Darth Vader to Visit Blackwood A short time ago in Blackwood town centre not far away a business invited Darth Vader to attend the opening of its new store on Saturday 18th March 2017 between 12-2pm. Rusty’s Games and Gift Store located at 54b High Street on the junction of Pentwyn Road (above Exclusive Tiles and Bathrooms) is run by husband and wife Simon & Trish Fowler. The store, which sells a wide range of vintage ‘StarWars’ toys, ‘DC Marvel’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’ merchandise, is a new aspect to their business and sits alongside their established guitar and musical instrument shop. The couple began their retail careers 14 years ago running Must Have Music in the Market Place Shopping Centre before moving onto High Street and then into Emily’s Indoor Market. Now they are back on the High Street again at the junction of Pentwyn Road. Simon said: It’s great to be back on the high street, running a business is very tough but we have survived by adapting and not been afraid to change. We still sell guitars, but alongside those we now sell the merchandise and pre-owned console games. Trish said: This new shop gives us three separate spaces for the guitars, merchandise and games. The official opening on Saturday is a big day for us and in the coming months we will also be working with the Comic Con which is happening at Caerphilly Leisure Centre on 10th June. The grand opening of Rusty’s Games and Gift Store is at 9am on Saturday 18th March 2017. Darth Vader and Spiderman…

Business Women Invests in Bargoed A local business woman Nicola Richardson has opened a new cosmetics clinic at 12 Hanbury Road in Bargoed town centre. After qualifying as a hair stylist 28 years ago, Nicola developed her career working in various salons and becoming a partner at The Barber Shop in Bargoed, before opening her first solo salon in a rented shop on Hanbury Road. Photo: Nicola and Dr Richards Recently Nicola began working with a business mentor Carl Hinder, which gave her the confidence to purchase a property a few doors away and set up HB Cosmetics. The new clinic offers a wide range of advanced cosmetic treatments including: Semi Permanent make up, Botox and fillers, which are administered by Dr Richard BDS who has also helped Nicola gain valuable experience of the aesthetics industry at London.   HB Cosmetics is also a hair and Beauty salon with a number of different stylists renting the chairs and is set to become a training academy later this year. Nicola said: As well as being an investment and creating jobs in Bargoed, HB Cosmetics offers people the chance to experience advanced beauty treatments right on their doorsteps instead of travelling to Cardiff or Swansea. In my career I have worked on ‘Miss Universe’ and ‘Miss World’ as well as gained a position with the ‘Welsh Hair Artistic Team’, but at heart I am a Trelewis girl who is happiest working in Bargoed.
