Polish Bottle puts some glam in neighborhood
If all the fun in the sun you had this summer has made a mess of your glowing skin, there is good news: The Polish Bottle at 2163 Young Ave.offers Cooper-Young Community Association members a 10 percent discount on facials, pedicures, and waxing services every time they visit and show their CYCA membership card.
The Polish Bottle is one of our newer membership sponsors, and it just celebrated its one-year anniversary in Cooper-Young in October.
“What makes our location cool and unique [is the variety of] restaurants around us,” Felicia Scarpati-Lomax of The Polish Bottle says. “A lot of our clients do Girls’ Night Out or brunch. They start off pampering themselves with us, and they have a host of restaurants to choose from when they are ready to eat. A lot of cute boutique stores are popping up, too.”
Scarpati-Lomax chose to become a membership sponsor for the CYCA because she loves the neighborhood. Having grown up in a community in New York where “mom and pop” businesses were a staple, she feels right at home here in Cooper-Young. She enjoys talking to the other neighborhood business owners on a nearly daily basis, and the fact that most of The Polish Bottle’s customers are Midtowners reinforces the tight-knit, local vibe. In fact, she notes that residents of the neighborhood have been particularly supportive, saying CY “is a real community.”
In addition to the 10 percent discount on facials, pedicures and waxing services that The Polish Bottle offers CYCA members all year long, there will be a special offer during the holidays. The Polish Bottle will be collecting toys for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
“My family spent every holiday from Thanksgiving until Valentine’s Day at LeBonheur where my infant son, Charlie, died after complications due to a heart defect…so that hospital is very dear to my heart,” Scarpati-Lomax said. “If you bring in a toy, we will do a free manicure with the purchase of any pedicure service.”
But even if you’re not in the market for nail services, you can still drop off a new, unopened toy, and The Polish Bottle will see to it that it is delivered to a child at the hospital. The business will start collecting toys after Halloween, so there is no need to wait until December.
With the holidays just around the corner, there are still many opportunities to use the 10 percent discount through the end of the year so you can look your best for holiday events and photos. Not a member of the CYCA? There’s still time! You can join online at www.cooperyoung.org, fill out the membership form in this paper, call our Community Director at 272-CYCA (2922), or visit our community offices at 2298 Young Avenue — just down the street from The Polish Bottle.
