At a time when businesses are up against the tough economic climate, signs of confidence returning to the system are refreshing. On that front, Susan Del Core’s delight in bequeathing us with her immaculate new salon is timely. Even more so, it re-echoes the message of local people playing their part in securing Bradford’s future prosperity.
Of course, the opening of a flagship salon at the former Rawson Hotel, which has been empty for years, from an investment viewpoint says a lot. The work that has gone into the building is breathtaking. In the process, Susan Del Core has landed herself on a piece of Bradford’s history. Listening to her touching account of a business that began with a small shop that belonged to her father in law, it is fitting to see her move to a building that once housed a renowned boxing gym.
Susan, rightfully so, describes her new venture as a ‘major milestone’. Along with her husband Lello, Del Core exemplifies the fighting spirit that it takes to succeed against the odds. Seemingly, the setbacks of the past have not thwarted their mission, hence another reminder of the building’s history.
Apart from the splendid surroundings and friendly, homely atmosphere you can also expect the highest standards at Del Core. ‘Whether it’s an individual or a family, this is what they leave with time and time again’. Regarding the future, Susan wants to press on with her vision of Del Core as an academy with an educational and training focus on top of a thriving business. According to her ‘more needs to be done to meet the expectations of trainees, which would be a massive boost on the sector overall’.
