Last summer, Courtney Stokes announced her beauty spa was leaving its location in Martinez. In January, Stokes began serving her clients in a popular Evans retail center.
Stokes, a licensed esthetician, owns SUEDE Beauty Bar + Spa located at 609 Ponder Place, Suite A off North Belair Road. Her previous location was at 101 Maple Drive, Suite 5 next door to Salon Thirty Seven. SUEDE offers a variety of services, including facials, chemical peels, and scalp therapy.
Other businesses in that center include HireQuest, Harmonie Medical, and the JANUS Research Group.
In a Facebook post dated July 11, 2022, she announced she wasn’t renewing her lease in the Martinez location due to demands from her landlord.
“It will be sad to leave all the renovations and hard work put into making that space what it is, but my hands are tied,” Stokes said in the post.
In a Jan. 2023 post, she announced the opening of the Evans location.
“I am so excited to begin 2023 in a new, beautiful location,” Stokes said.
She shares her retail space with other estheticians: WINK Lashes by Amber and Willow Esthetics Studio.
SUEDE is open Monday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday and Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit SUEDE Beauty Bar.
