Pet grooming New Zealand
Pet grooming New Zealand

David Clayton began selling professional quality scissors in 2007 after discovering a lack of good quality dog grooming scissors in New Zealand. Having Bichon Frise dogs, David was having the hassle and cost of driving his beloved pets into town and waiting to have them professionally groomed. He decided to look for some good quality tools so he could learn how to do it himself, however found these tools were not readily available in New Zealand.

After researching which scissors would be the best for the type of grooming David was going to do, he imported his first pair. These dog grooming scissors were perfect for the job. After a few bad haircut's people were soon asking him where he got them from. David then imported a lot of sample scissors and began selling them on Trademe. With the rate these scissors were selling, David soon realised the need for quality professional dog grooming scissors in New Zealand.

David has undertaken much research into the different components that make a great pair of scissors. Some scissors have up to 120 or more processes, so there is a vast range of prices and qualities. In learning about different scissors and their uses, David found that not only is there a lack of available pet grooming scissors, but many of the hairdressing scissors for sale out there where outrageously over priced and some people where even getting stuck with copies.

So after much research, product trialing, and consumer research, Scissor City aims to offer hairdressers, Barbers and pet groomers quality scissors at a reasonable price.
