The new owners of the Carol Martin Salon & Spa, 137 East Ave., Suite 105, held a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting March 4. The original owner, Carol Martin, got her break to become a business owner 43 years ago. In January, she passed the baton to longtime employees Kelsey O’Laughlin and Jen Earl as they embark on their own dream of ownership. Far from retiring, Martin will continue to work four days a week at the salon. Taking part in the ribbon cutting were Mayor Dave Kline, Tallmadge Chamber Executive Director Terry Bumpas, the salon’s owners and staff, and Carol Martin.
