It’s taken us some time to get our schedules together for the second installment of the vlog series. For those of you connecting in for the first time, we have recapped what this series is about at the bottom. You can watch our first video on the NextGen website HERE .
Our second installment finds us hanging out with RJ and Prudie at ShopChop #yournewfavoritestore Located at #102, 10265 107 St downtown Edmonton. It is open Monday to Friday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturdays 10 am - 4 pm. There is street parking located out front and a few open parking lots not too far away. You can access this location by bus as the #2 and #109 run right out front and Strathcona transit also has a few lines that go by as well.
Formally known as Shampoo, a….if you guessed hair salon - you got it, ShopChop evolved into a hair salon with a shop out front 2 years ago. When you walk by you might think its a plant store specializing in succulents and cacti but it’s way more than that. When you walk in your are treated to a delightful surprise as you spot some of the coolest decor and gift ideas, everything from coffee mugs, lighting, candles, balloon dogs to beautiful locally sourced jewellery, gift cards and of course shampoos and hair products.
The owners of ShopChop answered a few questions for us and we caught it all on the vlog, but a few things you might not hear is that they love mustard, they have been best friends for longer than they’ve been in business together. They will take song requests in the salon as long as it's within their preferred artist or genre choices and NSFW is totally a go!
Take a stroll downtown and visit ShopChop you will not be disappointed.
In this series we will be visiting local restaurants and businesses throughout Edmonton and sharing our experience with you through video and written content. We will focus on accessibility, atmosphere and affordability, we will leave the reviews to you and just share what we learn.
