The owners of Pure Spa and Salon, a popular hair and beauty shop located on the border of Sunnyside and Long Island City, have announced that they are closing later this year after being in business for 14 years.
Patrick and Regina Tunney announced on Facebook that they would be closing the spa on Oct. 30.
Pure Spa is currently located at the City View Racquet Club near the 33rd Street 7-train station. The spa had operated out of a large space at 40-15 Queens Blvd until 2015, but moved to Long Island City as it attracted clients citywide.
The spa was founded by Regina who had worked as a makeup artist in Manhattan before deciding to start her own business. She gathered a list of trusted products and treatments and founded the beauty shop.
The Tunneys’ Facebook post thanked the staff who had worked at Pure over the years, and the customers who frequented the spa and salon.
They paid special thanks to their community partners, specifically those at CityView Racquet Club. The club, as part of its membership package, offers Pure Spa services.
The Facebook post also encouraged customers to redeem any gift vouchers they might have before the spa’s closure.
The Tunneys also own the Copper Kettle, a popular bar/restaurant on Skillman Avenue.
Can someone tell me how I can get reimbursed for the 2 gift certificates I purchased and was unable to use because they closed down? I never got notified and have been trying to make an appt until someone told me they shut down. How unfair. No email or call.
Sorry to see pure go. Great spa. Pat and Regina are lovely people. Glad the kettle is still thriving!
Oh please the Copper Kettle is a high end bar compared to Jack’s Fire Dept on Skillman and 4oth Street. Have you ever seen the burnt out crowd that hangs out there.
Pure and also the copper kettle are the best places in sunnyside and woodside and everyone is friendly and welcoming and the stuff are hardworking
I have never had a problem at the Kettle and would definitely recommemd it.
Shame it had to leave original location it was so beautiful and an asset 2 Queens Blvd.! That was all taken away when they moved.
Is that really your name?
They just did not have a business that was built to survive it’s called progress.
Area must be putting up luxury apts
The same boring letter over and over and over. Ughhh. Do you think you’re funny or smart or what? Maybe what.
That city view racket club manager is kind of a tool. He gets so wasted on the job.
They should clean up the Kettle. Lots of smoking outside and loud obnoxious people outside and inside. They have hired some seriously nasty staff in the past and have allowed them to denigrate women.
The guy posting as tootirstooters and oh Lily should be blocked. Rude and obnoxious.
Anyone who disagrees with you is “obnoxious”. #youcanthandlethetruth
They should shut down the Kettle as it attracts an unruly crowed and has obnoxious staff.
Just turn up Fox News and you won’t be able to hear them
I don’t watch Fox – I love Rachel Maddow because she is lovely and amazing #rachelmaddowislovelyandamazing
Obnoxious staff?!? The owner of the Alcove worked there and he’s not obnoxious, he’s a salt-of-the-earth guy.
He owns his own place and is great
That was years ago
Yes I agree. The crowd that hangs out there gives the neighborhood a bad image.
