The opening of a new tanning salon in north beaches south of downtown has created quite the buzz among residents.
The North Shore Tanning Salon opened its doors in April and is located at 534 NW 26th Ave.
The salon’s name comes from the town of Tanning Beach and it is located within the north beach town of Sunnyside.
Sunnysides residents will be able to get their tanning done at the Sunnieside Tanning Centre, located in the north-east corner of Sunnside.
There are a total of three salons in the town, with the most popular being the Sunnsides Tanning Center and the Sunniside Tannery and Shoppe.
The location is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 10 a.M. to 6 p.M., Saturday and Sunday.
There is also a large number of classes available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:30 a. and 5:30 p.
The Sunnisider is a large indoor tanning studio.
The company has been operating out of Sunnoside for over two decades and has been open since 2008.
Sunniside resident Michelle Fong said she was excited to find the new location.
She said she would be looking forward to seeing the new sunnysiders facility.
She said she has been a member of the Sunnosiders since 2007 and she is glad that the Sunniches facility is opening.
She told CBC News she appreciates the company for its work in maintaining the beach.
“I love the beach so much,” Fong told CBC.
“It’s a beautiful place, so I’m looking forward for this to be a beautiful time for us.”
Sunniesides resident Kevin Jones said he would like to see more businesses open in the area.
He said it is a great opportunity to get out and tan and to get a job.
“It’s always been a little bit of a grind, but now it’s just a whole lot more accessible,” Jones said.
“There are a lot of people who don’t have jobs and it’s great for the business to be open,” Jones added.
“The sunnies are not always going to be happy and it doesn’t always have to be that way,” Fung said.
Sunnoside resident Lisa Waugh said the salon is a good addition to the area and she would love to see other businesses in the region.
“You always see this type of business in the sunniest areas of the north shore, and I think it’s a great idea for the area to be able get more businesses,” Waugh told CBC’s On The Coast.
