WHITMIRE — Whitmire’s newest business, Sunnysides Tanning Salon, held its grand opening March 15. The new boutique style salon on 194 Gilliam St. is owned by Jeannie Fish and Oscar Avila of Whitmire.
The salon is located near the downtown area and within walking distance to several other businesses. Fish 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, and all have new and updated lighting and tanning equipment.
Fish also stressed that they abide by DHEC regulations for safe tanning by the rules. A sign-in sheet with the number of tan minutes will be checked for beginning tanners and a medication lists 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 eyewear/sunglasses will be regular stock items.
For tanning schedules and other information, Fish can be reached by cell phone at 803-944-1648. A Sunnysides Facebook page is in the near future.
