Does the Shasta chick still work there? The Feds were on a black guy who was a drug dealer and dating a girl there.

Ummm I do believe shasta worked at tanfastics NOT lion in the sun. Also, I wouldn't complain about an establishment having a knowledgable staff and their customers best interest at hand. Don't u think its worth a few extra mins to learn how to maximize the product ur paying for? I love this place and have never heard such a petty complaint in all the many years they've been in fairmont...a long standing business in tjis area speaks for itself!

Uh if they are letting the customer smell 5 different lotions then that doesn't sound like bad customer service. And as far as the music goes, it doesn't matter what is playing there's always going be someone who would rather listen to something else. very petty

The fact that the OWNER is present at the business is a step up from other places!

The complaint isn't about what kind of music is playing, it's the fact that the beds DON'T work half the time and you CAN'T hear the music!! The other complaint is it's RIDICULOUS to have two or three employees just standing behind the counter while only ONE of them is waiting on ONE customer!! The other employee/employees could be waiting on the other customers standing in line!!

You have a valid point if you're frustrated about waiting but welcome to 2013 if you don't like the music or can't hear it then bring an ipod or mp3 player with you so you can choose your preference!!! Usually tanning beds and tanning salons are used for tanning! Their beds are always clean and bulbs are always updated and hottttt!

The last time I was there half the bulbs were burned out of all three beds that I laid in. Other then that it was clean.

This is a local business that I have tanned at for over 10 years, I tan at the one on Morgantown Avenue and in that time, I have never tanned in a bed that had half the bulbs burnt out, are you sure you are not talking about their competition? Once I laid in a bed that had one bulb out, I told the counter person, she immediate closed the bed off, the next day I went in and it was fixed. I still tan there to this day,and have never seen a bulb out. The owner is hands on, maybe if she was behind the counter and not waiting on people there was a reason, I know not all of the employees are trained on the counter, some are bed runners and their job is just to keep things clean giving the counter people more time with their customer. If you have a complaint, tell them, I feel confident enough that the owner would love to know you are dissatisfied and would correct something you feel is a problem if needed. As far as the music, that is one area where you would never please everyone, take your I Pod and ask for a room with a volume knob, if the knob doesn't work, let someone know. Trashing a long standing loyal business without talking to the owner first is pretty low in my opinion.

I am the manager at Lion in the Sun and I would liek to clear up a few things:
1) If there are 2 people working, 1 of them is a salon assistant whose job is to keep beds clean and assist around the salon to keep things running smoothly. They are seasonal employees and are NOT trained on the computer system so they are not able to put you into a bed.
2)I can assure you the owner has, at no time in 19 years of owning this business, ever just stood around and not taken care of customers. She is the single solid reason LITS has been in business this long and continues to grow and prosper.
3)I aplologize if you have had to wait behind someone making a purchase, but wouldn't you like the same service if you were wanting to choose from over 50 products and various packages to find one that best suits you? Each customer is important to us and deserves as much time as they need to make a decsion on how to spend their hard earned money.
4) We are continually working on maintenance of our salons. If you are referring to the volume knobs in a couple of the rooms at the Morgantown Ave salon, we have addressed them multiple times and will look into it again. We have Sirius radio at all salons that are set on stations with a variety of music. If it does not suit you, you are welcome to bring an Ipod. Some of our beds at the Kingmont and Locust Ave salons are mp3 compatible so you can play your own music through the bed.
5) We have never had an employee by the name of Shasta.
6) Our beds are fully functional. If there is ever a problem or a bulb out, we shut the bed down until it is fixed. Our smallest salon has 12 beds, so Cub, you must be mistaken - we have NEVER had a bed with "half the bulbs out".
7) We would greatly appreciate coming to us personally if you have an issue instead of inappropriately slandering us and making untrue statements on a public forum.

No slander. Just an opinion. Maybe you should have a sales rep, a bed cleaning assistant, AND a bed assigning person. Then people wouldn't have to wait for the sales girl for 15 min to sell the chick in front of you some lotion. Makes sense. And the knobs suck. They are busted. If its been addressed, then they wouldn't be broken still.

Bulbs are fine. Rooms are clean. Never said sanitation was an issue.

In an economy where prices have risen on just about everything, our prices have not changed in four or so years. Adding an additional employee would raise our overhead costs, therefore forcing us to raise our prices which I'm sure everyone would like to avoid. Again, my apologies if you have had to wait in line. That is not going to be the case all day everyday but we have no way of predicting when there will be a wait.
I went to the Morgantown Ave, salon this evening and checked on all of the busted volume knobs you are referring to. There is a total of 1 knob and 1 speaker wire that needs replaced, and rest assured we will have it fixed as soon as we find someone to do so.
Again to anyone on here who found something to be unsatisfactory in our salons, please simply bringing it to an employee's attention instead of berating us on a public forum. I hope this puts an end to this conversation

It's called a public forum so the public can comment. It happens.

Lighten up LITS, thou doth protest too loudly! Sound a little defensive. Correct the issue and move on. If you have good service at a good price, the strippers and people with bad skin will show up.

By the time the Obama administration and the democrats get done with things, you will be looking for another line of work anyway. WV is working on a bill to end tanning for those under 18 due to the dangerousness of sun beds.

Enjoy while it lasts.

Idk why LITS management would even respond and then leave a book report size comment. Sounds like they're insecure in their business.
