I guess I might try a different tact. It seems POSSIBLE that this new owner has NO idea how much work it is to run a tanning salon on her own! Let alone not knowing all the "nuances" of the customers, equipment, software, etc. If she is hiring "none of the current employees" that means that it takes more than one of you now - and you already know what you're doing!!

I think I'd play by her rules and ask if you can continue to tan there (perhaps she might let you buy your first package at a discount, but if not, I'd even pay full price). Be helpful, sweet, nice. Tell her how much you have loved working here and how great the clients are - how much she is going to love it! Ask her about her plans - and be interested. Show up to tan - maybe at the time many of your current favorite clients do? They'll be SO excited to see you, you'll carry on like old friends, and she can't help notice your great ways with the clients.......

As she takes over, mention your interest in working if she ever changes her mind and needs to hire someone. Perhaps mention it again around June 1st, after she's had a month of being slammed!!! You may just find yourself with a job back faster than you (or she!) thought.....

It's an idea - no sense burning bridges if you love the place!
