SPRING VALLEY — Valley Tanning, located at 128 E. Dakota St. in Spring Valley, is a full service tanning salon that opened in April 2013.

Chuck and Theresa Taliani are the owners of the business that is equipped with five tanning beds (four lay-down and one stand-up).

“We opened because there was no tanning places in Spring Valley,” said the Talianis. “We also thought it would compliment our wedding and prom business.”

The Talianis remodeled an empty building for Valley Tanning, located next to Valley Flowers, which they also own.

“We carry a large variety of lotions, jewelry and beach attire,” they said. “We are not your average tanning salon.”

Hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. No appointments are necessary.

Call 815-663-8417 with any questions. Weekly specials can be found on the business’ Facebook page.

The new Illinois law that went into affect on Jan. 1 banning those under 18 from using tanning beds hasn’t hurt Valley Tanning.

“A small percentage of our business was from under 18 years old,” they said. “It didn’t affect us that much.”
