Downtown Business Features
Feature Friday! :
@ 27 King St E Suite #3
Angela Tyo, Rene Tyo and Poncho (mascot) are the wonderful owners of Sun Deck Tanning Studio. Although the business is believed to have been around since 1988, Angela and Rene are new owners, having only owned the business since July 27th, 2019.
Angela is normally there 4-5 days a week, and runs the everyday operations. She is normally accompanied by Poncho, their studio dog (He has a different name to the regular customers however.) Rene works at 3M and fills in anytime Angela has errands to run.
Since taking ownership, Angela and Rene have done considerable renovations; creating more space and improving the tanning beds. They've also taken it upon themselves to make anyone walking in, feel like they're walking into a relaxing paradise.
Angela was born and raised in Brockville, she attended St. John Bosco and was Brockvilles very first female Altar server.
When Angela was getting ready for high school in the 80's, she was part of the initial fundraiser to open St. Mary Catholic High School. She was one of around 20-30 students that took grade 9 there for the very first time.
Angela later moved away to Belleville to finish high school. She came back to Brockville for a short while before going out to Banff springs to work as a waitress for Canadian Pacific. She was there for 4 years. Later, she went out to New Brunswick to work at St. Andrews by the sea, for a summer.
When Angela moved home, she worked a variety of different jobs until last year, when her and her husband purchased Sun Deck Tanning. They made it their mission to revamp the place and make it welcoming to everyone.
Angela and Rene are both very happy to supply vitamin D to every customer and friend. They want everyone to know that tanning isn't just for bronzing your skin, it is also extremely relaxing! They offer spray tanning, stand up or lay down tanning beds and a variety of lotions and creams.
They have free customer parking around the back of the building that is easy to access from Water St.
Congrats to over a year in business Rene and Angela, we are looking forward to many more!
