(LaPorte, IN) - At least one barbershop in LaPorte is seeing a record turnout since haircutters in the state were allowed to reopen yesterday. Carter’s Barber’s Shop on Jefferson Ave. across from
City Hall served 83 people yesterday and there was a steady stream of customers today. Julie Wisser has owned her business for 18 years. She says she’s never had this many customers.
Wisser says several came Michigan because of barbershops in that state are still closed.
Chris Kendall showed up for a haircut this morning and said he feels pretty safe because of the necessary precautions like masks being taken. Customers at Carter’s Barber Shop have to take a number then wait outside until there’s adequate room for them to come inside. Wilson’s Barbershop on Lincolnway is taking customers by appointment only and reports being booked through Saturday.
