When Tiger Morrison got into the hair-care and beauty supply business, it wasn’t just to sell you stuff to make you look good because as a 20-year-veteran on personal fitness circuit, his mantra is: to look good on the outside , you have to feel good on the inside.
So when you catch him at his new store Aamiyah, on Wellington Street in Verdun, it would be appropriate to get information on more than just hair and beauty products.
“I’m always ready to offer my clients any advice or information that will make them look and feel better,” says Morrison, kno
wn across Montreal as Tiger. “So at Aamiyah, my mission goes further than selling them something for their hair or their skin, I want to give them a total makeover.”
As a matter of fact, he is setting up a program aimed at brides and bridegrooms offering them an opportunity to fine tune their bodies and get in shape while preparing for their wedding.
The recently opened store does, however, carry a wide range of supplies for families in the southwest district, who for long haven’t had such an outlet in their neck of the wood.
Tiger says he is ready to meet the needs of the wide diversity of people that frequent the Wellington street shopping strip.
“We carry supplies for both Black and white and other cultural groups in the area and our commitment to them is that if we don’t have what they want in the store, we will get it for them,” says Tiger, reaffirming the fact that Aamiyah is truly a community based business.
He added that distinguishes itself from other stores of its kind with its extensive children section.
