Did you know The V Spot turned 10 last month! Wow, how time flies. A whole decade here in my hometown, what a pleasure it has been having so many wonderful guests walk through these doors since 2012. Some of you have been with me since day one. I have seen engagements, weddings, babies, promotions, breakups, new ventures, some have left to make new memories in new places. We have had many conversations, laughs, drinks, and sorrows. I appreciate each and every one of you-even the ones that were not pleasant. You have all taught me so much.
10 years - time to look back and reflect.
Many new people may not know where my story started. I left corporate to start something new. It seems I do that often, I may be considered a serial career changer, as I have had many. This one has been my best one. I went into unknown territory, as I had never been or worked in the beauty industry. I opened this, as I found a lack of hospitality & ambiance in the nail industry. Many salons were generic, the feel was sterile and the service mediocre. I wanted a place of retreat for us. A place to relax and be pampered. I built this baby from the ground up. All my thoughts and ideas came to fruition and it has been an amazing ride. In my first year, I was featured in In Style Magazine's yearly feature of their Beauty Black Book and was named a top nail spa in NJ. This came on its own merit without any PR or connection. Following we have been featured on Bravo & E!, Channel 11 & Channel 4, as well as some local editorial publications, local blogs as a favorite nail spa, and maintaining a 5/4 star for 10 years. It makes me happy and fulfilled to know that the experience I wanted for anyone walking through those doors was felt.
The pandemic gave us all time to slow down and reflect. During that time I realized how much of my energy went into this place. I realized how much time I did not have to enjoy my personal life. Isn’t that what it really is all about? I have many other goals I wish to accomplish and being a brick-and-mortar business was limiting. I want to take my brand in a different direction. The V Spot experience will always cater to people.
A new direction for the V Spot!
My lease was up this year and I have chosen not to renew. I have made the hard decision to close my doors to pursue new endeavors. I will miss many things about this place, but the one thing that I will miss is all of you. Our doors will officially close on August 26th, 2022.
I hope you will continue visiting us until then. I will recommend salons that I believe will fit The V Spot vibe as well as let you know where the girls' new home will be.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for choosing us to spend time with and pamper yourself for the past 10 years! The hardest part is saying Good-Bye, so it's not good-bye, its see you later!
Stay tuned for what's next!!
