It is a very hot seller especially as it works just as well as an outdoor lotion
I have never gone into walmart to check if they sell AG Accelerator (or anything else). Is it really $5 plus tax in your walmart? You can't get it that cheap on amazon and you either have to buy 3 at a time and/or have a prime membership. Who sells more of it you think walmart or amazon? Interesting.

$5 was a general statement but I know that I have customers daily that try and use an outdoor lotion in my facility which is truly the biggest concern. It is an uphill battle fighting the average consumer which is smart enough to comparison shop between salons and online. I cant and wont match online prices but I do what I can to eliminate it. I keep a lot of "hard to find" lotions. When a lotion is discontinued I will order the remaining bottles from fourseason for example today I ordered DC iced bronze couture a couple weeks ago which isnt that easy to find anywhere else. As long as my customers are A. using lotions B. making sure their lotions are for indoor use and C. using authentic products then I am happy. I'd be even happier if the online lotion business would shut down lol

Re: Cheaper Indoor Tanning Lotion?

The online business has only begun....I repeat...stop letting them use unknown lotions from the DC Groupon lotions, Ebay, Amazon, Walmart in your beds. They have to have a bed to use it in....when they can't find a place to use it they will not buy it....hence the on liners fold.
I can't buy bottles of wine at the corner liqueur store and take it into my favorite restaurant to drink or my local nightclub. Why? Because they are not stupid. I changed and I am watching my curve bend again.

We recently started carrying Emerald Bay as our cheaper line & they have been selling very quickly (better than any other cheap line we have ever tried). Especially Definitely Black, Sun Luvin', & Dark N' Dazed. Plus, they all smell awesome which I think really helps!

They've actually started to do this where I am in certain restaurants, you can bring in your own wine, you just have to pay a fee per bottle.

How do you know that they aren't putting it on at home and just telling your employees they don't use lotion?
