Seattle Sun Tan makes a mark on Enumclaw area
The booming Seattle Sun Tan operation has made inroads to Enumclaw.
Chief Executive Officer Scott Swerland has purchased eight Desert Sun locations, including the Enumclaw branch. The acquisition was the biggest link in a chain of events that tripled Seattle Sun Tan’s outlets from five to 15.
Swerland had the five original branches and has two more, in Ballard and North Bend, in the works. Added to the roster were Desert Sun locations in Enumclaw, Covington and Fife, three in the Kent area and two near Maple Valley. The Desert Sun locations were purchased from founder Maximo Ansola III.
Swerland’s rapid expansion is based on his belief that “tanning is an affordable, convenient way for people to look and feel their best,” he said.
Seattle Sun Tan outlets offer a higher-than-average number of beds (12 to 25 per location), eliminating the need for appointments.
Customers pay $25 per month for unlimited taning sessions or $50 per month for unlimited spray-on tans for those preferring to “go faux.”
Seattle Sun Tan locations are open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more information, visit www.seattlesuntan.com.
This is Part 2 of a three part in-paper Enumclaw mayoral debate between Jan Molinaro and Kim Lauk. Both are first time candidates for mayor. The incumbent, Mayor Liz Reynolds, chose not to seek a third term.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise across the U.S. and Washington and King County data show a similar trend towards more syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.
The Courier-Herald is publishing a three-part debate between Black Diamond Mayor Carol Benson and her opponent Judy Baxley. Last week, candidates answered questions concerning the city, and what they would do as mayor to address any issues. This week, Part 2, is a chance for candidates to rebut their opponent’s statements. Part 3 will wrap-up with final statements.
Bills show hundreds of residents doubled or tripled their water usage in the past two months, but many say they’ve not increased, or even decreased, their water consumption, and the city’s system must be wrong.
