Colt Davis, owner of the White House Salon on School Street in downtown Greer, has had a busy time ever since the Governor McMaster's announcement that salons could open on May 18. Salons and barbershops were among the last businesses allowed to open since the COVID-19 pandemic forced businesses to close on March 31.

Many salons and barber shops also had non-stop first day back to work schedules and were looking forward to a full week of catching up.

“I bet I got 100 messages wanting to make appointments the day the governor announced the opening date,” Davis said.

“I did my best to get all of White House Salon’s clients in Monday who called for appointments and still abide by the governor’s strict guidelines. It took the entire day, because it was a complicated task, creating the time spot for each one.

“But it worked. We’re here today and we have a steady stream of clients,” Davis said the shop is not be open on Mondays on a regular basis, just for this special day.

This special Monday was a 10-hour workday for Davis, with no lunch break, “but we’re all just really thankful for the business,” he said.

In preparation for the big day, Davis sent a message to his customers:

“The main thing for you to do is to text me when you arrive, and then just wait for me to text you when to come into the salon. I’ll text you when my previous client has left and I have cleaned my station for you. “

Davis said despite the busy day, everything went as planned. Hands were washed, stations were sanitized, and proper distance between stations was observed. “We are just happy to be back at work and happy to see our customers.”
