I have been a customer at Always August Tanning for about a year. Although I am not a huge tanner, I can definitely say that Always August has everything that a tanning salon needs.
Every time I came into the salon after booking my appointment, I always had friendly and knowledgeable staff greeting me and letting me know that my tanning bed is ready for me to use.
All staff at Always August Tanning are all Smart Tan certified, so be assured that you are in safe hands.
Also, what I like about Always August is that when I first walked in, I did not have a high pressure sales person trying to sell me the most expensive package. Instead, I got the best deal possible with my student discount. Being a student, I am very picky about how I spend money, but I like Always August, and I will be a returning customer.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Melanie Neumann, the owner of Always August Tanning, while I was passing time before my appointment.
AVIVA:How long has Always August Tanning been in business?
MELANIE NEUMANN: Two years in October of 2010
AVIVA:What do you believe sets you apart from other tanning salons?
MN: Our business model is based upon all the things that I was looking for in a tanning salon. I have a customer service background and I like to give customers what they want. I believe it is important to keep customers satisfied and I will go out of my way to do so. I base my whole business on looking at it through the customers' eyes.
AVIVA: What are your prices like and what kinds of specials do you offer?
MN: Our prices are about average/middle ground. We are not the cheapest, but at the same time affordable. There are discounts for students, mall staff, and ongoing monthly specials that are different every month.
AVIVA: What other products and services do you offer to your customers?
MN: Spray tanning, airbrush (no UV rays), tanning accessories, UV tooth whitening, and everything else that's related to tanning.
I would like to thank Melanie for her time in answering my questions about her salon.
