How many are increasing prices this year? With increasing prices on everything from gas to supplies, is it a jump you are going to take?

We have started increasing prices already. We've upped some lotions already. No one seems to have a problem with it. I guess everyone expects it with the way our economy is now. We are the lowest price in town already, so they are still paying less than the big chain prices. We will also be offering a new "Island Hopper Membership". Members can pay $24.99 and be enrolled for the whole year and they are exclusively entitled to specials we run throughout the year, 15% off lotion of the month, 10% off any bottle, 1/2 off upgrades, monthly drawings and email coupons.

We raised our prices on Aug 1st, we put in new units and raised it then. So far no one has really said anything negative (I think when they see that you are upgrading and not just pocketing the money they appreciate it). We try to add something new every year.

Sounds about right. I would put a time limit on it though. 1 or 2 months!
