After nearly six years in her Colorado City shop, Changes, Jeanette Garman is taking her shop on the road. Garman hosted an open house, in the parking lot of the Colorado City post office on Wednesday, January first, to show off her spiffy new bus that she and husband, Mike converted into a hair salon.

The Changes Hair Care Mobile Salon is fully equipped with shampoo sink, styling station, dryer chair, and a wheel chair lift for handicap access. The bus is equipped with two furnaces to keep the area nice and cozy, has a custom built water storage tank and totally self contained for waste water. Garman says her new shop was a Colorado Springs Metro disability bus in its earlier life. She purchased the bus in February 2019 and stripped it down, put in a new floor, built the water storage area, secured the furnishings for travel, and ta-da her bright, roomy new shop was created. Garman reported a good turnout for her "open bus" and was thrilled at the support of her customers.

Garman credits her dad for planting the seed of an idea to go mobile. It seems she may have hit upon a happy solution, instead of paying rent, she is now able to invest her money in her own business asset. After researching ways she could mobilize, she decided on a disability bus. Garman is excited to be able to continue serving her established customers, as well as traveling to other areas and servicing nursing and group homes. Although Garman does not plan to travel every day, she stated, " It is amazing how much the world opened up by being able to be mobile".
