People don't realize that it is to expensive
in the city, and elsewhere. The city just advertized that they made $1.3 million dollars of tickets for the city.
You go out to eat, you have to pay for parking, food, and 6% sales tax on your food. everything just keeps going up-except for peoples pay.

I think their closing has more to do with the fact that they suck as a salon and spa and less to do with the state of the economy.

Aren't we all jumping the gun, just a bit? The sign is just as consistent with a family emergency or other temporary crisis as with a closure. Why not wait til the patient is dead before publishing the obituary?

I will miss Inizio Spa. I heard that The Cutting Edge in Chelmsford will honor your gift cards. :) Double check but I think I heard that.

Oh my God! You're kidding! You actually have to PAY for your food when you go out to eat!!? When did this start happening? Sales tax??!! What is that?? Parking garages are free anymore?? Don't the owners of these garages know that they should be humanitarians and not charge anything? Damn it!! And what about these pesky supermarkets? I went in to one yesterday and got 5 lbs. steak, 3 gallons of milk and some snacks. They wanted me to PAY for it? Can you believe it? I'm shocked! SHOCKED!!

Is this article accurate...or is the place just temporarily closed? It really doesn't provide any information, except that they have a sign that says temporarily closed. Why does that mean they went out of business. That place is great.

Nice condescension (sarcasm and condescension intentional)!

The argument is not FREE vs. SOMETHING but instead LAST YEAR'S AMOUNT vs. EVEN MORE THIS YEAR. Sheesh. Was that intentional avoidance of the question at hand on your part or just dull-wittedness? Concession accepted.

I agree - when you go out it costs money...Lowell is SUPER cheap compared to other cities. The cost of living in Lowell compared to any place along, and within 128 is way less. Especially going out.

I have a gift card too that I would've used or at least to buy beauty products. Unbelieveable, closing without notice! I hope they plan to do something about it.
