The Tanning Bed, located at 311 Foothills Mall Drive, has re-opened under the new ownership of Kevin and Karla Gourley. Since it has been open for more than 20 years, most people in Blount County know of The Tanning Bed. Although the name and location remain the same, the Gourleys have completely remodeled the exterior and interior of the business.
The Tanning Bed offers various types of beds and tanning packages for every need. Currently, there are 14 tanning beds to choose from with different tanning levels, one through four. The level four bed is the Orbit. With four facial tanners and 44 bronzing bulbs, this top of the line bed can be used daily to achieve that perfect tan, or once every one to two weeks for tan maintenance. For level three tanning, there are three lay down beds and one stand up bed to choose from. All of the level one and two beds lay down.
Prices vary according to the bed level desired and the frequency of your visits. Customers can purchase monthly, minute or yearly tanning packages which start as low as $19.99. The Tanning Bed also offers a special $30 monthly package in bed levels one through three for high school and college students who present their current school I.D.
