Just hours after Galleria issued a press release Monday about new stores, some shuffling within the mall and a few exits, Rocco Altobelli Salons took to Facebook with an announcement of its own–curiously absent from the official list:
“Yes the rumors are true: After 37 years of being a fixture in the Gallera mall, Rocco, Dianne and Nino have taken the option of not renewing their lease…We are moving!”
The Rocco Altobelli Salon and Day Spa is slated to open in April just a block south of Galleria at 3509 Hazelton Road. Features will include a color bar, a computer bar with WiFi, a nail drying bar, and space for larger groups. Plus parking right outside the door.
It was definitely time. Rocco Altobelli is an institution, but as they in the beauty biz know all to well, even institutions need an occasional makeover. And after all these years of nail services being in a separate space on the lower level of Galleria, it will be nice to bring that piece of the business into one brand new salon.
