That’s the spot of the old Cherry Valley Deli. I miss the owner, Jimmy, he was a real nice guy. I think he had another deli near St Johns(?). After the epic fire that ate up most of the block he had a difficult time keeping the place afloat.

It’s nice to have affordable waxing…. if they have good health practices and are good at it will be another story. Sometimes you pay for what you get.
I’ve been to Pure and it was “okay” when it came to waxing.

What we really need in Sunnyside is a yoga studio!

I can’t believe people shell out so much money to have hair removed. It used to be done in the privacy of one’s bathroom, by oneself. It seems we are a nation of personal service consumers. Well, if you have the money there is always someone willing to take it from you.

@Susan: When I was looking into a business, commercial rent is a lot lower than residential. It also is VERY situational. When I get my B-hole waxed I don’t pay that much. They work on the lowest margins possible.

@Craic how can ANY business with cheap prices pay the exorbitant rents? you tell me genius! competition is great but can’t it be for something worthwhile? Notice how they’re always CASH businesses for ex: nail salons & eyebrow, waxing salons or spas whatever u want to call them~!

@ Webley I agree 100% with you!

@Susan: oooooh you and your cliche “think out of the box.” It’s these multiple businesses of the same service that creates competition for you; better services at best prices. If they stink they go out of business. If they’re too expensive, they lower the price or go out of business. Competition is great!

I don’t get it, do they make that much money? I assume they are related to the Dunkin Donuts, uncle, relative, etc.. I remember Dunkin Donuts bought the whole property including the old korean church.. right?
Still, I wonder how much money can they make to pay the prime location rent. it is all HAIR! few plucks cannot cost more than $10 or so? You pluck 10 brows a day, even 25, should not be enough.

We have Pure on the N side of QB and various other salons – can’t ANYONE think out of the box???
