SPA CHAKRA CLOSES U.S. DOORS: Spa Chakra Inc., which owns the financially troubled spa located at 663 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, as well as 18 other spas globally, apparently closed its U.S. doors Aug. 20, according to a voice message left on the phone of the Fifth Avenue location. “As of Friday, Aug. 20, 2010, all Spa Chakra-operated U.S. spa locations will cease operation,” according to the message.
Former employee Mary Cohen, a hairstylist, confirmed that the Fifth Avenue location closed in an e-mail she sent out to clients Tuesday announcing that they can now find her at her new location, Manhattan-based Senses Salon. Cohen said she sent out the e-mail because Spabooker, an online reservation site for the spa, was still sending out appointment confirmations.
