Morning Star Trading Company and The Spa Mart Create Partnership

AUSTIN, TX, April 01, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Morning Star Trading Company and The Spa Mart, both wholesale spa distributors serving Central Texas spa and wellness professionals, are delighted to announce their partnership. Morning Star Trading Company was established 27 years ago to serve the Austin, TX metro and surrounding cities and build a community for massage therapists. Founder and spa industry pioneer, Melissa Gonzales, created a beautiful brick and mortar business that supplies massage oils, massage tables, spa products and gift items to massage therapists and spas around the country.

The Spa Mart, a curated spa distribution company, carries over 3,000 spa supplies and products in its climate-controlled, 7,000 sq. foot facility in Georgetown. They offer local delivery with their van, Cotton Ball, to both Austin and San Antonio and ship nationwide via UPS—orders over $49.99 receive complimentary delivery in those metro areas. Spa industry veteran and Cofounder of The Spa Mart, Teddy Lester, is thrilled to be partnering with Gonzales and continuing to serve Morning Star’s customers. Lester stated, “Morning Star Trading Company is an Austin institution for the spa and especially the massage therapy community. Our team of spa professionals at The Spa Mart is dedicated to serving the needs of our spa and spa professional partners and welcome the opportunity to humbly serve Morning Star’s customers.” Moreover, The Spa Mart cofounders, Lester and Tori Clark, are “honored to continue to have Gonzales’ input as we embark on this endeavor and are very thankful to her for bestowing her trust in us—we will strive to make her proud.”

On April 19th, as Morning Star Trading Company closes the doors to its physical location, The Spa Mart, will continue to carry on its spa products and become the new supplier for spa professionals in Central Texas. Longtime Morning Star employee Lauren Hess will continue to supply aromatherapy, herbal and gift products at her new store Take Care Apothecary in Lockhart, TX.
