Hair extension company
opens in Coeur d'Alene
A Coeur d'Alene couple have opened a new store selling 100 percent human hair extensions.
Erris Hair is located at 6190 N. Sunshine St., southeast of the intersection of U.S. 95 and Hanley Avenue, in Coeur d'Alene.
The couple, Adam and Chelsea Piper, are leasing 1,200 square feet of floor space and will be the store's only employees. They opened last month.
Chelsea Piper, 21, said they will sell three types of hair extensions: pre bonded I-tip, west and clip-in.
The business also will offer wigs, both three-quarter and full; pony tails; hair extension supplies; and eye-lash extension supplies.
She said this is their first business, and they have been preparing to open for two years. Currently, they are working to get the word out about Erris Hair.
They wanted to start the business here because the market is wide open for their products.
Peak Adventures to continue
backcountry ski operations
Peak Adventures, headquartered in Cataldo, has accepted a temporary permit from the Bureau of Land Management to continue operating its backcountry ski operations in the St. Joe Mountains.
To supplement the BLM terrain, the Idaho Department of Lands has offered a land-use permit to Peak Adventures for the 2010-2011 ski season.
Peak Adventures is a backcountry skiing and snowboarding operation, which carries clients by tracked vehicles into the St. Joe Mountains for single day and overnight trips. Ryan and Carey Stanley purchased the business in October 2009.
The permit was in question for this season because of potential wolverine denning habitat.
