Safari Spa and Salon moving to Clearview Market Square

After a decade in Deer Park Centre, Safari Spa & Salon is moving north — by about 30 blocks.

After a decade in Deer Park Centre, Safari Spa & Salon is moving north — by about 30 blocks.

The locally owned business, which operates as an Aveda salon, is scheduled to relocate to Clearview Market Square at the corner of 30th Avenue and 67th Street on March 1. It will remain open at its current site until then.

Corine Sim, who owns Safari Spa & Salon with Jason Volk, said its new 3,000-square-foot premises will be double the size of its existing bay. Spa rooms will increase in number to seven from four, manicure stations to four from two, pedicure chairs to seven from three, and hair-styling stations to nine from eight.

There will be a fireplace in each spa room, as well as one in a central gathering area.

The new spa and salon will have steam showers for men and women, and the expanded layout will allow for group spa services and couples massages.

Sim anticipates that staff will increase to about 30, from the current roster of 20. In addition to four more aestheticians and two more hair stylists, she expects to boost Safari’s complement of massage therapists to six from two — to accommodate the growing local demand for massage services.

Safari Spa & Salon offers massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, body wraps, body polishes, aromatherapy, waxings, and hair styling for men, women and children, among other services. It’s open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Once in its new location, Safari will also operate from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays and statutory holidays, excluding Good Friday, Easter, Christmas and New Years Day.
