I have been a customer of Kokomo Tan for many years now, and the past few time that I have went there they have been closed and when I do get to tan the rooms are dirty and there are always bulbs out. I really hope this place is not going to close up like Florida Tan.

It is always so dirty in there, the plastic plants and decorations in the room have layers of dust and it looks like it has never been cleaned! But at least it is cold outside now and you can actually go and tan there now. This summer and fall whenever the temp was over 75 degrees it was unbearable in there. They never turned on the air conditioner (or said it was getting fixed) and you had to lay in your own pool of sweat in the tanning beds because it was so freakin hot in there.
It was up for sale....

They do have hot chicks in there. They walked in on me and were in no hurry to leave. Guess they liked what they saw.

They have been turning tricks at the place. A friend of mine was also buying videos from an employee of nude women tanning there.

I have been friends with the owner for about 6 years now. There is no way that this is going on, I feel safe tanning at Kokomo.

Actually...I DO know the owner and she laughs at how everyone seems to know her business. I love how you say you would never do anything to hurt her...really? Then what is this? The business is NOT in bankruptcy....I know cause I ASKED her which I hated to do because it is NONE of my business...but I wanted to set YOU straight. As a matter of fact she is in the process of updating things. What is wrong with you? This woman has been thru hell. Her and her kids and she is still trying to make it. Stop talking about shit that you have no idea about. Trying getting YOUR world in order first.

I know the owner and would not do anything to hurt her. But from what I have heard she is going to take alot of people for a ride.
Again I have heard this from several sources including some with first hand knowledge of it

Kokomo Tan is in bankruptcy and you will be taken for a ride. There is a sign on her counter that says make checks payable to her personally, not Kokomo Tan. Anyone who would do that deserves to be taken for a ride. I heard someone is interested in Florida Tan....be on the lookout!

ok...backing out of what I said....I need to learn my bankruptcy rules...Someone can file bankruptcy and it have nothing to do with their buisness...just found that out. Ask Dairy Queen, Compustitch, Lory Theatre,, General Motors and Coldwell Banker...amazing how many small business have filed yet are still here. Maybe I should since I haven't been able to find a job in 2 years.

Not when your business is equated WITH your personal...there is something called reaffriming certain debts. What is wrong with you? Why do you even care. Don't you have anything better to do with your life than to worry about someone woman trying to make it. It's just a FREAKING tanning salon for God's sake. Try focusing on the families who just brought home their dead, 23 year old soldier. Who really cares if it does shut down. Will your world be just devestated. If it does, im pretty sure hers will. That's her income, just like all these others getting laid off. Get a real life. Or if you think you can do sooooo much better then you buy it. Oh wait, people who complain are typically those that don't or can't do anything.

Well said...at least I'm learning there are still some smart people out there. I just can't believe there is this WHOLE uproar over a tanning salon. I feel really sad for the state we are all in. Whatever the owner decides to do I do hear shes a pretty nice woman with kids that's just trying to make it. Aren't we all?

Maybe we should all feel sorry for someone who could lose their means of support. You say everyone is gonna be taken for a ride. Really what's the most each individual is out? 50 lousy bucks. Have you ever looked at it from that side? What's the owner out? EVERYTHING. She starts over again. I heard her divorce almost destroyed her financially and emotionally. But she keeps on trying. WTF. Get over it girl. You probably don't even tan there. Your one of those people that bitch about the President, but don't vote. Do YOU do your part to support your town? That's why I have never and WILL never own a small business. Just ask those that do. No insurance. TAXed ridiculously. 24 hour, 7 day a week job. Trying to keep others employed. No, I'll keep my easy 9-5.

Hey I got an idea maybe while your cutting the owner down lets go further. Maybe she will kill herself, maybe she will leave her kids orphaned. Maybe her and her kids can live on the street. Maybe she will just go to hell for ALL her sins in trying to run a business. Hell, if you want bad for someone, then really go for it.
