Pedi-Couture Sandals

by NLS Staff | November 1, 2008 | Creations by Alan Stuart | FeetRetail | Bookmark +

Clients waste time (theirs and, more importantly, yours) waiting for their toenails to dry enough to step away from the pedicure area and slide back into their shoes. Why not offer them an incentive to BYOS — that’s “bring your own sandals” — the next time they come in?

These adorable, reusable Pedi-Couture sandals from Creations by Alan Stuart are the perfect time- and planet-saving fit. Complete with non-skid rubber soles and hand-sewn toe separators, the sandals are a great item to sell in your salon’s retail area. Then, offer a small discount, say 5% of the service price, to clients for each time they bring the sandals to their pedicure appointments (sort of like the cup discount at Starbucks Coffee). You’ll both be doing the planet a favor (no more tissue or cotton wasted as toe separators) and possibly saving yourself enough time between clients for a well-deserved BYOB (that’s “bring your own break,” people).
