If you're looking for a place to get all your pampering without having to run all over town, look no further than Centennial Mall's Tumbleweeds & Lace Salon.
Tumbleweeds & Lace, 1111 W. Victory Way, is in the final stages of renovating its space in the mall, expanding from suite 127 into neighboring suite 125. As part of the expansion, the nail and hair salon will also feature new services.
"It's going to offer everything in the industry — waxing, tanning, massage, nails on hands and feet, hair, colors, cuts, perms," part owner Debbie Belleville said. "Ultimately, we'll have three hairstylists, five nail techs, two estheticians and a massage therapist."
Belleville, a nail specialist, said the staff of Tumbleweeds & Lace has been anticipating an expansion of the mall space since opening shop in summer 2009.
"When you go into business, there comes a point where you either have to grow or just be done," she said. "The time has come for us to grow. Our goal is to be able to grow a little bit at a time once we get the space where it needs to be. The industry changes every day, so if there's something else we can add, I want to keep our options open."
The staff plans to be open for business with the new space Aug. 1 under the name Spa Central at Tumbleweeds & Lace.

Gymnastics, cheer classes to move location
While one of the Centennial Mall's established businesses will be further developing in the place where it started, the mall will also be welcoming a new renter.
Gymstar Fun N' Fit Gymnastics will move into the mall's suite 119, in the east wing of the building, behind Dollar Tree. Gymstar offers gymnastics classes and other athletic services to children in preschool through age 18.
The gymnastics studio's staff operated out of 315 Tucker St. for about a year before choosing to relocate about two months ago.
"The space we're in right now is very small, and the new space is about five times the size," coach Jennifer Vallem. "It'll bring a lot of business into the community because we're going to start having tournaments there, and it'll have so many more options for equipment."
Rates start at $40 per month. Vallem said she will be offering classes for adults, as well as children.
The area will also be used for cheerleading practices for the Moffat County Thunder, coached by Valerie Davis. As the cheer coach for Moffat County High School, Vallem will also use the space for her practices.
Vallem will host an open house Aug. 4 for the public to check out Gymstar's new digs.
