South Beach Tanning Company Lights Up Gainesville

After years of customers' requests, South Beach Tanning Company brings its brand to Gator Country.

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) July 09, 2014 - South Beach Tanning Company is excited to announce that it will be expanding its brand into the Gainesville, FL market. According to company Founder and President, Brian Hibbard, Gainesville has been his most requested expansion city for the past four years, but South Beach was waiting for the perfect location to come along - and it did.

This new South Beach Tanning salon will be situated in Gainesville's premiere shopping destination, Butler Plaza, the largest shopping center in North Central Florida, as well as the entire Southeast. The center stretches for approximately one mile, and is located in the southwest area of Gainesville, about a mile from the University of Florida, home to approximately 60,000 students. The new South Beach store will join Starbucks and Burger Fi at the main entrance of the center.

"To say that we're excited about this new location would be an understatement," says Mr. Hibbard. "We couldn't ask for a more perfect location. Our customers have been asking for a South Beach location in Gainesville, and we believe that, hands down, we have secured the absolute best spot in the Gainesville market. Our proximity to the University of Florida is ideal, and this center is unbelievable. This new location will have the best of the best--state-of-the-art equipment, most of which has never seen before by the Gainesville market, and will include a wide selection of both UV and Sunless tanning options. We project this will be one of the top-performing units in our system. We couldn't be happier.”

Butler Plaza currently houses not one but two Publix Grocery stores, a movie theater, Target, Walmart, Lowes, OfficeMax, Best Buy and an impressive "Restaurant Row" of 24 restaurants, including Bonefish Grill, Outback Steakhouse and more. South Beach Tanning Company will be the only tanning salon in the center.
