FINAL MESSAGE TO CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS OF SERENE

==================

Dear Serene Customers and Friends,

As notified in June, Serene Skin & Body officially closed as of June 30, 2017.  As the owner of Serene for the last six years, I worked endless hours to rebuild Serene into a prosperous business in spite of the many challenges small business owners face. Closing Serene is by far the most difficult decision I have ever had to make, as it has been every part of my life and soul. I feel blessed to have been honored with a great team and amazing customers all these years.  I’m sorry there wasn’t more I could do to keep this business operational.  While there is still hopes Serene’s legacy will continue under new ownership, unfortunately I did not have any luck securing a buyer and I have been faced with my only other option of closure.

While spas and salons close without any official notice we did our best to notify everyone in the final weeks and spread the word.  I hope many of you were able to come to Serene before closure to use your gift certificate or series or to see us one last time.  For those who were unable to come I sincerely apologize but we will not be providing any refunds for unused gift certificates as Serene is officially closed.  Many local spas and salons have generously stepped forward to honor Serene’s outstanding gift certificates.  The spas/salons listed below will honor 50% of the value of your gift certificate for select services. When scheduling your appointment be sure to let them know you have a Serene Skin and Body Gift Certificate.
