It's never a good day when we lose a popular local business. One that cares not only about its customers, but the entire community. It's understandable that after all these years that the family would have to step away at some point. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision for DeeAnn, but we're happy for her! Be sure to stop by before it's too late. They'll close the salon on July 31st, 2022.

To all my loyal customers past and present I’m announcing my retirement. And with that said also comes the end of an Era. Oasis Tanning will be closing its doors for the last time as of July 31st, 2022. Tommy & I started this business from nothing to what it is now & I want to preserve this legacy in my dear Tommy’s Memory. Those of you who have minute packages & monthly packages need to come in to use those up in the next 45 days. Any questions or concerns you may have please call the salon. Thank you & appreciate you for doing business with us all these years & I will miss each & every one of you! This was an awesome ride, and this wasn’t an easy decision. Thanks again for all the love & support you have shown us these past 38 yrs of business! DeeAnn Rice (owner)
