Gentlemen's Barber Shop, 441 Percival Road: January 2012   3 comments

Posted at 9:31 pm in business

Interestingly, I cannot find this barber shop, on Percival Road between Decker Boulevard and Forest Drive, in any of my phonebooks. It does show up in google, but it's neither in the BellSouth white pages nor the BellSouth yellow pages. Commenter Sidney says it was there for 8 years until it ran into financial difficulties in January.

At any rate, judging by the current tenant, you can still get a severe haircut there!

  1. There is no listing in the phone books because the owner decided to cut the phone off years ago since all the barbers had cell phones. The owner re-opened another barbershop on Decker Blvd where another barbershop closed down a few months ago. Men of Standard barbershop closed down and the owner of Gentlemans re-opened under the name A.C. Barbershop. It's about a tenth of a mile from Percival Rd in front of Wellesley Place Apts.

  2. I may not remember this correctly, but I think this building was originally a Mobil station, like 35 years ago. We lived in Quail Run apartments, nearby, in the late 80s, and it was already something else by then.

  3. Yes it was a gas station. Then it was a tax service (I think it was Alice Tax or something that started with an A). Then Gentleman's Barbershop and now it's a tax service again.
