I was prompted to write this post after reading a e-mail offer from another local spa here in Portland. It was so shocking that I must share it with you. The tone they set really isn’t conducive to a lovely experience and actually seems down right rude to me. I have not edited this, but will leave the name out.

“By appointment only. A 24-hour cancellation policy applies. Deal must be used in 1 visit. Not valid on holidays or holiday weekends. This deal cannot be combined with any other offer. No cash value. Gratuity not included. PLEASE TIP ON THE FULL VALUE OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED. Coupon expires October 31, 2011. Please PRINT and bring the coupon with you. We look forward to seeing you soon!”  Wow, that’s all I can say…or will say publicly anyway.

Ok for once and for all, while tips are greatly appreciated they are never accepted at Skin by Marywynn. We love your referrals and online reviews on Google places, Yelp and City Search. We want you to think of our work as treatment. You don’t tip your dental hygienist so you don’t tip us.
