Tired, incase you didn't know it, gambling is legal in Texas so I doubt you will make any money there. The biggest illegal business in Texas is drugs..

tired, The title of this board is "Barberton Tanning Salon Serves as Front for Gambling House" that is why I refered to gambling being legal in Texas! But the fact that you said "NOT EVERYTHING HE DOES IS ILLEGAL" says a lot! I do not know the owner of Midnight Rayz but for some reason this is the most commented story in the Norton Forum and that's why I keep reading it..Then you set yourself up so that everyone can see the type of people that are associated with Midnight Rayz. Now we have one of the men charged and convicted of illegal gambling being accused of taking drugs across multiple state lines! If you don't want people to know all your business..stop telling it to us!

What bothers me most is the people who have been ripped of for wanting a tan. This is the second time I have paid in advance just prior to the place shutting it's doors. Both times the companies, I feel, knew they would be shutting down, yet they took my forty bucks anyway.

The first time was about two years ago maybe, in Acme Plaza on Manchester Rd. A nice tanning/cellular shop owned by ..... a policeman. He took my forty bucks, I got to tan once.

Now midnight rayz was the coolest tanning place, I loved it, and I purchased a new package, evidently after all the legalities began. They should have told me. They should have let me pay per tan. It's like the Carousel Dinner Theater.... selling next years memberships in December, while knowing full well they are closing their doors in January.

I will admit, I thought they may have had machines in the back, but I was unaware that the two businesses were related. I thought someone else had a business back there. You could say that it doesn't matter..... like a landlord.... if someone is running drugs out of a house you own it's the landlord's problem..... they lose the house. Well that's funny, because I don't see Coventry Plaza being confiscated, and certainly the landlord was aware of gambling. I also don't see AMHA boarding up their buildings due to drugs. Once again, those with money or power don't seem subject to the rules and laws.
whatever

if you look there is a sign on the door the tanning has been sold and will be reopening in a couple of weeks..
they will be moving some time soon to a new location...all packages are still useable when they open back up under new ownership...

I stop by this salon every day to see if they are opened back up and every day the place is still dark and locked up tight. I never seen a sign on the door saying it's sold or how to contact the new owner. I called the cos board and they said it is still owned by Raymond Holley. I am going to call the prosecuter and see what can be done about them stealing my money since there is no way for me to contact any of the owner's, old or new!! Consumer's have rights and this place literally stole my money from me and I want it back!! If the place was sold wouldn't there be a different phone number to call? I gave the owner the benefit of the doubt and now there is no doubt at all that me and everyone else that bought tanning package's there got ripped off! I think everyone that got ripped off by this guy should contact the better business bureau and file a complaint with them and the barberton prosecutor.$42.00 might not be a lot of money to some but I work hard for my money and I WANT IT BACK!!!
whatever

Is this really the way to treat customers? If I were this person and was treated like this I would not go back except to get my refund.

Did you know that tanning can greatly contribute to a person's chances of melanoma the most deadly form of skin cancer. Any idiot that thinks that tan looks so great on them should take a look at people with melanoma--better yet visit the graveyard. Wise up and save your money and yourself.

October and November have come and gone and now it's the middle of December and I'M STILL WAITING for Midnight Rayz to open back up! What's the deal? I'm starting to believe all the things that have been written on here about this place and the way it was being operated!
