Loyalty to Jack’s Barber Shop in Weaver transcends generations.

It began in 1962, when Jack Green took over the small barber shop in the bottom of a two-story building in the heart of town. Jack Green retired years ago, but today two of his adult children, John Green and Ann-Marie Green, run the place with skill and common sense passed down from their father.

“We’ve been blessed with generations of our dad’s customers,” John Green said.

Josh Doggrell, a long-time customer, can attest to that. He began coming to the shop with his dad decades ago. Now he brings his own son, Tyler, age 6.

Doggrell’s dad doesn’t have much hair to cut these days, but he’s still loyal to Jack’s, Doggrell said. “My dad goes here, too, and he really doesn’t need a haircut,” he said. “I’ll get to that point, too.”
