As we head towards 2002, with the the US economy in a downturn and fighting a war aginst terriorist, indoor tanning product manufacturers need to protect our customers (tanning salon owners) profits.

I challange the major tanning product manufacturers to end indoor tanning product diversion. I ask them to follow the lead of Soakin' Up The Rays (R) to:

Stop selling to Beauty Suppliers.
Stop selling to Retail Stores - Anywhere.
Stop selling to Home Tanners.
Stop selling to Distributors that supply Flea Markets, Internet Outlets, and other diversion sources.
Do not own Tanning Salons.

We need to protect tanning salon owner profits! Now, is the time to do it!

Amen.

A good customer arrived the other night with a brand new bottle of Matahari. I commented on how much I loved their products and she proceeds to explain how she bought a bottle for herself and one for her husband at the price I would have to charge for one! I was in no position to admonish for I am a bargain shopper also. The best I can summon up is "You go girl" in a very deflated tone. Telling people that they don't know what they're getting sounds pretty lame after a while and I end up coming across like a dejected sales person unable to meet a quota.

Re: Now is the time to protect tanning salon owners from indoor tanning product diver

I say this.... First if they get it off the net I say, ohhh you never know what you are getting. If they get it at WalMart I say, they can sell it cheaper than me, but when I go out of business, I doubt WalMart will put in tanning beds...............

Re: Now is the time to protect tanning salon owners from indoor tanning product diver

That is an old post. But I havent been selling any U.S. lotion for over 6 mos now and doing great. I sell Euro lotions someone asked before what was euro lotions. I sell Sunmaxx and Turbo Brown both are not on any ebay or diversion sites in the U.S. and they work great. I get the products in 2 days (and thats with customs checking the products out) and I make the same profit.

Best thing for me is that there not pvt line. I havent found any good pvt line lotions out there yet.

It is an old post, but what I really liked about it was that "As we head towards 2002, with the the US economy in a downturn and fighting a war aginst terriorist" nothing has changed!
