Barber shop busier during school year
Jim Lavender, a barber at the Red Rooster Barber Shop, said customers tend to dwindle when school isn’t in session. “These last two weeks is our slowest time of the whole year," Lavender said. "Now on Monday we’re going to have 26,000 coming back. And so it does help.” All those extra bodies helps the Red Rooster double - or even triple - its business. “During the summer, sometimes we do say 6, 6, 10 a day summertime," Lavender said, "doing upwards of 18, 20 a day during school. So it makes a difference.”
