In a world where “social distancing,” “working from home” and wearing masks are now commonplace, it seems to be harder and harder to build a community, the kind of community where neighbors gather to hold face-to-face conversations, to swap stories of “days gone by” or just to shoot the breeze. Even amid all these changes, there is a place where that sense of “community” that we all seek still exists, and that is the longstanding barbershop of David’s Greenwood Barbershop.
David’s Greenwood Barbershop has been an enduring presence on the Warwick landscape for nearly 27 years. It is a “men’s-only” barbershop on Post Road where generations of men and boys have come to get their hair cut for all those years. It is a place where they have come to find that brotherhood, friendship, and camaraderie that seems to have been lost in our often-confusing world.
Thankfully, salons are now open across the region, and that includes David’s Greenwood Barbershop. Many will be grateful to see the welcome smiles and familiar swivel chairs of Dave Picozzi, the owner of the salon, and his son Geno. Like SO many other small, family-run businesses who are struggling through this crisis, they need your continued support and patronage. And if you are struggling with an untamed and overgrown hairdo after months of isolation, you could use their help too!!
The shop is finally OPEN for your business ~ no appointments are required! Walk-ins only.
As has always been the case, you will find Dave and Geno are already waiting for you, scissors in hand. Many may ask what has kept their hometown business so relevant and busy since 1993? The reason for their success is their consistency, affordability, and personal customer care. There are no frills or slick gimmicks here, just the kind of service you would expect from a business that has served the community over two and a half decades of competition, ever-changing trends, times of economic uncertainty and even times of global pandemic.
During these difficult months, Dave would like to thank all his customers who have supported him and Geno for over two and a half decades. He also wants you to know that, long before this outbreak, he always took the cleanliness of his shop and the well-being of his clients very seriously. A sign on the door of his shop admonishes his clients to postpone their haircuts until they are healthy. The shop is spotless and has always been kept clean, well before it was ever mandated to be so. If it matters to you, it matters to Dave and Geno.
