Eastern Spa and Nails, a local favorite, has recently opened their second location at 5920 Holly Avenue

Eastern Spa and Nails and Hawthorne House Partners, LLC, an investment partnership of Corinthian Real Estate, Inc., announced that they have entered into a long-term lease agreement for a new Eastern Spa and Nails salon location in Albuquerque, set to open in November 2018.

Eastern Spa and Nails will open in the Holly Place Shops at 5920 Holly Avenue in northeast Albuquerque and will occupy 1230 square feet of retail space. Other businesses in the shopping center include Jason’s Deli, Domino’s Pizza, and Gymboree. This will be the salon’s second location, with the original located at 5809 Juan Tabo NE.

Hawthorne House Partners, LLC was represented by Steve Lyon and George Chronis of Pegasus Retail and Eastern Spa and Nails was represented by Amy Flores and Connie Pryde of Commercial Real Estate Management.

“We love seeing local business owners succeed and are excited to partner with Eastern Spa and Nails as they continue to grow,” said Brad Jones, CEO of Corinthian Real Estate, Inc. and Manager of Hawthorne House Partners, LLC.

Eastern Spa and Nails is a family owned and operated salon that offers manicures, pedicures, artificial nails, nail polish designs, eyelash extensions and waxing services. Thao “Kayla” Pham and Giang “Yankee” Ngo opened the first location on Juan Tabo in 2012. Originally from Vietnam, the entrepreneurial couple previously owned a machine shop in California before moving to Albuquerque in 2009. After working as certified nail technicians in other salons, Kayla and Yankee noticed many salons using low quality products and improper sanitation techniques. The couple wanted to improve the quality of salon services available to the people of Albuquerque and thus decided to open the first location of Eastern Spa and Nails.

Kayla and Yankee pride themselves in using the best quality products and sanitation techniques available including keeping products fresh by throwing out any products over 6 months old, ensuring disposable products are one-time use only and sanitizing metal tools in a medical grade sanitation device. The most popular service at the spa is SNS dipping powder, a long-lasting nail finish that contains 5 different vitamins and calcium to keep nails strong and healthy. Their attention to quality has not gone unnoticed; this year, Eastern Spa and Nails won the Albuquerque Journal’s Readers’ Choice Award for the Best Spa and Nail Salon in the city! After much success, the family decided to expand operations and open a new location in the Holly Place Shops.

“We are excited to open our second location in the Holly Place Shops. We want to be closer to our customers and provide quality salon services to more people in the city,” said Ngo.
