Our Story

The Glow's story began on September 14, 2021 as a new and exciting adventure for Kelly Case, who is the owner of The Glow tanning salon in Bradford.  When the previous tanning salon location owner was looking to sell the business, Kelly and her husband, Tom, seized the opportunity to take over the business and turn it into The Glow tanning salon that people know and love today.

When Kelly's daughter, Kendall, was born she and her husband decided she would be a full-time mom. Kelly was involved in Kendall's school and activities, volunteered in the community, and helped at her husband's business. But as Kendall got older, Kelly was looking for more of a personal challenge in her life. This was the perfect opportunity for her to jump into as she always enjoyed the tanning experience and was a previous customer of the older tanning salon location. 

Today, The Glow is a family affair where Kelly's mom (Janet), brother (Matt), and sister-in-law (Tricia) are all available to help with the business. Kendall also works at The Glow now too! Kelly takes pride in running the business, offering exceptional customer service, and is a place individuals enjoy coming to in Bradford, PA, and the surrounding areas.
