Over twenty-five years ago, David Picozzi had a vision of a hometown barber shop, the kind of place where men and boys could go to shed a few unwanted hairs ~ and the cares of the world ~ all in one place. Little did he know back then that his barber shop, David’s Greenwood Barbershop, would endure two-plus decades and that it would remain a familiar and steadfast landmark in Warwick after all those years. This month marks the 27th year that David’s Greenwood Barbershop became more than a dream for Picozzi, it became a time-tested reality.
One might ask, what is the secret to David’s longevity? Well, for loyal customers like Ed Murray, the answer is clear and straightforward. It is simply the quality of service that has been delivered here consistently and reliably since 1993. In Ed’s words: “They are awfully decent people, and very good barbers too!”
Mr. Murray is referring to David and his talented son Geno. Dave and Geno can be found cutting their customers’ hair at the shop five days a week. Together, they have accumulated a long list of faithful customers, many of whom had been coming here for all the shop’s twenty-seven years. These customers know their hair will be cut with a steady hand and attention to detail. They know that cut will be affordable. They know that they will be treated like family because, in those intervening years, they have become more than customers to Dave and Geno ~ they have become family.
David’s Greenwood Barbershop has long been the “go-to” destination in Warwick for both traditional and contemporary cuts. Men and boys of all ages have been coming to this longstanding barber shop for literally generations. Whether it is a classic look you are after or if you have a trendy new look in mind, they will do their best to achieve that look, and get you back on your way in no time flat. David’s Greenwood Barbershop remains, to this day, a favorite of both regulars and newcomers alike.
During this challenging period, 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.
