Seattle, Washington – A manicure boutique is closing its doors for good, its founder said Monday.
The salon in Bellevue, Washington, closed Monday, saying it no longer wanted to sell manicures, pedicures or anything else.
Owner Kim Covington told News24 she was saddened by the loss of her business, which opened in 2007 and was well-loved by her customers.
Covington said she’s not closing her salon, but is taking a step back to focus on her new endeavor, a hair salon that she is building with her husband.
“I feel like it’s just not for me anymore,” she said.
“I just can’t do it anymore.”
CovingTON said she started out selling the salon for just $2 a day.
She said she sold about 200 manicures a day before the salon closed and that sales have dropped by about half since.
“It’s not like we lost a billion dollars,” she told News25.
“We have an extremely loyal clientele that have been with us since day one.”
Citing her limited business, CovingTON declined to say what percentage of sales she makes.
The salon also sold other items including a massage chair, a makeup artist, a beauty school, and a hair dresser.COUGHT BY THE KING?
