'Beauty & Wellness Weeks' Event Kicks off April 28 in Berkeley Heights


BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - When you’re out and about in downtown Berkeley Heights between April 28 through May 12, you may notice that people look more relaxed and attractive than usual. And you’ll be right. Twenty-nine Berkeley Heights businesses are uniting to offer the area’s first-ever “Beauty & Wellness Weeks.” Gyms and chiropractor/massage businesses, hair and nail salons, and jewelry sellers and florists are extending special offers and services to attract new customers and reward loyal patrons. The theme, “Be Your Best Self,” conveys the physical and mental benefits of feeling healthy and looking good.

“Our downtown has evolved into a mecca for high-quality service businesses,” said Julie Lloyd, Chairperson of the Downtown Beautification Committee, which is organizing the event in cooperation with local business owners and the Suburban Chamber of Commerce. “We want to draw attention to how these businesses can help workers, parents, and seniors manage stress, look fabulous, and feel better about themselves.”
