I say go to Bella tanning. They are a pretty good place to tan. They are right past TN High and owned by a nice older couple and its clean and quick--which is what I want when I tan. They have just as many beds and prices are similair.
guess what

I heard Sun Tan City is coming to Bristol very soon. If that is tru it will close all other salons. It's a chain, too much competition.

I have been in Electric Sun before the change of owners and since the new owner took over. I feel that she is very friendly, always speaks as I come in and thanks me as I leave. I have not seen the changes that everyone is so concerned about.
The place is super clean and the staff all appears to be the same. I also feel that if you need to talk about someone you need to look in the mirrow and see what you can change about yourself, this is no way for grown adults to act.
To former ES of B Tan Fan, if you say you are from the south then what part of nascar, motorcycles, amd sports makes her such a bad person???

hey t. i didn't say it made you a bad person. CA Girl and me just agree that you don't have any taste. there's nothing wrong with with that stuff. it just doesn't belong together all at once like your hair, clothes, and personality.

They are merly stating an opinion. You have have yours and decided to spread your words of wisdom on us so there's reall not much difference.

As for the south comment. Ever think they are ladies and have other taste. There is another thing the South was famous for "slavery". Since we are from the South does that mean we all have to be a fan of that sad time in our history as well?

Get a life and spend some time in front of your own "mirrow"...;-)

To get a life: you are taking this way to seriously. If people arent happy with a business in today's world they will post about it somewhere online. Being from the south has nothing to do with someone having an opinion of not lking a business. You should not personally attack someone, or suggest something as sensitive as slavery, simply because they dont like the same tanning salon as you.

It is definitely not as happy and friendly as it use to be that's for sure.

I have tannied there for years and I am even on the bank draft program. I am so sad to know Debby sold the business. She was always so welcoming and sweet. It will never be the same there again. Even though the beds are great, I don't know if I will continue to go there. I am glad to see Brittney is still there and the other girls. I hope the new owner don't make many changes. I miss the family atmosphere, it seems cold & too tense now. A tanning place is supposed to be fun. Guess we will see.

Electric sun is a great business, I don't think she will change things & I know the previous owners would not like it getting trashed because they would want it to stay a great business for the community.

To all the hatters of the owners, you have to understand that taking over something like this has to be hard to do. I mean, the new owner has cleaned this place up so good and has been nice each and every time I have been in there and seen her.
I will have to say, I have been there at 8 when they was to be open, and the girl opening up has been late more than three times. I would like to talk to the new owner about this before long. Because this will end up making me late for my job.
I will keep going to Electric Sun in Bristol Va an will keep bringing all my friends and telling everyone about how great it is now

I agree with Fl guy, it has to be hard taking over a business, but I also think that change can be a good thing. It takes time to build a relationship with every customer. The previous owners had it for years, give the new owner a chance. I've only been there a few times since the new owner took over, but she spoke to me, the place was very clean, and the girls that work there are still the same including the previous owners daughter, so not much difference to me. As far as being unprofessional,what is that based on because i think it is more professional now then it was with a daycare in it. What is so funny is that when i came across this forum I saw a previous one from Feb. 2011 where several people were bashing the sourbeers for being snobby and making fun of the owner for acting like a teenager, so that just goes to show you that you just can't please everyone. Change is good, if nothing else, at least the new owner remembers to turn the bed on for you and you don't have to get dressed and go back to the front to tell them to turn it on.

you get a life, slavery? r u kidding me? u were dropped way 2 many times as a baby.
big sausage, u must b joking? with that name? u wish & whatever u have 2 tell urself, potted meat.
fi guy & wow, i know u r hillbillies who can't get off ur mama but get off of brittany, debbie, & the sourbeer family. no wonder u like the new owner so much. ya'll have a lot in common.
the new owner is rude, tacky, & trashy. she has no personality or taste. sucks at customer service. she wants to hide as much money as she can. & start saying cheese if u do tan there bc she put in cameras. & that's great. she must think that every1 is as dishonest as her over permed processed hair, puffy blown up face, raggedy voice self.
wow

i like the previous owners and the new owner,i really don't see much difference in the business, it is a very nice, clean tanning salon and i love to tan there. I think this bashing is uncalled for. I don't feel like I said anything bad, i was just saying there have been previous forums about electric sun in 2011, so regardless of who owns it you will always have people trying to cause trouble. this is just not the place, if someone hates it that bad, then they should go somewhere else.

