Tan2000 is by Texas Road House. It's expensive but well worth it. But heard at work that now you have a sign a contract type thing sorda like a gym membership? Is this true? Anyone know?

I've known a lot to go to JC Tan Co. I personally despise tanning. D: But I'm a pasty person by nature.

Er, anywhere you go is about the same as far as machines. Cleanliness is what I'd look for. I'd recommend no matter where you go bring some wipes with you to wipe down the bed.:] I'm not sure if it's required for them to clean the beds after people use them...

Point is, even though UV sanitizers exist, the UV light from the bed doesn't keep 'em clean. So, bring disinfectant wipes. You can actually break out if someone had acne, went tanning, and then you used it right after them. V.V

They do make you sign a contract now. They take your credit card information, and charge you once a month based on which bed you want to lay in. It is 29.99 to go month to month for a regular (non-twister). They print out a contract and it states that if you want to cancel your membership you have to send in a letter in writing at least 5 days prior to your monthly charge going through. They also have a pre-pay plan where you can pay 6 months or a year at a time.:)

Tan 2000 is definitely the best place in the tri cities! They are also part of the JC Tan Company too so you can use your membership at any of them. They have monthly unlimited packages starting as low as $19.99! I agree with JC_Student though, the "Elite" store over by Jasons Deli and Ritas Ice on State of Franklin is my favorite too!

Tanning is so so bad for you!! Be happy with who you are! Go natural! It's so easy to tell who goes to tanning beds and who doesn't! And trust me it is not attractive. I have talked to many men on the subject and they all seem to agree that it looks fake and takes away from the real beauty a woman has!! Please stop slowly killing yourself! Use that spray tan stuff if you must be so tan! Even though I'm not sure I trust that option either. What is in that stuff anyway??

Although I realize tanning places in JC are being inquired about here in this thread, I have to say that Vivacious Tans is a great place in Stoney Creek for tanning. Convenient and comfortable. Very friendly service too.

Either way, too many of you women are frying yourselves under those tanning booths.
Look at the rich lady who use to live at that so-called Grindstaff Castle. All that suntanning makes her look 20 yrs older than she really is - looks like a weathered baseball mitt under all that makeup too. Just my opinons.

JC Tan Company is NOT as wonderful as you think. The owner is for one, a pervert, who has a staring problem. Anytime I have been in there, and that was almost everyday until he didn't put new bulbs in the more expensive beds that I use. One of the 2 of those beds blew up, and turns on by itself, and smells like its on fire. SCARY! anyways, anytime i've been in there he is standing over the girl workings shoulder, staring down her shirt, whispering to her, touching her... and I've heard from people who actually work for him, that if you don't sleep with him, or let him be close to you/touch you.. that you won't keep your job very long. All of the girls that work there do NOT know anything about tanning or educating someone on the dos/donts. For example.. a fair freckle skinned ginger walks in... " what bed should I use, and how much time?" OHHHH you can definately lay the full 20 minutes' WHAT THE F! I would NOT be surprised if the she didn't blister. He is a cheap ass who needs to take better care of his beds. If you can't take care of all locations, you shouldn't have so many. ALSO he changes the hours ALL the time.. and depending on what ditzy bimbo is working, will determine how long they are open, because most of the locations do not keep the same hours. He does make you sign a contract and you must have the money drafted monthly from your bank account for at least 6 months. He gets you for an extra month, because the 1st month you pay up front, and then your account is hit for 6 months. So really it's 7 months. There is also a membership fee. The lotions are priced higher than any place I've ever tanned, and he never gives discounts or runs sales. I buy my lotions on ebay and say piss on him. If it wasn't for the convience of the location to my job/home. I would NOT tan there. I may actually go to Sun Tan City. I have heard great things about them!
I am not the biggest fan of the owners, but I think its really sad that an employee at sun tan city would get on here and talk so negative of another business in the area. The self promotion at the end was clever. He does change his bulbs in half the time he is supposed to at all six of his locations. His lotion prices are not higher than any other tanning salon in the area. They may be higher than eBay prices but at least with him you know exactly what it is you are getting. As far as the visits, you can do single visits are five visits without giving bank information. There is a one month membership that you can cancel after your first payment so the six months is not your only option. Before you take so much time to put a place down, you should know what you are talking about first. You put down his employees too and then said sun tan city may be a good place to try. Several girls he has gotten rid of are employed at sun tan city now, but go figure!

This post is funny! How low will SunTanCity stoop? Does anyone remember when SunTanCity was over on State of Franklin Rd near the Animal Shelter entrance?? They couldn't pay rent and ran some ridiculous sale knowing they were closing that store and screwed hundreds of people?? I worked there then and none of the employees even had a clue! They can not be trusted!

I was at Tan 2000 today and they were changing their bulbs in all the beds while I was there! They've always had really hot bulbs I think. Definitely my favorite tanning salon.

I have tanned at Tan 2000 for over 5 years and the only time Ive ever seen the owner(s) in there was when they were changing bulbs or working on improvements. Apparently they are doing something right.. Kudos guys and gals! Keep up the good work and Congrats on being voted #1 tanning salon in the entire tricities for ANOTHER year!! All of my friends and coworkers tan there!
