Downtown salon closes, blaming poor economy
Euphoria Nail & Body Bar's outstanding gift cards in question
Euphoria Nail & Body Bar, which promoted itself as Pleasanton's "upscale nail boutique, has closed its doors at 660 Main St. due to a lack of business.
Pleasanton Weekly readers, commenting on Town Square, said they had recently purchased or been given gift cards for services at Euphoria and wondered now if they'll be honored somewhere else.
"Unfortunately, due to the very bad economy we have not been able to sustain (our business)," said a statement from owner Jovann Walker, who opened Euphoria in the spring of 2008.
"Downtown Pleasanton is a wonderful city and we have so much to be thankful for from this experience such as winning 'Best Mani/Pedi' in 2008 and 2009, (being) voted 'Best in Customer Satisfaction amongst Tri-Valley Salon's 2010' and being ranked within the 'Top 10 Salons in Eastbay' by Nail Magazine in July 2010, to name a few," the statement said.
In a message signed by "Jovann, Michael & Staff," Walker said: "Everyone here at Euphoria thanks you for your past support, business and every enjoyable moment we've had with you as our customers and friends. Thank you for taking this journey with us as we explored every new and innovative product."
