I am not the same salon I was 9 years ago. I have done many updates in those nine years, like increasing my bed count and mix from 11 units to 20 total. I have tried many different things, to increase my sales, and I'm not just sitting on my hands. Even with everything I have tried, my sales continue to decrease every year. I'm thinking of also decreasing my bed count, as I certainly don't need more then 5-8 beds. Anybody in the market for some old, junky tanning beds? lol
