The Lemon Tree hair salon on Jericho Turnpike has closed.
A note on the door blamed the inability to find enough workers. “This salon has been permanently closed. I want to thank all of my customers who walked through my doors and sat in my chairs, but I cannot stay open because of an employee shortage.” It was signed “Chris/Lemon Tree Smithtown”.
Employers say that a shortage of workers has been a recurring problem since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020.
