With cooler months just around the corner, why not warm up and experience a Caribbean escape right here in Windsor Essex!
Get back that summer glow and treat your body to some Vitamin D with a tan from Caribbean Tanning Salon. Located at 13039 Tecumseh Road East in Tecumseh, the business has been around for about two decades.
While current Owner Yvonne Lyons just recently took over the company in July, she worked as Manager of Caribbean Tanning Salon from 2008 until 2012.
In 2012, the business was put up for sale, and while Lyons would have loved to purchase it then, she says it just wasn’t the right time financially.
“Whenever I drove by, I would tell myself that one day I would get my baby back, and now I did just that,” exclaims Lyons. “Dreams really do come true.” Lyons was flattered to hear from the former Owner that her customers missed her. “She informed me that people did not stop asking for me,” states Lyons. “She said people were very upset that I had left.”
So now, Lyons’ message to the community is short and sweet, and she’s spreading it loud and clear: “Yvonne is back!”
Back when she was Manager – and especially now that she’s the Owner – Lyons says she puts her heart and soul into Caribbean Tanning Salon, and her number one priority is customer satisfaction. And she realizes that small gestures can have a huge impact in keeping customers happy.
“We provide little extras like protective eye wear for free, while other salons make you buy them; wet wipes in the rooms; plus deodorant for men/women,” explains Lyons. “These little things go a long way. You can even say that this is what also makes us unique.” All the beds at Caribbean Tanning Salon
are Smart Tan Certified and spray tanning is also an available service.
