The sudden closure of The Body Bar on the north end of The Junction brought in some questions – and after several days of research, we finally have some answers. For starters, Nita, who owns Salon 08 around the corner, says she has purchased the space and will reopen it as NRG Spa. Regarding Body Bar customers’ questions about previously purchased gift certificates, Nita referred us to The Body Bar’s former owner, Therese. We have just spoken by phone with Therese, who says she now has her own practice and is working in a Junction space shared by multiple wellness businesses (upstairs from JaK’s) and is there 3-9 pm Fridays and Sundays, and that she also is hosting lunch events at noon Wednesdays at Buddha Ruksa. But most importantly, for those who have Body Bar gift certificates, Therese confirms she is honoring those and asks that people holding them call her at 206-226-5175.
