BARBER SHOP OPENS IN TAMWORTH SQUARE: GOOD VIBES ALL AROUND
July 27, 2021
After much anticipation, it was a big day in Tamworth Square when Barber Industries finally opened the doors on the new barbershop. After several set backs due to covid, we are up and running and getting great support from the Tamworth community. The barbershop has now been open for a few weeks and the feedback from customers has been both overwhelming and quite humbling.
Grand Opening Day
After a couple of delays in getting the doors open, we were ecstatic to get the go ahead for a grand opening day on July 17 and to offer half price haircuts to everyone on the day. There were balloons which were putting big smiles on the kids faces and loads of lollypops to keep those smiles in place all day. The biggest smiles however were coming from the haircuts, with custom patterns and color hairspray the order of the day. Something a little different for the young fella's and some real excitement to be seen.
Traditional Barbershop Vibe
The Barber Industries concept is about blending the tradition, aesthetics and nostalgia of the the world barbershop with the modern comforts of todays world. Our main man in Tamworth, Jacob, says;
"We are getting lots of positive feedback and good vibes all around. People are really curious when they see the shop and this leads them inside to try things out. The service may differ from what many blokes are used to and the experience seems to be hitting the mark. With some of the older gent's, it is almost like they have re-found something that they lost a long time ago. There is something that resonates with them and they seem to really appreciate what we offer here.”
Open Seven Days
Jacob also commented on the barbershop opening seven days a week and says;
“As far as I know we are the only barbershop in Tamworth that opens on Sundays and I believe we are filling a gap in the market there. Many people travel into town on a Sunday and it makes sense to be ready to service those blokes. There has been no shortage of customers on Sunday that's for sure. I have had so many people mention it and outline the added convenience that it offers. I am hopeful that if we keep ticking all the boxes, word will get around and our popularity will grow. I'm sure that the clientele appreciates our level of service and this will lead to growth and a loyal following.”
No Need For Bookings
For those who are interested to give the Barber Industries barbershop in Tamworth Square a crack, simply roll up and grab a barber chair or jump on the bench to wait in the queue. Bookings lead to salon style prices and nobody wants that. This is one of those timeless traditions that brings the old world customs into today's barbershop. If you need to wait, take a moment in time for yourself, a golden opportunity to take five and relax.
