Grand nail spa in Singapore opens to the public
SAN FRANCISCO — A manicure salon in a suburb of Singapore that offers manicures, pedicures and manicure services is open for business, the government said on Tuesday.
The Grand Nail Spa in Serangoon, Singapore, was established in 2014, said the Singapore Government.
It is now operating out of a warehouse on the outskirts of Singapore.
I was a bit nervous because I was a little bit unsure how it would work, said Lee, the owner of the salon.
If I were to open it up for business in Singapore, I would not have to wait long.
After my business partner in the salon, who has also worked at the spa, started working there, I knew that this was the place to open.
In 2017, Singapore’s government announced plans to launch a pilot program that would see manicure and pedicure shops in public.
This would allow people to walk into a salon and pay for manicures and pedics.
Lee and other salon owners have long lobbied for such a program to open, arguing that it would help people with physical and mental health problems.
“If people are able to access these services at affordable prices, the demand for these services would be there,” Lee said.
More than 100 companies, including the National Health Service, the Ministry of Health, and the Singapore Institute of Technology, have registered to register manicures at the salon so far.
People can pay by cash or credit card.
We will open it as soon as we can, Lee said, adding that it will be a one-hour appointment.
Singapore’s health ministry has not yet said when the pilot program will start, but it expects to open a shop in 2021.
For now, the salon owners will be able to offer manicures to customers for a fee.
