West Side Family Business

The Albuquerque area has landed two new business owners who have a unique name for their future retail enterprise, interesting back stories and a commitment to giving back to a favorite charity.

The Pink Ribbon, scheduled to open this fall at 10301 Cottonwood Park NW, will be a high-end nail salon and spa operated by Tina Carmichael and her fiancé, Joe Nguyen. Tina is a breast cancer survivor, and a portion of the salon’s proceeds will be donated to cancer research. The salon was named The Pink Ribbon to bring awareness to breast cancer.

Joe and Tina were both born in Vietnam. Their fathers were American servicemen. Joe was able to locate his father a few years ago through DNA research. With Joe’s help, Tina discovered last year that her biological father and three half-sisters are living in New Mexico, so they are moving to the Albuquerque area from the East Coast so she can be close to the family she had never known.

NAI Maestas & Ward brokers Randall Parish and Cindy Campos represented the couple on the deal for the new business space – a 1,200-square-foot store in a brand-new retail strip right in the heart of the Cottonwood trade area.
