects and clues in the piece, I feel very confident that the picture will appeal to people of all age groups.” You can find this, and many other Suchiu Art projects, at his art and framing gallery, 143 Keown Street in Essex or online at: SuchiuArt.com.
Chiropractor Dr. Ginette St. Pierre, has been treating human patients since 2009, but in February 2017, she completed The Canadian Animal Chiropractic Certification Program through the Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Centre in Ontario and now treats dogs, cats and horses. Her clinic, Holistic Chiropractic & Wellness Centre is situated at 1350 Provincial Road, Windsor and on location (for horses). “As an animal lover, I’m thrilled to be working with four-legged clients — and now ALL members of the family can be well adjusted!” The process — and benefits — of chiropractic are very similar for animals as they are for us humans. St. Pierre looks for abnormal or restricted movement of the joints of the spine and extremities, and adjust as necessary to restore proper movement, reduce pain, improve mobility, and allow the nervous system and body to function at its maximum healthy potential. Chiropractic care is tremendously beneficial for healthy animals, and is also used to treat animals that are experiencing pain, stiffness, nerve problems, movement issues, or any number of other problems.
