Ohio Woman Told She’s ‘Too Fat’ to Tan [VIDEO]

Aloha Tanning had no issue with Kelly McGrevey’s weight when she purchased a tanning package from the Norton (near Akron), Ohio tanning salon, but when she returned the next day, the salon employee refused service, saying she was too heavy to use the equipment.

McGrevey then asked for a refund, but tells an Akron TV station that the employee said, “No. We don’t give refunds.” He cited the salon’s newly-implemented policy regarding weight limits, but refused to show McGrevey that policy.

She filed a police report after speaking with Justin Hilerman, the manager of Aloha Tanning. “He asked if I was aware of how many times he had to replace the acrylic on those beds ‘because of heavy people?’”

An Aloha Tanning location in Swartz Creek closed several years ago. That facility, no longer affiliated with Aloha, operates as The Sun Shack.

What do you think? Should tanning salons be allowed to implement policies about customers’ weight, or is this a form of discrimination?
