Business of the Week

We would like to congratulate the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Week:

Belle Amie Day Spa & Salon
111 Gilmer St.
Sulphur Springs, TX 75482
Susan Gradick-owner


Thought for the Week:

"Belle Amie is a locally owned day spa located on the square downtown. The spa is 2 1/2 years old and still remains a haven for locals on the quest to find an oasis of tranquility. With downtown construction and turmoil right outside the doors, Belle Amie offers relaxation along with its full spa menu for clients from young to ‘experienced’ age. Also, if there were ever a time when men needed a spa, it's now. Given the economy and mounting stresses of everyday life, men are in need of the spa. They realize that they not only deserve a healing sanctuary, but that looking good and feeling good are important to their careers. This month there are specials for the men with massage and hand treatments or ‘man-icures.’ The Cowboy Pedicure is a foot service known as a ‘men's foot detailing’ with a bourbon exfoliation. Men tend to like the organic products and “Green Spa” approach that Belle Amie uses. The skin care here is based on theEminence Organic line. The staff just returned from the International Spa and Dallas Spa shows where they increased their knowledge of both products and services. Belle Amie invites both men and women to come, relax, and enjoy the spa.”

— Susan Gradick, owner

That’s all for now ... have a GREAT week!
