Bronze Republic Tanning – Doomed

Hoboken Tanning Salon Bronze Republic gone from 6th & Washington

Bronze Republic (formerly Hollywood Tans) has vacated their spot at 537 Washington Street.

A sign on the door indicates they “lost their lease” and will be relocating somewhere else, and customers will not be charged. However, I’m wondering how fast a “relocation” can happen. You need to find a property, negotiate a lease, design the space, get permits, planning board approval, build and so on. That could take months!

Hollywood%20tans - Bronze Republic Tanning - Doomed

May 2006

Open since October 2005, Hollywood Tans brings their franchise to Hoboken.

Situated right in the heart of the town, they serve our midtown residents perfectly.

Different from the other salons in the area, Hollywood only offers standup models.

13 UV Standup models:

– The basic HT42 (8% UVB rays – 11 minute tan)
– The souped-up HT60 (2% UVB rays – 8 minute tan)hollywood%20tans%20basic%20booths - Bronze Republic Tanning - Doomed

and one 100% UV-Free spray tanning machine (tans good for 5-7 days).

Prices are relatively fair. The best deal being the $19.99 per month basic package. Which allows for one tan in the HT42 per 24 hours, and 50% discounts off machine upgrades, and 10% off lotions. You can also buy tans individually or in bulk.

If you want to try them out they have a buy one get one offer for new members. Report back on your experiences! Do you get a good tan? Are the bulbs as good as the other tanning places in town?

One good thing about the standup machines is that they're much more sanitary that the horizontal models. Something that hypochondriacs will love.

They have a friendly staff and a convenient location. Not much more to say.

Bronze Republic (Hoboken, NJ): NEVER REFUNDED my money back after they closed down over Two months ago. They Will NOT even return my phone calls (approximately 10). I had to file civil suit (small claims court). Hopefully then Bronze Republic will refund my money. Worst customer service ever 🙁

I wonder how many viable, profitable businesses of all types are being forced to close because of the exorbitant rent increases. How many jobs are being lost as a result?

I could never understand why people want to look like orange traffic cones. Nothing flattering about it. I don’t think it even makes anyone look healthier—just artificial. Sort of like putting fake plants around your house for that outdoor look. ugh

I think “lost our lease” and “forced to close” is another way of saying, “Our lease was up and they wanted to raise the rent so damn high we couldn’t afford to stay in the space any longer.” They probably had the remainder of the lease from Hollywood Tans, which might have been affordable, considering it was a few years back – and are now being forced out with a ridiculous rent increase. Just my guess.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
