Eagle-eyed viewers of ITV Westcountry News may have spotted a familiar face on their televisions recently.
Superstar-retailer and commercial PCH tenant Leah Hara of Plym Hair and Extensions, was interviewed by ITV News about reopening retail, and the impact felt by traders from the lockdown.
Little did ITV know they were only about six months behind In Touch, who caught up with Leah in our autumn edition last year.
Leah was asked what could be done to tempt people back to the high street. Plym Hair and Extensions specialise in European and Afro hair products and services.
She spoke about the efforts being made to lure shoppers back, including some works from PCH such as a beautiful mural commissioned in Colin Campbell Court by a local artist.
“The news feature was all about people coming together to welcome shoppers back”, said Leah. “Obviously some businesses have struggled throughout the last 18 months, but the community has really come together in lots of ways.”
Leah’s business has gone from strength to strength during the most challenging period for retail traders.
She added: “We want to show customers that we can offer something different to online sellers and look forward to welcoming more people back to the high street.”
