( — November 21, 2013) Denver, CO — As Fall turns to winter, Tanning Salons in Denver are bracing themselves for the peak season. According to Geoff Barnes – Owner and General Manager of Colorado Tan locations in Arvada, CO “Just like Black Friday for Christmas shopping, the day after Thanksgiving is big for us.” With several months passing since it was warm enough to tan, customers increasingly seek out tanning salons in the Denver area where they can maintain their summer look. “The Holidays are a very social time of the year despite the weather,” Barnes says “Our customers want to look their best, and we have the products to help them keep their look year round.”

Indoor tanning is becoming increasingly popular during the winter months because salons have evolved from the old “tan shacks” of the 1980’s into full service boutiques boasting a variety of beauty products. Spray tanning and bronzers continue to grow more popular for those who are reluctant to use tanning beds. Statistics have shown that nearly 15% of women use tanning beds on a regular basis, and up to 30% have used them at some time in their life, but bronzers and spray tanning are beginning to outstrip their popularity by about 20%. “Some of our customers see it as such an essential part of their look it is just like putting on their makeup in the morning,” Barnes says.

As customer volume increases, some customers may find it more difficult to get an appointment then they did during the warmer months. In some cases, customer appointments have been known to double in the colder months. “In addition to our regular customers, we get a great deal of new customers that preferred outdoor tanning during the Spring and Summer months. “We encourage all of our customers to make their appointment well in advance during the holiday rush, but we still encourage walk-ins as bookings can open up.” Colorado Tan is offering many specials during the month of November, including $9.95 for a Sun Club Membership and 30% off of all products.
