ALBANY, GA (WALB) - What do you plan to cut back on this year to save money? Chances are it may not be luxury services.
You don't have to have your nails done or visit the spa, but folks who offer those services say a little pampering can be good for during tough times, they're still seeing the money file in.
"I was really surprised; we were full with customers towards the holidays," said Kevin Lu, LEDO Nails.
Lu is pleasantly surprised that the money continues to come in.
Though some may chop services like nails and spay days from the budget, April Little says it's worth it, she tries not to think of money.
"Everybody needs to a little bit but it's just fun to get out and relax," said Little.
Lu says there's always a steady demand for services like this in Albany.
"They need to get those things done as far as hair and nails those things go along really well," said Lu.
Some area spas tell us their business is also steady.
"Our business hasn't slowed down at all because of the economy, I think especially as they are stressful as it is for other people they'd rather come to a stress free environment," said Brandy Hickok, Mint Julep Spa Director.
They say the service this industry offers is something people can use to get away from the world, and forget about their problems.
"We're looking forward to a fantastic 2009," said Hickok.
As Americans make cutbacks service industry employees, are glad that services like these are still a part of our budgets.
