The popular Norwich spa, Thai Wellbeing on Red Lion Street, has closed it doors for the final time following financial difficulties. The Baan Phraya thai restaurant, which was under common ownership, has also closed. The closure comes with the loss of nine jobs in the spa and four in the restaurant.
However, insolvency experts at Parker Andrews have been working with the company to secure a sale of the business assets, including its customer database, which completed on Tuesday (12 August) to The Cottage Beauty Salon on Timberhill.
Parker Andrews, said: “The business underwent a restructure in the autumn of 2013, following which the director was monitoring trading closely. Unfortunately, targets were not met, and so the director has taken the decision that the business should close. A sale of the customer database was achieved in a short timescale and we are pleased that the buyer was able to act quickly to secure this sale.
Jemma & Nick Winzor-Saile, owners of The Cottage, added: “We look forward to welcoming the former clients of Thai Wellbeing to our salon and we shall be contacting the clients shortly. We have also been contacted by some of the former Thai Wellbeing therapists and are discussing options with them. Our services are extremely complimentary to what Thai Wellbeing offered and so we are very excited that this deal has been secured. Customers of the spa are asked to contact The Cottage on 01603 763009, by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting www.cottagesalon.co.uk.
