PLYMOUTH — Think you need a tan? There’s a new way to get some rays.
Malibu Tanning opened Thursday in the Kroger shopping plaza in Plymouth.
Owner Scott Strefling said that this his ninth salon — the others are in South Bend, Osceola, Elkhart, Granger, and Goshen.
“We are trying to expand, and we thought this would be the perfect location for us,” said Strefling.
The salon is offering free tanning for their first three weeks of being open.
“There’s no strings attached,” said Strefling. “You can come in every day if you want to.”
There are 18 beds in the salon, with several different options available. Strefling said that he is not worried about competing with the other tanning salons in town.
“We are just going to let the brand and the salon speak for itself,” said Strefling. “I’ve been doing this for more than 13 years now.”
Four employees currently work at the salon, but Strefling said he will hire several more, depending on customer response. To apply, interested individuals should visit the Website, www.malibu-tanning.com
