Sport Clips Opens Newest Location in Carol Stream; Guy-Friendly, Hair-Cutting Franchise Expanding Rapidly Across the U.S.

CAROL STREAM, Ill. -- Sport Clips, one of the newest franchise businesses to enter the Chicagoland area, opened its latest location on Saturday, May 7, 2005, in Carol Stream, Ill. at 537 South Schmale in the Home Depot Center, just east of Auto Zone at Geneva and Schmale Roads. With the opening of the Carol Stream location, Sport Clips will sport eight locations in the Chicagoland area, and nearly 250 locations nationwide.

Dignitaries from the Carol Stream Chamber of Commerce, Village of Glen Ellyn, Village of Carol Stream, City of Wheaton, the local high schools and park districts, and members of the local media attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony. "Sport Clips is quickly becoming a franchise phenomenon," says John Kohler, Northern Illinois Developer for Sport Clips. "We feel that the Sport Clips concept fills a basic need for a comfortable place that men and boys can go to get their hair cut. Now, guys can have a place of their own, instead of their sisters', wives', mothers' or girlfriends' salon." Each Sport Clips contains sports memorabilia, sports-themed decor, a big-screen TV in the waiting area, and "guy-smart" stylist's stations, each featuring a television tuned to sports programming.

Every Sport Clips has specially-trained Stylists who stay current with the latest in men's and boys' fashions and who are skilled in dealing with the unique challenges guys face with their hair. In addition to great haircuts, Sport Clips offers All-Star Massages, consisting of an old-fashioned hot towel treatment and soothing scalp massage.

Now with nearly 250 locations nationwide, Sport Clips is considered to be one of the hottest concepts in the hair industry, having been included in the prestigious Entrepreneur Magazine "Franchise 500" for the past five years consecutively. Focused on being the place where "Guys Win," Sport Clips features a convenient "Your Call" pricing system where you can look like a quarterback, but spend like a place kicker! Sport Clips features an odor-free environment -- no perms, colors or acrylic nail smells. No ladies in curlers, no soap operas on the TVs. Neck trims are complimentary between cuts, and haircuts include a shampoo and are reasonably priced at only $12.95 for men and $9.95 for kids 12 and under. Sport Clips has a convenient "no appointment necessary" policy and is open every day. For more information on Sport Clips, check out www.sportclips.com.
