Moving from Atlanta to fast-paced New York City, there’s been little time for simply kicking back and relaxing, or even treating myself to a nice massage or manicure/pedicure. Every now and then I can find time between the hustle and bustle of city life for pampering, but most times it’s few and far between. Anyone out there feel my pain?
Recently, Groupon conducted a survey using their own customer analytics to see which city in America is the most pampered. As a tri-state transplant who now fully understands the term concrete jungle, I was sure that New York would rank fairly low on the list, if not the lowest.
The most pampered city went to Salt Lake City, which had the most purchased Groupon deals in beauty categories like massages, haircuts, manicures, pedicures, facials, teeth whitening, and tanning sessions. Phoenix, Dallas, Columbus, and Austin all followed respectively as the top five. Interestingly, Los Angeles ranked in at number 10, and as I expected, New York City didn’t even rank in the top 25.
“We’re seeing more and more people recognize the importance of taking care of themselves inside and out––and doing it for an amazing value,” said Silvija Martincevic, vice president and general manager of health, beauty and wellness, Groupon. “With more than 50,000 of the top salons and spas in our marketplace, Groupon has everything you need to pamper yourself from popular salon services to luxury spa treatments.”
Well, with the warm weather that’s beginning to flourish across the country, now is definitely the time to treat yourself for some much needed TLC at a great deal. Check out the top 25 most pampered cities in America below.
