    Default Business Idea

    Had a pedicure today --- since a woman here in Santo Domingo cannot walk around with undone toenails

    And I thought that the first person who brings in the pedicure massage chairs to this county is going to become rich

    Pedicure Chairs for Salons and Day Spas

    we have them in almost every mall in the US

    well at least in the hip cool places

    not in Nebraska,perhaps, noted, bienamor!

    Good morning Annie, I'm just a little curious, Your link shows 2 chairs, one at 1995.US and the other at 3995. US. This would be RD 74,000 and 148,000 respectively.
    What do they charge here for a pedicure (now you would have to figure how much would the employer pays the employee per person and subtract that from the amount charged) and how long do you think it would take to pay off a chair before a profit was seen.
    I'm always looking for an honest way to make a buck....
    This isn't my kind of business, but if it turns a profit why not.

    it was a silly passing idea

    just because I love those chairs

    but the women here already spend too much on their "beauty" regimes - rather than what is inside their heads

    just that I so prefer those pedicures -- rather than sitting with my foot perched awkwardly in someone's lap

    i reckon that they are made in China-- like everything else

    it is the Vietnamese who run the salons in the US

    best for them to bring them here, not us gringos

    this is so gross. i would never be able to enjoy the pedicure thinking that the "sink" thingy below has not been cleaned properly and i am now soaking my feet in some else's fungal infection leftovers...

    Haha! dv8, in the states the nail salons scrub them out between customers with hot water and disinfectant soap and a spray nozzle. They have water jets in them that massage your feet, and are beyond wonderful because the chair portion has massage from your thighs to your neck.

    I'd say they're cleaner than the little plastic tubs you stick your feet into in DR when you get a pedicure. Of course, the lack of hot water in some salons would make the whole experience less than desirable.

    Annie, I've seen little pedicure stools that the salons could buy that are way more comfy than putting your foot on someone's lap - reminds me of the seats that used to be in shoe stores back in the day that the guy sat on. Here are a couple that would make your experience a lot better for a lot less than those $2,000US chairs:

    They actually have those fancy chairs here in Cabrera. It's very nice while getting a pedicure... and still a great price!!
