My mother is in a wheelchair due to a stroke she suffered almost 11 years ago. Urbane refused service to her 2 years ago because she couldn't climb into their big chairs. I think that is unacceptable and inexcusable. TLC Nails right down the street services her monthly now, and does so in a polite way, which always makes her feel welcome. They have to use a bucket because she can't get intot heir chairs either, but they do so with a smile. My mom and I left Urbane in tears the day she was refused service. Please consider using another nail salon.

Kristin, that breaks my heart and I'm so sorry you and your Mom had to go through that. Your family is better in a place that has some compassion and can offer your Mom the dignity she so deserves. She is a wonderful woman and good for TLC for helping her feel welcome :-) Urbane...boo :-( TLC...yay! :-)
