Victory Barbershop owner Wendy Crawford has a motto: “simplicity is a good way to live.”
It’s also a good way to run a business.
On Saturday, Victory will celebrate its 75th anniversary as a barbershop.
Even when Merle Shaw opened the place in 1941, the philosophy was to keep it simple, as people came in and out wanting nothing more than a haircut or a straight razor shave.
This simplicity seems to appeal to a fair number in the community now just as it did then, Crawford said, as the doors have stayed open thanks to many regulars.
