A new window-tinting business in meridian held a big celebration today for its grand opening.
Perfect Shade Window Tinting along 8th Street had plenty of music and food for its first customers. Owner Exell Jackson says many people don't realize the health benefits of having your vehicle's windows tinted. He says his goals are to use his business to get out that message and to glorify God.
"The sun causes UV rays and UV rays cause cancer. If you get your windows tinted, my tint cuts down 99 percent of the UV rays," Jackson says. "That's a perfect reason to get your windows tinted. And we do have legal tint. It's light, so if you don't want dark tint, we can do it lighter for you."
Perfect Shade is open from 8 to 5, but Jackson says they will also schedule appointments if necessary.
