“Dear PoPville,

I was in Joy’s Nail Spa on 18th street the other day and she told me that she’s closing in a week. I’m bummed, and was hoping you could show her some love. She deserves a vacation and hopefully with a bunch of support over the next week, she can take a good long one. Seems like she’s closing early next week.”

Update: Help relocate and return to Joy’s Spa GoFundMe:

“For 23 years, Joy’s Spa has been a part of your life.

We’ve watched you get married. We’ve met your babies. We’ve been there when you got that new job and we’ve been there when you’ve needed a pick-me-up from life’s letdowns. It’s been our honor and privilege to be there for your very best days and the days that aren’t so good at all. From special occasions–proms, weddings, vacations–to your everyday beauty needs, Joy’s Spa has been a part of your life and community. We want to continue to be a part of your life and special occasions for many years to come but we need your help. We are in the process of moving to a new location that will be a better fit for us and for you, but we need your help to get that location up and running. Starting new means installing new plumbing infrastructure, getting new equipment to better suit our new space and serve you, and of course rent. Please consider making a donation to our GoFundMe campaign so Joy’s can continue to be a part of your life for the next 23 years and beyond.
Please take a moment and share our story.

From The entire Joy’s Spa family, we thank you for the continued love and support.”
