Uptown Girls working in a downtown world!
When sisters, Tiffany and Amber from Let It Heal Health Clinic began searching for new digs for their growing business, the plans were to remain in their familiar north Burlington community.
Well fate intervened! Not only did they begin to consider downtown Burlington but also considered taking a plunge and purchasing The Spa In The Village. The spa, which had been in business for over 30 years (actually the first day spa in Burlington) really grabbed the sister’s interest. Admittedly not knowing much about spas, the ladies asked their good friend, Lala Alexanian to take on the role as their Spa Manager. With Lala’s 25 years in the spa business, as well as the loyal help of Glasgow’s Beverley Parker who they “adopted” from the previous owners, the future looked exciting!
With the help and support of their parents and families the dream took shape. It was very apparent from the start that the close-knit downtown businesses were all there to support each other.
More than 3 years later they moved the business from 2nd floor to ground level as well as expanding into almost double the space and grew their team with an amazing group of staff that have become like family.
Tiffany and Amber and all the girls at the spa love welcoming all of the loyal regulars form downtown Burlington, and they have attracted clients from all over the GTA.
“We couldn’t be happier that we were truly welcomed into the amazing downtown community!” says Tiffany.
Thanks, downtown Burlington for all you do, we are truly converted downtown girls!
