NEW CASTLE —
Frankie Caffro’s Barber Shop is operating in downtown New Castle.
The shop — named for the owner and operator — is at 39 S. Jefferson St.
In addition to hair cuts for adults, Caffro’s shop also provides hair cuts for children.
Beard trims also are available at the shop.
Caffro said he decided to open his business in New Castle because, after owning and operating a full-service salon in Phoenix, Ariz., for four years, “I wanted to return to my hometown.”
He explained he chose to open a barber shop “because I saw a need for this service.”
Caffro added he located his shop in New Castle because he had “seen and likes the direction the city is moving in.”
More information is available by contacting Caffro at (724) 856-9708.
