Let that number sit with you for a while. In fact, let that number sit with you while you relax in the swivel chair of barber Dave Picozzi, the owner of his thirty-year “young” business, David’s Greenwood Barber Shop. David, and in more recent years his son Geno, has run this friendly neighborhood barber shop for three decades this month.
That is thirty years spent delivering personalized customer service, nurturing longstanding friendships, building a loyal clientele and snipping, cutting & clipping hair! This is an extraordinary accomplishment on its own but is made even more remarkable in a world of increasing competition and times of hardship. Chain salons. Worldwide pandemics. Economic highs and lows. Changing hairstyles. So many changes, yet David’s Greenwood Barber Shop remains true ~ not unchanged ~ but ever true to its high standards of quality workmanship and dedication to its customers.
Dave and Geno owe a huge debt of gratitude to their many customers ~ sons, brothers, fathers, grandfathers, and friends alike, some of whom have been taking a ride in that swivel chair for all 30 of the barber shop’s years. It is hard to overstate the degree of their thanks.
Many of these customers have become close friends ~ both in and out of the shop. One of those “tried and true” customers/friends is Tim Silvia. Some might recognize Tim’s name from placards around town that advertise homes he is representing as a realtor with RI Real Estate Services. Tim knows something about longevity as well, having been in the real estate industry for over 20 years. He is a huge fan of David and Greenwood Barber Shop. He has been coming to Dave for as long as he can remember.
As Tim says: “Dave just knows what I like: high, tight and clean.” Every. Single. Time. Thanks for your loyalty, Tim!
This is what customers have come to expect of both Dave and Geno. Consistency. Dependability. Professionalism.
After 30 years, there are some changes on the horizon for David’s Greenwood Barber Shop. Make note. It is finally time for Dave to enjoy the “fruits of his labor.” If you are a customer of Dave’s, you will only find him at his styling station in the MORNINGS during the salon’s regular hours, beginning the third of October. Furthermore, beginning at the first of the year, Dave will be working by appointment only. This takes some advanced planning and is a departure from the salon’s usual policy.
If you are a client of Geno’s, he still takes ONLY walk-ins. His schedule remains the same!
David’s Greenwood Barber Shop is located at 2879 Post Road. Hours are Tuesday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturdays, from 8:00am to NOON. Remember, you will only find Dave here in the mornings from this time forward! Men and boys (ten years and older) are welcome.
