“The amount of support has been amazing,” says Palace Barber Shop owner
On his last day at the old location on Stegall Drive, barber Albert Hamrick cuts the hair of Jackson Hodge, a second generation customer who has been visiting Palace Barber Shop for four years. The new shop, located just two blocks north, is already open.
