You wanna know what would be a really great thread?! "Ten Basic Tips to running a profitable tanning salon". I guess y'all will just have to wait for my book to publish; or you can catch Mike Jones' puppet show every Sunday at the "Pimimpin' is Easy" social gathering at his church. Good luck out there. -Belvy

Re: Ten basic tips to opening a salon.

I already have a small nail salon business with my daughter and we are considering buying a tanning salon that is for sale in the same neighborhood and combining the two.Now my daughter seems to think it might be cheaper if we rent a new space and start from scratch I'm not so sure anyone have any advice on this? I could use all the help I can get

Re: Ten basic tips to opening a salon.

It would save overhead down the road to combine both businesses into one location.
