CLAY — A new nail salon is open in Clay, and owner Karen Tu is excited to be part of the Clay community at the Clay Shoppes at 5104 Old Springville Road.
Tu, who has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, recently moved her business to Alabama. She previously owned a business in Massachusetts, where she finished high school and attended college. She holds a degree in Economics, but chose the nail profession.
“I worked in accounting, but it got very boring working with papers and computers,” Tu said.
Now, she’s continuing her career in the nail salon business, and said she is happier because she is good at it. The business has been open for a week, and Tu said she has been very happy with the business she’s had so far.
“When our customers leave, they are happy and they send their friends because we do a really good job,” she said.
Choosing her location was easy when she stopped in the shopping center and saw the vacant building.
“I like the area here,” Tu said. “Everybody has been so nice.”
