One local business offering customers the opportunity to bolster their appearance has performed a new rejuvenation — on itself.

The staff of Aesthetic Apeel Salon & Day Spa, 401 Russell St., is operating under a new banner in a well-known Craig locale. The location, which formerly housed The Hairtage, underwent alterations in mid-November.

"I'd been wanting to do it since I came here two years ago," stylist Tammy Hagar said. "We just wanted to update the place. It's been here for so long that The Hairtage kind of faded out. Our name just holds together everything we do and it hits the spot: all about beauty."

Hagar operates the business with paramedical aesthetician Penny Doolin and massage therapist Kia Fedinic.

Together, the three offer a "complete experience" of hair and body treatments for male and female customers.

Doolin, who formerly operated Expressions of the Heart, focuses on the "Apeel" part of the spa, a pun which refers to chemical peels, as well as epidermal leveling, microdermabrasion, and other such treatments involving the best in skin care products.

"Part of it is introducing people to something new," she said. "I think people will be more drawn into a new service agent to offer new things to them if they're just coming in for a haircut and want to try something else.

"It's possibly one of the quickest renovation projects I've ever embarked on but also one of the most rewarding. It's wonderful to have a beautiful environment and people to work with, and do what I love — hair and skin."

Doolin said they are compiling daily salon and day spa packages.

"It really incorporates all of us and it's a really nice gift to give to somebody," she said.

Sandwich shop re-visits extra service option

Competition between restaurants can sometimes come down to what operations each one offers, which is why one Craig eatery has brought back a familiar element.

Subway Sandwiches, 1420 W. Victory Way, recently re-opened its drive-thru window.

The drive-thru service was part of the business when it opened in the mid-1990s, but was inoperative in recent years.

With the new addition, Subway staff can better service customers in a rush to take home the freshly made sandwiches from the restaurant's menu, which also includes the frozen confections of The Country's Best Yogurt.

Subway, which also provides catering, is in the midst of its customer appreciation month, which offers $2 specials on the 6-inch Cold Cut Combo and Meatball Marinara.

For those interested in a bigger meal still at a good price, the Featured Footlong for December is the Western Egg & Cheese.
