KUWAIT CITY, June 19: Member of the Board of Directors of Kuwait Salons Association (KSA) Jenan Al-Faris said many salons for women have a subscription system for their clients through which they provide services regularly, reports Al-Rai daily. She disclosed the administrations of salons deal with new variables in receiving customers through these strategies — freezing the subscription period until vaccination, issuing vouchers with the value of the remaining subscription to be used at a later time for those who do not want to be vaccinated as they will not be able to benefit from the services provided by salons, and cash-back (refund) for the subscription value covering the period that will be canceled for the unvaccinated customers.
She urged the government to increase the number of people scheduled for vaccination daily, as many salon workers registered for vaccination more than four months ago but they have not been vaccinated until now. Reliable sources from the health club sector said the decision to prevent those unvaccinated from entering the clubs will affect the sector’s account once again as it has become burdened with expenses and debts, but the sector is ready to deal with the issue in order to protect the interests of customers.
Sources added the practical option is to freeze subscriptions until vaccination, but this will be done as per the request of customers. Sources pointed out the decision will affect the cash flows of health clubs in light of the continuation of their obligations; affirming they support the decision provided the government increases the vaccination rate to achieve community immunity within a month, while allowing those who received one dose of the vaccine to enter health clubs.
