Yellowknife – The Merle Norman Cosmetics Studio is growing – again.

The Centre Square Mall business, started as a perfume kiosk in late 1996 by owner Kimberly Staples-Lakhani, will expand the size of its store – currently at 1,300 square feet – by an additional 1,000 square feet.

The increase is due to growing demand for all of the studio’s services, particularly laser and electrolysis treatment, according to Staples-Lakhani.

“We’re looking at expansion within the Centre Square Mall early this fall,” she said, although she was hesitant to specify where exactly since negotiations with the owners of the space are still ongoing.

“I don’t believe in saying anything until it’s a done deal.”

What’s clear is the new space is needed as the demand for the studio’s services – which includes hair removal and treatment of sun spots, acne and fine lines, as well as massage therapy and retail of items like perfume – grows.

“For all of our services, we can use more space,” said Staples-Lakhani. “We’ve got the staff. We’ve got the team.”
