SCUGOG: Under the Sun tanning, at 1869 Scugog St. in Port Perry, is inviting everyone to their grand opening of their store this Saturday, March 12.
There will be cake served at the location throughout the business day, which runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
As well, there will also be a limited supply of free samples of the lotions that are used at the business.
Under the Sun is also holding a grand opening contest. From March 12, until Saturday, April 2, people will have the chance to enter to win an LG Smart television, a gift pack with lotions, or a dinner for two. The more minutes you buy at the shop, the greater chance you will have to win. See in store for details.
Yvonne Miller of Under the Sun said that there will be plenty of informational materials about tanning on hand to help people make the best decision for them.
“There is a negative perception, but that is because people are not educated. When they are educated, they will realize that tanning indoors can be a wise choice.”
Ms. Miller added that all of the employees at Under the Sun are Smart Tan certified. She also stressed that if Under the Sun doesn’t have the type of lotion that the customer would like, that they are willing to get it.
Ms. Miller wanted to also assure customers that they run a very clean business, stating that they sterilize all of the beds and the floor.
Owner Andrew Miller, Yvonne’s son, said that they are looking to create a relaxed, yet fun atmosphere.
“It's going to be very fun. We try to keep it energetic in here and we play some enjoyable music, and are also here to provide information on smart tanning."
Ms. Miller said that the customer experience is going to be very unique at Under the Sun.
“We offer a smart alternative for customers who would like to tan,” she said.
The business will be open from Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. until 9 p.m., on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