Well thank the lord the staff hasn't changed much but as for the new atmosphere there it's like a funeral home there and smells like it too. 1. No freaking candles to make it smell nice anymore. 2. No water to sell the customers because it's so darn hot in there. I hv to go next door to get something cold to drink. 3. The staff use to laugh and joke with customers, wait, not many customers left to tan there since she bought it. 4. Now I hear about cameras well that's a definite no go. Is there sound that comes with those cameras? Is she making a porno flick and watching as we undress? 5. My whole fam damnly tans there and guess what? Now they won't that I can promise you !!!! You go into a convenient store you expect to be watched on camera but not a place where you tan and tan naked. Oh no cameras will not do. I am telling everyone I know about them. Smile you're on Electric Sun Candid Camera. NOT ANY FREAKING MORE I'M NOT. BYE BYE. I won't be letting you see me or my butt anymore. You creeping peeping Tom

Well early this spring my appt. was always at 8am we the customers would wait in the parking lot till Brittany would decide to show up 15 minutes late with baby in tow. I was always late to work. No need to complain because her mom did nothing. Then she would not start the bed on top of being late. I would go up to tell her only to find her always putting on makeup. Not even ready for work to begin with. Then another lady started opening and was always ready to open on time,cut on our beds and wasn't pampering herself in the mirror. Then she was gone only to be replaced again by late again Brittany. If you came during the day. The owner was asleep in the babies room. Who ever worked with them and they are NICE PEOPLE but workers or cleaner they are not , I would hv to wait till a bed was cleaned or whatever. Who ever works with them is doing the work I hv seen it many times in there and they had a great staff always friendly. Good beds. But you can't let your mgr. do as they please. Good luck. New owner. Don't hire family. Unless you treat them the same as the rest. Oh loose the cameras though. Not a nice thing.
My opinion

Yes sometimes she was late but never more than 3 or 4 minutes. I was never late for work because I didn't push my time. I really like her, just a new mom trying her best I guess. I think the owner had some problems with one of the older workers there this spring. She was a good worker but was stealing from them. I liked her she was nice but never trusted her for some reason. Pretended to be a friend but taking product and money. I gave her cash one time and just payed it on the counter and I didn't see her put it in the cash drawer. All the staff was friendly and the place always clean. I liked everyone there, but I don't like the ideas of cameras. As far as the owner not working, I think she was the baby's sitter and stayed at work most of the time. I think she sold the business to take care of the baby at home. Very nice family and good Tanning Salon. Haven't met the new owner, but I agree, loose the cameras not good for business. I will go back next spring.

Electric sun used to be so great! I love mark and Debbie so much and decided to give the new owner a chance. Little did I know that it was the worst decision I ever made. The new owner, tennille, I a country redneck hick who rides mototrcycles and thinks its cool. Well it's not. She looks like a who from dr seus and has poodle hair. She is the biggest bitch and thinks she needs to be there 100% of the time. The girls who work there, who I have connected with on a personal level, had said that nothing was going to change. Well all of their attitudes have changed. They are no longer happy. I have noticed that tennille always walks out of the salon when she is on a personal call and locks her door when she leaves her office. She's very paranoid and dumb. She has no idea how to run a business. And on top of that, her husband is a complete creep. They are both redneck as hell and need to go back to wherever the ell they came from. She is just a wanabe salon owner. She refuses to take advice from anyone that trys to help her. She is a stupid stubborn redneck hick. So take your hokie shit and get the fuck out of Bristol

This is getting completely out of hand. The previous owners sold it, apparently to someone they liked since their daughter is still working, and the new owner bought and paid for it, which im sure wasnt cheap. So, get over it and if you don't like it there anymore, go somewhere else and stop bashing people. Most others suck anyway. Now, everyone get a life and move on to another topic.

If Sun Tan City comes to Bristol it doesn't mean it will close out all the other salons. Have you ever seen their prices?
