  • "Some of the staff were aware of what was happening as I'd heard the rumour at least six weeks ago, when a friend was told by a 'senior stylist' but my poor hairdresser was completely in the dark. It was obviously on its way out as it was getting shabbier by the week. It's a shame, but at least the new salon will hopefully be more modern."

This Is Wiltshire: Talk of the Town on Devizes Road Talk of the Town on Devizes Road

LONG-established salon Talk of the Town will close its doors for the final time today after allegedly going into liquidation.

The Devizes Road business, which has been running since 1968, offered hair and beauty treatments. The store’s management did not want to discuss the problems they’d encountered but confirmed that the salon will close for good at 5.30pm this evening.

However, several customers suggested that the company’s staff had been poached to work at a new Old Town salon.

One customer, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I’d been told by my hairdresser that the old owners had bought the old running shop in Old Town near the car park and were setting up a new hair salon there.

“Apparently a lot of the staff are moving over there. I’ve been going to Talk of the Town for years to get my hair cut, it’s a shame.”
