We love this story!
Legendary Sea Cliff, NY barbershop Bart’s has continued to operate, despite plans to close last October.
Owner Joe Mazzeo had announced back in October his plans to close the establishment, with the 78 year old having worked in the shop that his father, Bartolomeo had opened, since the early 1960’s.
The Coronavirus pandemic, and subsequent lockdown last year actually forced Joe towards ‘a taste’ of retirement ahead of schedule. However he has since reopened, but is still passionate about selling the business to another barber who can take the business on.
Good luck to Joe. Joe is the epitome of what barbers mean to the communities they serve. We salute you Joe!
