  The Shops at Meridian Ranch - more new shops
  By Lindsey Harrison

   Get Clipped
   Get Clipped is a veteran-owned barber shop moving to 11856 Stapleton Drive at The Shops at Meridian Ranch from its current location near Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Owner Dawn Guggenbiller has been a hairstylist for more than 20 years, and her new business partner, Mark “Bull” Whitaker is a retired major with the United States Air Force, she said.
   “Falcon is just a booming area, and we are excited to bring our hair-cutting techniques, beard-trimming and facial hair expertise out to the area,” Guggenbiller said.
   Aside from the services Get Clipped will provide, Guggenbiller said the shop will also carry Vintage Grooming products for beards. Vintage is veteran-owned and based in Colorado Springs.
   “We are pushing for a soft opening on October 30, although we will hopefully be able to open sooner,” Guggenbiller said.
   The Purple Toad Social Tap & Grill
   Construction is well under way at the Purple Toad Social Tap & Grill, located at 11870 Stapleton Drive. Brothers and co-owners Chuck and Heath Schafer each have more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant and night club industry. They were born and raised in Colorado Springs.
   The Purple Toad will be a family owned and operated business, with plans to provide a high-quality family dining experience and also sponsor the local high school sports teams, Schafer said.
   “We decided to call it a ‘social’ tap because we want people to come and be social,” Chuck Schafer said. “Our focus will be on reasonably priced but really good food, and service is a major priority.”
   The Purple Toad will serve a variety of foods, including gourmet hamburgers, wings, salads, wraps, steaks and pizzas straight from the pizza oven, he said.
   “You will not have to leave the community to get really good food,” Schafer said.
   The restaurant will be open the beginning of September, possibly by the first if everything goes well, he said.
   Haley J’s Boutique
   Located at 11874 Stapleton Drive, Haley J’s Boutique will carry boutique-style clothes in a variety of sizes, from young girls to mature women to plus sizes, said owner Lisa Kane. “I bring a little bit of more of the relaxed Colorado style, bohemian style, comfy style but still stylish,” she said. “It will be a lot of stuff you do not find anywhere else out here.”
   As a Falcon resident, Kane said she understands the need for a different type of clothing store option in the area, which is why she felt The Shops at Meridian Ranch was a good fit for her boutique.
   In addition to clothing, Haley J’s will carry accessories like purses, decorative pillows and other household decor and items, Kane said.
   “We are also going to be giving back to the community,” she said. “We will pick a charity every month to help provide for the women in our community like battered women or women in shelters. We will have a clothing drive for people to drop off their clothes, and we will take them to a different charity every month.”
   Kane said the goal is to open Haley J’s doors at the end of August or the beginning of September.
