There are a lot of sounds one expects to hear at a corner barber shop ~ the buzzing sound of the shears, the snipping sound of the scissors, the squeaky sound of the swivel chair as it spins in place and the familiar sound of a door opening and closing.
But at David’s Greenwood Barber Shop in Warwick, these sounds are trumped by the sounds of laughter, friendly bantering and discussions on the state of affairs of our country. This is the closest thing we have in today’s fast-paced world to the town square, where old friends and multiple generations of fathers and sons alike come to get their hair cut, and to “solve the problems” of our day.
David’s Greenwood Barber Shop has stood at this site for thirty years – that was THREE consecutive decades as of this fall! Dave Picozzi, the salon’s owner and longtime barber, even received a personal citation from the State’s House of Representatives, recognizing his invaluable 30 years serving our community.
Many of Dave’s numerous clients have been coming here for all thirty of those years. Some have been coming since they got their first haircut as elementary-aged boys. Some are part of three generations – father, son and grandson! Those who come for the first time come back, time and time again. Dave and his son Geno are mainstays on the Warwick landscape. Come in and check out this dynamic duo.
There was a time when the virtue of loyalty was prized above most anything else. Small business owners like David Picozzi and his son Geno thank all their loyal clients after all these years.
After 30 years, there have been some changes 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 now only find him at his styling station in the mornings (until noon) during the salon’s regular hours.
Furthermore, Dave is now working by appointment only. This takes some forethought and is a departure from the salon’s usual policy. Book your appointment with Dave when you see him, or in advance on this website, Vagaro.com.
If you are a client of Geno’s, he still takes only walk-ins. He is available on weekdays from 10:30am to 5:00pm (and until noon on Saturdays).
If you are contemplating a new look this fall or winter, or you just want to try someplace different, come to this longstanding, traditional barber shop in Warwick.
