Barbers campaign against gender-based violence

-as part of American Stores ‘Mother’s May’ promotion

“We are using ourselves as role models,” Seon Blair, of South Ruimveldt Gardens’ De Crib Barbershop, said yesterday. “…To show other males out there that they should pattern from us and desist from hitting, if they are hitting.”

Blair and Leyland Boucher, of the Rite Cutz Barbershop in Campbellville yesterday joined with the American Stores to give back to mothers, as part of the store’s ongoing ‘Mother’s May’ promotion.

On day three of Mother’s May promotion yesterday, women who entered the store, located at the corners of Regent and Cummings Streets, were treated to free eyebrow lining by Blair and Boucher.

Blair told Stabroek News that yesterday’s activity was a part of a string of activities to offer women a free eyebrow lining at various locations in the city, lending their support in the fight against gender-based violence.

Blair called on men struggling with abuse to seek help from both non-governmental and governmental organisations that provide such service.

With every purchase $5,000 and above, American Stores customers stand a chance to win over $300,000 in prizes during its Mother’s May’ promotion, which runs until May 31.

Customers could win the grand prize of a day trip for their mother at the Arrowpoint Resort, and other consolation prizes. Other prizes include a gift certificate from King’s Jewellery, dinner for two at Grand Coastal Inn, and a manicure and pedicure gift certificate.

“It’s our time of giving back to mothers,” said American Stores General Manager Steve Nauth. He said the promotion is the first of a few promotions lined up for the month. The drawing for the promotion will be on June 5.
