Chartered surveyors Sanderson Weatherall has helped a Teesside entrepreneur to find a home for her new business.
Former long haul flight attendant Gemma Pybus has set up Hartburn Tanning, a brand new salon in a former homewear shop on Harper Parade, Hartburn.
As well as offering sun bed sessions and related tanning oils, Gemma has moved her existing online ladies’ swimwear and bikini store, Spoil You Boutique, into the shop.
Hartburn Tanning has already created a part-time job for an assistant to support Gemma, who decided to establish the business after eight years working for airlines.
Gemma, who is from Hurworth, Darlington, said: “This is a great venue in which to set up my first tanning salon and to incorporate my existing online business. I am so pleased to be established in my own shop and the buzz I get from employing someone and growing the business is incredible. Andrew and the team at Sanderson Weatherall were great in helping to organise the lease and I am looking forward to a successful future with my new business.”
