(WIAT) — An Ohio woman has proven that the customer is always right.

The owners of an Akron tanning salon told Kelly McGrevey that she was too overweight to use their tanning beds.

They told her only after she had already purchased a membership.

McGrevey took her shock to social media and garnered responses from around the world.

“I’m not really the person to stick up for [myself],” McGrevey said. “That was totally out of character for me to do that.”

McGrevey did get her money back, and another salon in the area offered her a free one month membership.
