While you can’t blame a business owner for wanting to attract new customers, one College Park business took it a step further when they attempted to grab their competitors customers.
We told you about how the Beauty Spot in College Park would be moving. To do so they closed their current location so they could relocate.
The property owner was nice enough to let them post a sign about their new location at their old location.
The Spa, which operates a day spa just around the corner, saw this as an opportunity and posted signs over the Beauty Spot’s notice offering to accept gift certificates from Beauty Spot and giving new customers a discount.
Beauty Spot owner Jenni Cornette couldn’t understand why people thought she was closing down until she saw the signs posted at her former location.
The Spa’s owner Andy Swart told Bungalower that they didn’t look at the signs they were covering up.
He was also quick to point out that he did this seven years ago when she temporarily closed down her business due to personal reasons.
“We were able to bring over a lot of customers,” he said.
What do you think, posting a flyer over a moving notice…good business or bad neighbor?
