This week’s “Business Spotlight” is Cruisin’ Style Barber Parlor, which is located at 135 W Gay Street. We sat down with the owner, Craig Felice, to get the inside scoop.
1. Tell me about your business and what makes it unique.
Cruisin’ Style is a garage-themed, multicultural barber shop with toolboxes and air hoses hanging from the ceiling. We originally started with 4 chairs at our old shop located next to Jitters Sports Bar, and expanded to 8 chairs at our current location about 11 years ago.
We are a guy’s haven with conversations ranging from boxing, MMA, football, baseball, music, and the local ongoings of West Chester (don’t worry moms, we’ll keep it clean). Our vibe is “old school meets new school” with pop art, vintage signs, and sports memorabilia to keep your eyes busy every time you come in. As a family barber shop, we serve everyone ages 1 to 99 years old!
2. What services or products do you offer?
Haircuts and beard trims with a razor finish.
3. How long have you been in business?
We were established on May 7th, 2001, so almost 22 years.
4. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?
We love being part of the buzz of town, there is never a dull moment here. We have great restaurants and bars as well as convenient and unique retail spots. Lots of great people live here in the Borough!
5. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your business?
We want our clients to feel comfortable in our setting here at Cruisin’ Style. Going back to my childhood, I always loved hanging out in my dad’s garage and found that feeling of informality just so cool. Don’t worry moms and other visitors, you will feel comfortable as well with a large waiting area to relax while your friend, son, boyfriend, or hubby gets their cut. While we strive to handle all types of haircuts, we are not a salon (so don’t expect a cut and color, LOL!)
6. Is there anything else you would like to share about your business?
We are closed on all major holidays and Sundays so our employees can be with their families.
