Re: HOW WAS 2012?

You have to realize and take them with a grain of salt, most of the stats (good and bad), that are posted on forums.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

I opened a salon mid year in 2012 for "fun"! Turns out not only do I have my "real job" but also the salon.
It did better than expected but now I have 3 employees I need to pay for.
Hope everyone does well in 2013.... cant wait for it to get busy and see what its really like.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

$350 would be great!! I feel good when I make $100 bucks in a day!
We are the lowest in town- almost by half!! It's so hard getting people to try us out! Once they are there they love it... getting them there is a problem

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

We got cranking earlier this year thanks to the Eagles being dreadful. Normally its playoff time each weekend might as well be closed those weekends.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

Down all around, over saturated market. Now its even more over saturated with 10 plus zoom tan coming in, no more tanning under 16 at all. keeping my fingers crossed for 2013 but not getting my hopes up.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

According to these stats, 33 of 50 repondents or 66% of you say the # of tanners is same or down over last year. A bad sign for the industry as a whole. The total market is shrinking. A whole generation of tanners is being scared away.
