Nail Salon Joins Honeygo Crossing, 6 Vacancies Remain

P&W Nail Spa opened last week at the Perry Hall shopping center along Belair Road.


The five-year-old shopping center at Belair Road and Honeygo Boulevard is beginning to fill out.

P&W Nail Spa joined last week, becoming the second tenant in a strip of eight red brick storefronts.

hair salon in August 2011, moving after 11 years at . A freestanding and flank the strip. 

"A lot of it is related to the economy," said Ben Frederick, owner of Ben Frederick Realty, Inc. and leasing agent for Honeygo Crossing.

Frederick also said the center's leasing prices are "probably a little more than what other older centers are asking."

Rent comes to about $3,000 per month, which he said is standard for a new building in that area.

"It's just a matter of time. As the economy improves, we'll see more tenants—one at a time," Frederick said, adding that he's discussing a lease agreement with a casual restaurant for one of the spaces.

Tim Duong, co-owner of P&W Nail Spa, said he's satisfied with his shop's new location. He chose it, in part, because family members live nearby, and because, he said, Perry Hall is a "friendly" community.

"We don't even have enough employees for all the business we have right now," Duong said. As a grand opening promotion, all of the salon's services are 30 percent off until April 6.

Stephanie Baltusis, a worker, received a manicure on Friday.

"We've been waiting for what seems like forever for [the nail salon] to open," Baltusis said. "I love it."

Not only was Friday the nail salon's first full day in operation, it was also Shear Genius' 23rd anniversary since first opening in Perry Hall. The salon celebrated with cake and champagne.

Shear Genius manager Kathy Lesko said the two businesses are complimentary.

"I think the nail salon will do great having us next to them" Lesko said. "The center is just a great location, being along Belair Road and having good signage."

Still confused, Paul. Do you or do you not think there should be laws restricting the amount of signs businesses can post? If there are sign laws, there must be people who enforce these laws. If Mike Pierce does not like a certain sign, and that sign is illegal, he has every right to report the business. If nobody cared, and if (as you say) Code Enforcement only responds to complaints, Belair Road would not be pretty.

DS, I don't really care for your welcome or your assumption that I didn't research where I built. Did you ever considered that I built where I did because I have family in the area or that I work downtown and don't want to be more rural? Did you ever consider that I have lived here for 16 years and that I am well aware of the tax implications? No. You just shot your mouth off.

Other Tim, my point is the following, common sense sign regulation is not a bad thing. Mike Pierce doesn't care whether or not the regulation makes any sense, only if it follows the rules written by someone not living in the business world. The writer of the regulation doesn't care either. For example, electronic signs in Baltimore County cannot change their message more tha once every 15 seconds. Mike P. can confirm that, so Mike sits outside a business with a stopwatch protecting us from what?
