Re: Is a new salon a good idea?

Hey kimb3107, don't count on too much in the college group business. These kids have no money, and what they do have, they spend on partying. Their parents won't give them money to tan because of all the bad press we've gotten. These kids have become so afraid of the effects of UV, that they simply don't tan. In the last ten years, I have seen a drop in my business of almost 50%, and it isn't all because of the economy. Congrats, Good luck, and keep up the enthusiasm. As for our salon, we just spent $8000 for lamps for all of our beds. This will give us one more down season in this business, and a year from now we're closing the doors; enough is enough.
