New day spa will open this month
A local day spa is expanding its reach, and its opening is near.
The owner of SpaVa Premier Day Spa plans to open its second location on Franklin Road in Roanoke on Sept. 20. It’s been 10 years since owner Robyn Goodpasture landed this pampering business on Braeburn Drive in Salem.
And since last October, work crews have been renovating a second spot for SpaVa in a former doctor’s office building on 2610 Franklin Road. Goodpasture told me earlier this year that she wanted to expand to Roanoke to draw a larger client base.
Her current spa business brings in more than $1 million in revenue each year.
Still, opening her enterprise inside this 12,000 square foot structure has taken a little longer than Goodpasture initially planned. She had hoped for an April opening, after investing more than $2 million in the new venture.
The services offered at the new SpaVa will be similar to those at the Salem location, including SpaFit and Rejuva skin care. It also will house an Aveda salon, the Center for Bariatric Medicine, a men’s suite and a smoothie bar.
And if you’re pressed for time, Goodpasture said the new day spa will offer walk-in manicures and pedicures.
On Sept. 20, there will be an open house from noon to 4 p.m., with demonstrations, food, tours and prizes.
