New Barbershop shaping up

Looks like the third Rochester location of The Barbershop — A Hair Salon for Men is shaping up.

Arlie Allen along with business partners, Paul and Leah Leisen, own all three locations. The Kasson trio opened their first Med City shop in 2008 near Wal-Mart North and Gander Mountain.

A couple months later, a second one opened in southwest Rochester near CiCi's Pizza and Kohl's.Barbershop3

"Since our north location is turning away customers, we thought this would be a good place to be," says Allen.

The new shop will have seven stations, like the south location. Each station has its own TV with a remote control for each customer. While they are waiting for their cuts, customers can snack on peanuts in the shell, recreating the flavor of classic barber shops from the past.

And did we forget to put the new address in this article? I looks like the strip mall on the corner of 3rd Ave. N.W. and Elton Hills Dr.

They must be pretty busy at the north location to be turning away customers!
It's nice to see businesses be successful and grow.

Every time I stop to get a cut they're busy, which is a great sign for a business! Glad to see they're so successful that they need to open yet another location! Congrats!

I've been to north one before and yea, its nice, unique, and a good place to get a hair cut, but I prefer the barbershop at hillcrest when I get a haircut in Rochester.
