WHITMIRE — The newest business in Whitmire gives residents the opportunity to get and maintain a suntan throughout the year.
Sunnysides Tanning Salon held its Grand Opening, Saturday, March 15.
The new boutique-style salon on 194 Gilliam Street is owned by Jeannie and Oscar Avila of Whitmire. The salon is located near the downtown area and within walking distance to several other businesses. Jeannie hopes that folks will take advantage of the many packages she is offering for tanners.
“We’re open seven days per week, with a new stand up bed with high powered bulbs for quick and safe tanning,” she said.
In addition to the stand up bed, several rooms offer the traditional horizontal beds. All have new and updated lighting and tanning equipment.
Jeannie also stressed that “we abide by DHEC regulations for safe tanning by the rules” A sign in sheet with number of tan minutes will be checked for beginning tanners and a medication list with rules are posted in each tanning cubicle.
Along with various tanning products, boutique items such as Tee’s handmade purses, jewelry, checkbook covers, and eye wear/sunglasses will be regular stock items.
For tanning schedules and other information, Jeannie can be reached by cell phone at 803-944-1648. A Sunnysides Facebook page is in the near future.
