As Los Angeles' South Bay is an ideal beachside indoor tanning market with a high discretionary income population, this market is considered to be highly competitive. That said, this is one of the best indoor tanning locations for a variety of reasons, including the convenient access it provides to all South Bay patrons, as well as coveted onsite parking, great street visibility, and a premium equipment offering.
The spacious salon has additional capacity and space to increase its service offerings in any number of ways. New operators may wish to modify the salons pricing strategies to attract a broader client base, add complementary day spa style services (massage, body wraps, red light anti-aging therapy), or capitalize on the space availability to promote a retail offering (e.g. swimwear, sun glasses, etc.) that could do very well near the beach. New operators may also seek to revisit the venue's staffing costs.
