Beaches Tanning Salon may not be a new fixture in
, but there is a lot of new things happening inside. Former patrons and new owners Amy Stagg and Lee Zuck purchased the business last spring and have been busy putting their own touches on it ever since.
“I worked at a bank as a supervisor,” says Zuck. “Amy was a stay at home mom and we both tanned here. I found out [the former owner] was leaving and I’ve always wanted to have my own business. When this opportunity came up we thought, ‘We’re going to do it.’”
The women have expanded the hours of the salon, purchased a new tanning bed and created a new, Mexican sun logo. In addition to themselves, they also hired four new employees.
“It’s been wonderful,” says Zuck of the community’s response to the change to the salon. “Our customers have been great. We love serving the public, and our staff is very friendly and helpful.”
According to Zuck, though the women are busy building their first salon, they would love to expand in the future with a second location.
“I’m not sure where,” says Zuck, “but probably a small town like Mason. “Mason is a great town. The people here are wonderful.”
