Pure Spa & Salon to Leave Queens Blvd, Relocating to City View Racquet Club

purespaOct. 13, 2015 Staff Report

Pure Spa & Salon, a popular Sunnyside hair and beauty shop, is closing down its 40-15 Queens Blvd location in November and reopening at the City View Racquet Club by 33rd Street in Long Island City.

The move to City View Racquet Club, a high-end sports facility that focuses on tennis and squash, represents the growing customer base the spa has generated outside of its home base of Sunnyside and Woodside.

The new location is nearby, located by the 33rd Street/Rawson stop on the 7 line.

In a message to clients, owners Patrick and Regina Tunney, wrote the following:

Dear Valued Clients,

It has been an honor and pleasure to serve your health and beauty needs for the past decade in the neighborhood where we first started our lives in America.  The Sunnyside/Woodside community will continue to hold a special place in our hearts and we are forever appreciative of the residents, local business owners and community leaders who supported the development of Pure Spa & Salon.

Our business has expanded over the past decade and we have developed a diverse client base to encompass people beyond Sunnyside and Woodside and to include those from other parts of Queens and even some from other boroughs.

Beginning of November, we will no longer be operating out of our Queens Boulevard location but will be more readily accessible to the majority of our clients at The City View Racquet Club which is located at the 33rd St./Rawson stop on the 7 line.

We will continue to honor valid gift certificates at our new location.  We are enthused by the prospects of continuing to serve your needs and thank you for your continued support.

We will continue to keep you updated on any new developments.  Please ensure you have joined our mailing list by sending your details to [email protected]

Thank you again,

The Staff and Management at Pure Spa and Salon.

Patrick and Regina Tunney.

Likely the same landlord that drove out New Post with high rent and demands for additional money under the table.

Wow, what a bummer. I am sure I will still continue to visit at the new location because Rose will be there (I hope) but it is disappointing that the neighborhood is losing Pure Spa.

Will be missed!

This is so sad. I’ve been going to Pure since it opened. The staff is so pleasant and the cleanliness and total vibe of the place is awesome.
I don’t think i will trek down to 33rd and up the snooty elevators to CityView though. Good luck!

33rd street is where the YMCA is and it is a HUGE community draw (not sure what people are disliking). the city view racquet club is a RACQUET so overpriced. good luck to the business.

Hello

The rent is probably too high now at their current location.
To move to 33rd street in a semi industrial looking area and not very community orientated really doesn’t seem to make sense.
Either way, best of luck!

This is a terrible idea. You’d have to know it’s there to want to go. I guess they think they’ll make more money but it’s sort of a major let down. I’ll probably just go somewhere near work now since the biggest pull was that it was so close. Down by the tennis courts is not the nicest area.

LaGuardia Community College recently received more than $400,000 in federal funding to enhance and expand vocational training for underemployed New Yorkers in a city that is still working to recover from COVID-19 pandemic-induced job loss.

In an effort to get more young people involved in civics, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards has created a new advisory panel known as the Youth and Young Adult Council to introduce the “youngest and fiercest” community advocates to both community service and organization.

Members of the advisory body will advocate concerns through means of community engagement by participating in one of two cohorts. The first will be made up of high school representatives between the ages of 13 and 17, while the second cohort will be comprised of young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
