Popular La Clery Barber shop, the Grooming Club, was burglarised some time last night.
A spokesman for the Grooming Club told the Times that a television set was among the items that were stolen.
The incident occurred as the business establishment, in collaboration with the Caribbean Barber and Beauty Academy, was about to launch a six month promotion that would have seen some 100 persons from the community get haircuts for $1 on Wednesdays between 2pm and 6 pm.
The $1 promotion was expected to target mainly children from the surrounding primary schools and community.
When contacted the owner of the Grooming Club, who is currently away from Saint Lucia on business, said the burglary is a major setback.
He disclosed that 13 students from the Barber Academy were eagerly awaiting the promotion and more than 50 school children were scheduled to begin arriving at the shop come Wednesday, March 8, 2017.
