NANCY SPAHNTY SALON, Ohio – A few days after a tip from an unidentified woman at a Nancies Beauty Salon on Facebook garnered nearly $2500 in online praise, the small salon in Ohio is shutting down.NANCY SAHN TY, a popular, local beauty salon in the rural village of Nancises, Ohio, posted an update on Friday morning, which said that the business had “been closed for a couple weeks due to health reasons and that we are working on an alternate plan.”
It’s not clear why the salon has been shut down, but the owner of the salon, Krisna Sahl, told the local media that it was due to an illness that had forced her to take time off work to care for her mother.
Sahl said that a couple of weeks ago, the owner was diagnosed with a cold and the salon had to shut down.
Salk, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, said that she was contacted by a customer who gave her $25 on Facebook and she received the $25 tip on the spot.
“It’s one of the most memorable things I’ve ever had,” she told ABC News.
“It’s been amazing.
It’s really a testament to her that I’ve been able to continue to do what I do.”
Sahl told ABC affiliate WKYC that she would not have made the same $25 from Facebook had she known about the illness.
“The idea that someone would put that kind of amount of money on something like that was not even in my mind,” she said.
“But that’s the way it works.
People come up to you and say ‘I want you to have a good time and I want you be a great beauty professional,'” she added.
Saks Beauty Salon closed in May of 2018 after nearly four years in business, according to its Facebook page.
In the months since, Saks Beauty was featured on People magazine and a local TV station.
The salon has also been featured on CNN and USA Today.
Sakhi, the NANCYS owner, told WKYD that she plans to use the money to help pay for medical expenses.
