The Portage Trail tanning salon closed its doors in November, and Cuyahoga Falls officials are eager to see a new business move into the colonial brick space, located at 1602 Portage Tr.
Sun Seekers Tanning closed its doors in November, and as of Friday, no prospective business owner has stepped up to fill the 2,000-square-foot space. According to Summit Properties realtor Dean Corpas, Sun Seekers was in business for about a decade, and did quite well thanks to its proximity to Bolich Middle School. Corpas says another tanning salon would be ideal for this location, but what do you think? Tell us in the comments!

The Cashmere Cricket is back in town.
