Oct. 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.
Good luck to pure in your new location. I’m sorry your moving but u will definitely still be a customer. Great spa. Great staff. And wonderful owners. Good luck in your new adventure
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.
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.
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!
Wish you guys were staying. Its a popular business. Ever think of two locations?
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.
Hoping to join the racquet club! Until I do will still be down there to visit pure.
Everybody is welcome to use the spa services at the City View Racquet Club, you do not need to be a member 😀
You don’t have to be a club member to use the spa, I hope. I hear they are pretty expensive.
