Anwar Hussain, Associate at Salloways in Burton. "Though we had other premises available it was No 5 that ticked all the right boxes for The Tannery; and we were anxious that she should have this opportunity to exploit her entrepreneurial skills
with this high quality tanning lounge concept".

Customers will be welcomed at the reception desk located on the ground floor where they can relax whilst waiting for their treatment sessions.
