As some of you know I am going to be adding a leg tanner to my salon for the upcoming year. I just found out that Heartland is going to have a leg tanner available at Nashville that should come in under the price of the leg tanner currently on the market. I have not seen the new one yet, only heard bits and pieces. Heartland is going to have the prototype done by mid Sept and since I live only about an hour or so away I am going to take a trip down there and look at it. Hopefully I will have pics and prices and specs to give out about that time. Just thought anyone else who was in the market for a leg tanner would be interested.

Do these leg tanners really generate enough business to justify having one?

The people who have bought one of the leg tanners on the market now seem to be very happy with the unit. We have been mentioning it to people who tan with us now and they all love the idea of a unit designed to tan only their legs so they can have good color on them. They do not mind paying seperate for it and only being able to do that service only for the day. The unit if nothing else puts you on the cutting edge of what is new in the way of services for your customers.

I can see it now.... But I want more on my legs today. Why can't I do both? people will try to convince you to break the rules.

I guess the good thing is that they can tan everyother day in a bed and use the legs on off days. I can see this as being a good thing. unless you are in a state that regulates the 48 hour policy

We have been on a build up for the last couple of years in terms of adding upscale beds. We have added more high end VHR beds, stand ups, then HP and now sunless units. We will add a leg tanner in November. The reason we did this was simple. If we could position ourselves as a step up salon, a salon that was thought of at the top of the food chain when people thought of tanning salons we stood to make more money. Simple as that. The leg tanner is just a piece in the puzzle, no more and no less. Our volume is up a ton, our $/tanner is up a ton and every single piece we have added has more than paid for itself. We are waiting for delivery of our second sunless unit as we continue to push out the base beds and add more steroid units.

Then again, I could be wrong.
