First of all, the hours on this page are wrong. This place changes its hours nearly everyday for a number of reasons, none of which make sense. Once I walked up to go tanning at 5:30 p.m. on a Tuesday when storms were in the forecast and a sign on the door said, "The Tan Co. is closed due to the threat of inclement weather." Right. Second, it is overpriced. Especially if you want to tan without a monthly membership. I went in with a Groupon in March or April and was disappointed they were trying to trick people into buying memberships, acting as though your Groupon wouldn't be valid unless you agreed to pay their monthly fees or start by trying out their more expensive beds. Very gimmicky, very bad hours, very rude staff. It also takes a really long time to get signed in. Which is all a shame because it is a great location and the beds are good and clean. I wouldn't waste my time going to The Tan Co., not when there are plenty of other places to tan in Lawrence.
