A longtime business has moved locations and expanded.
The Grand Ol’e Barber Shop, formerly located next to Bert’s Deli and renting that space from Trigo’s, moved last fall to Greig Ave. into the place where New Attitudes and Hairwaves was when that business owner decided to close and retire.
“It’s bigger, brighter, better, has more parking and it’s easy access for customers,” said barber Reva Jurgeleit, who’s renting the space.
“I came down to look at some articles she (previous tenant) had for sale. It was almost empty. I moved in two days later. That was it.”
The five other staff members consist of three barbers and two lady stylists.
One stylist is from Abbotsford and Josie Summerfelt has been in Terrace for 40 years, said Jurgeleit.
And there’s a lot of differences between a barber and hair stylist, said Jurgeleit.
Barber use clippers a lot and do hot shaves and hair stylists do a lot of scissors work, she said.
Her shop still has walk-in service so no appointment is necessary but can be made.
It’s decorated with her antiques, including a barber chair from 1948 and others made to look similar.
Her clients followed her to the new location and she welcomes new clients.
