Beach Bum Tanning – Doomed

Beach Bum Tanning Closes in Hoboken, NJ

Well, another Hoboken business closed up shop recently – this time Beach Bum Tanning at 114 Sinatra Drive has shut down. Is it the economy or another case of the landlord jacking the rent to unconscionable levels?

A sign on the window says that those who have packages or memberships can use any other Beach Bum Tanning location. Not so convenient for those without cars. There are however, a few locations in Manhattan – as well as one up the road in Edgewater.

You can call their Northvale location at (201)297-7363 for more information or to express your gripes.

With Bronze Republic also closing a month ago, the tanning options in Hoboken are getting thin! Is this a trend?

Tanning just in time for beach weather!

    Nice place, but a bit over priced. Their introductory rate of 14.95 for one month unlimited is pretty good though.

    got an airbrush tan on friday for a wedding on saturday. it was my first time ever getting airbrushed, and they did make me feel comfortable. $20 for a new customer with coupon (usually $45 i think). the girl who did it missed a spot under my arm, but other than that i was very happy with the results. not orange or streaky. very professional – i would do it again.

    I went here on Saturday to get the airbrush tan done for an event I had to attend on Sunday. Unbelievable! I wasn’t orange, or streaky, and I still have quite a bit of color. I will definitely do this again.

    My only concern, hopefully I didn’t scar the young girl who did the airbrushing for life! It must be uncomfortable for her to spray tan people like that. 😳

    Just go to Planet Sun. With an uptown and downtown location…its a better choice anyway. They dont do the airbrush, but they have the more private Mystic which is fantastic. They’ve been around forever and aren’t going anywhere with your money! :mrgreen:

    It’s sad to see places go out of business. Based on my experience, people still want spray tans, so that’s definitely not the problem. With the current state of the economy, it’s tough to support a brick and mortar business. That’s why a lot of professional spray tanners in NJ (myself included – Nicole’s Tan Go) have a mobile spray tanning business. No paying outrageous rent and our clients can still get a professional, customized tan.
