New tanning salon opens in Yeovil

A new tanning salon opened in Yeovil last month. Tanning Cove opened on Friday, April 26 and is run by first-time business owners Zoe and Cameron (27 and 28).

Zoe's sister Lee-Ann is immensely proud of them: "This is her first business with her partner. They recently had a baby, and they decided that they wanted to start their own business instead of going back to the everyday nine-to-five."

Since opening, Tanning Cove has gotten a great response from the public: "They've had a lot of support from people who use those bigger chains deciding to support family businesses."

The business has attracted clientele of all ages and from all walks of life. Lee-Anne said: "People of all ages have come in. In the last couple of weeks there's been people [coming in who are] 75 or 80 years old, and they just suffer from stiff joints, and they're finding it lovely."

Tanning Cove is open seven days a week on the West Lynx trading estate and offers both pre-booked and walk-in appointments. Customers must be 18 or older.
