There is only one business in Dublin, Ohio, that has been proudly serving its customers for over 80 years: Dublin Barber Shoppe.
Opened in 1938 by Mose Meyers, the Dublin Barber Shoppe offered men traditional haircuts in a traditional barber shop setting. That legacy continues to this day.
The Tradition Continues
In 1967, Jack Price became a partner in the Dublin Barber Shoppe and eventually the full owner. Jack remembers the sleepy town of Dublin, with only 350 residents, very quiet streets and the “old timers” who came in for a cut and, just as importantly, friendly conversation.
While Jack’s son, Craig, admired his father’s business he had other aspirations. He went to college and embarked on a corporate career path. But then something changed. In 1996, Craig realized that joining his father at the shop would give him the opportunity to spend every day with his dad, experience business ownership and get engrained in a community he loved. The actual precision of his new profession matched perfectly with his pursuit of perfection – never a hair out of place!
Today, Craig is the owner of Dublin Barber Shoppe, and he and his staff of barbers continue the tradition of giving exceptional service in a friendly atmosphere where getting to know each customer is a priority. While Dublin is now a city with over 40,000 residents and continues to grow, the Dublin Barber Shoppe is where dads still bring their sons for that first haircut, “old timers” still talk about things that happened back-in-the-day, and men of all ages come to get a great haircut.
Jack Price passed away in November 2020, and is missed by his loving family and many friends. Read more about Jack’s life here.
