    I worked at talk of the town for nearly 10 years! This hasn't come as a surprise and no one was poached to go to another salon! The owner who is now sunning himself in Australia hasn't cared about the place for a long time. I feel sorry for his dad who made that place what it was in it's heyday. I was so happy to work there everyone was really lovely and I made friends for life. I left In march as I saw this coming. people were leaving because of how it was being run and because of other issues not because of poaching. I say good luck to them. As for the people who stayed till the bitter end and got totally screwed over by the so called boss. I hope they manage to pick themselves up and move on. They will be better of out of there I know I was. The place was so run down and shabby and needed attention and the poor customers paying top salon prices till the end! It's sad that this has happened. But it just goes to show how some people don't care who they have to screw over to get where they want to be in life
    Well said, couldn't agree more.
    I know a few people who worked there and the owner who now resides in the land of oz is to blame for this.
    As with all these things it's the poor workers who suffer while the owner suns himself.
    Good luck to all."

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.”
