Barber shop to open second location
The Mailroom Barber Co. will soon open its second location in Florence.
Founded and owned by Robert Watkins, the new location will be at 2519-B West Palmetto St., next to Naturally Outdoors, Phil's Bicycle World and Bean Bar Coffee Shop. It is expected to open by mid-March. It will begin taking reservations as early as Feb. 1.
“We’ve outgrown our downtown location trying to keep up with demand so we decided it was time for a second location here in town,” said Watkins. “Florence has a serious need for good haircuts and The Mailroom is answering the call.”
Watkins said the new shop will have eight chairs to satisfy those who have had to book their appointments months in advance.
Watkins opened the first Mailroom barbershop in 2014 at 116 S. Irby St. in downtown Florence. He later added a second Mailroom location in Taylors at 230 Mill St.
“We’ve helped thousands of people in Florence take control of their hair and beards and we’re excited to help even more people at our second location,” said Watkins. “We look forward to continuing to make Florence stylish and sharp - one head at a time.”
The Mailroom Barber Co. will soon be recruiting new barbers and stylists to meet customer demand. For information, visit www.themailroombarberco.com/pages/ careers.
