Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
YOU'RE IT Ridgefield Nail Bar!
Three questions with the manager of Ridgefield Nail Bar, Clare Ferrandino.
Why did you start your business?
Our family has been in Ridgefield for three generations and we know the importance of a tight-knit community as well as the importance of a family business. We started this business as a means for individuals to come in to rewind and relax after a long day. Our main goal is that you feel welcomed and enjoy the spa experience.
Best-selling product or service?
Our best-selling service is the gel manicure and pedicure, as well as the Mediterranean pedicure. First and foremost, we want to ensure customers of their safety and our cleanliness when it comes to sanitizing our tools. Because of the fact that UV rays have been shown to harm one's health, we use gloves that protect the rays from harming our clients. We also offer a wide variety of organic polishes.
The gel manicure and pedicure is one of our best-selling services because it lasts for up to 2 weeks, whereas a regular manicure may only last a few days. Our Mediterranean pedicure is a therapeutic treatment and is designed to relieve tired, overworked feet while infusing legs with moisturizing sea extracts and rejuvenating botanicals transcending you to your quiet space. We treat our clients as royalty, as they should be treated.
How many people do you employ? Any youth or seniors from the community?
