The Striped Pole Celebrates its 4th Anniversary
Dean cutting the hair of Wyn, their very first (and continuing) customer
The Striped Pole Barbers Shop opened its doors for trading in Kibworth in March 2015. The dream was to create a traditional, yet modern and stylish barber shop in the centre of the community. The doors opened at 9am that morning to our first customer, with Dean, owner and highly skilled barber running the shop by himself. Business was good from the start and we have the amazing people of Kibworth and the surrounding villages to thank for this.
As the business grew, we knew that we needed to offer more to our clients. More staff were taken on to meet the customers’ demands; we added in the BarberCam, allowing clients to check the waiting area before coming in for a cut to avoid a long waiting time (www.thestripedpole.co.uk/barbercam).
In November 2017 we took out the ugly brick wall facing the roundabout to open up the shop and to bring back a more traditional shop front, as it had been in the 1800s. This was the starting point for a total shop refit over the summer of 2018 which has been received with the highest compliments from our clients. More recently we have introduced the online appointment system where you can book your favourite barber from our website www.thestripedpole.co.uk/services ).
It has been an exceptional journey and we have loved every minute of it.We now have four top quality barbers who we are lucky to work with and who we wouldn’t be without.
We are very proud to be reaching our four year anniversary and would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone who has helped us to get to this point, and to our lovely customers for supporting and for trusting in us. We look forward to many more fabulous years serving Kibworth and the surrounding villages.
