Salon for sale in Lakeland, FL (complete turn key)
 
Tanning salon for sale in north Lakeland, FL, in a busy shopping center with good traffic.

The salon is 2600 +/- square feet, with ten individual rooms (eight are being used now), plus a huge back room and a large customer lounge up front.

Everything is owned outright, with no liens or loans to pay off. We purchased it at the beginning of 2008, but we have a few other businesses, and can't devote the proper amount of time to it. Would like to sell it to someone who can care for it the way it should be.

Sale includes all of the following:
* Eight total tanning units
4 - 20 minute beginner beds
2 - 15 minute medium beds
1 - 10 minute super bed
1 - 10 minute stand up booth
* Customer list of about 2600 current and/or past visitors
* Brand new reception desk
* Reception computer system with tanning software (SunTouch)
* 42" Plasma TV mounted on wall
* All lotion bottles and packets in inventory
* Brand new customer lounge set in waiting area
* Brand new vanity area beside bathroom for customers to use
* Boxes of extra bulbs
* Full signage above salon and by the road
* Complete website
* Lots more... we'll be happy to show you everything.

This is a true "turn key" business.

Asking price is $25,000. Feel free to make an offer.

Current lease is through July, 2010.

The equipment alone is worth that, and the total cost for the buildout and equipment was just over $100,000.

Contact me at 863-670-1550 or email info@totallytanlakeland.com.

And lets get this straight...you sent me another e-mail because I CALLED YOU. If you called me back, my phone never rang and you didn't leave a message, but now you have both numbers I can be reached at. If you called my buddy Jay, he never returns calls and we gave you his # ONLY if you had stuff for him to pick up since he lives .4 of a mile away!!
I would suggest not rocking the boat since you also gave me valuable info about a competitor that closed that I can now call the landlord and set up a shop with NICE QUALITY beds with less headache!! Trust me Liberty, you don't want to compete with a 19 year tanning veteran!!

Beauty of a price??? Did you get paid to say that?? The salon's rent is $3500 a month (x12 months=$42,000) and the salon is not grossing much more than that. Without payroll or advertising (which the salon needs), I figured the salon is in the hole atleast $10,000. Plus it is appx 2500 sqft and only has 8 units. After looking, you might only fit 4 more the way it is set up. My last salon was 1800 sqft and had 16 units!!! My buddy wants to buy it and I advised him against it...he is still interested!!
Sorry Jacked...can't agree with you here!!

Rocking the boat? Where is this going? I tried contacting you by email and didn't hear back... so I posted here, the place where you initially found me at.

We know squat about the tanning business... we have several other successful businesses, and we intend to continue running those as we did before buying this salon. You know all of this already... and you also know that the two years before we bought it it made $105,000 and $90,000. We obviously aren't fit for the tanning industry, so we're selling it. If someone with your experience and know how were to take over, then I'm sure it would do much better.

I'm not sure why you are trying to devalue it and even make snide remarks to others who are posting here, even suggesting that we paid them to post.

For those playing along... my wife and I have not been hands on with this salon AT ALL. Our children have run it since basically day one. One daughter has moved on (going to pharmacy school), and the other two have now graduated high school and want to continue college in the fall. So, rather than hire someone else to come in, we've decided to sell. That's it... If you think you can make it profitable, then buy it, it's a great deal. If you don't think so, then don't buy it. And, if you want to rent out the space Planet Beach used to be in and be our direct competitor (that's the valuable information that he is referring to) then do that. We won't be here much longer anyway... either because we'll sell it, or we'll just get rid of the equipment once the lease is over next year.

Have a great day!
