Lotus Beauty Salon in Singapore’s capital has closed after its owner lost his heart, the owner told the Straits Times.
“I am so sad and so shocked,” said the owner of the popular beauty salon on the city’s Central Business District (CBD) on Monday.
“This is the end of the world for me.
I cannot even talk about it,” he said, adding that he will not open another beauty salon until he gets a heart transplant.
“What kind of world is this?
This is the first time I have ever felt this way.
I don’t want to leave this place, so I can’t open another one,” the owner added.
Lotus Beauty salon, one of Singapore’s most popular beauty salons, closed its doors on December 18 after owner Tan Wan Chin lost his job.
Tan Wan is now looking for another employee to fill his vacant position, and he said he is looking for a buyer to buy the business.
The salon, which is known for its luxurious, organic products, had been selling for about $200 per day.
It closed after Tan’s heart transplant surgery in May this year.
In an interview with The Straits Observer, Tan said that he was looking for someone to take over the business, after the closure of Lotus Beauty, and that he had already received offers.
He said that the closure was a personal tragedy for him.
“In my heart, I have always loved Lotus Beauty and I wanted to open a salon for myself.
But unfortunately I have to say this is the last resort,” Tan said.
“But I still want to reopen the salon,” he added.
The owner also said that while the clinic’s website and social media accounts were currently up, it would not be possible to reopen Lotus Beauty as it is located in an area with high crime.
Tan said he will still keep the clinic open and give his services to the community, although he would close the doors when he is able to.
