A number of new and returning businesses are now part of the Gering retail community.
Sharon Gompert, who’s been in the hair styling business for about 12 years, opened her own salon in October. The salon is Wicked Concepts, located at 945 O St. in Gering.
From her work with The Spa at TLC, she learned there’s a big demand for styling services with larger groups, like bridal parties and birthday parties for younger girls.
Sharon said she offers facials, body waxing, all hair care services and manicure/pedicure services.
“Eventually, I’d like to expand into fashion and open a boutique in conjunction with the business,” she said. “I chose Gering because there aren’t a lot of salons here but there’s a big need.
Wicked Concepts may be reached at (308) 672-4272.
The Daily Grind Coffeehouse is also reopening soon at their new location, 1520 10th St. in Gering, just north of the China House restaurant. Owners Brad and Linda Staman have the exterior signs installed, but are still waiting on flooring, which will be followed by plumbing and electrical.
The former Sonic restaurant building on the Scottsbluff-Gering Highway, which has been vacant for almost a year, has been purchased by Cheema Investments. The company also has several rental and commercial properties in the area. Representatives said a restaurant is planned for the building, but no decision has been made as to what type or franchise. But it is unlikely another Sonic franchise will return there.
