The very first Barbershop by Timpson opened today, Thursday 12th April, right outside our Timpson House base in Wythenshawe, Manchester. Snipping the ribbon on our new ‘cutting edge’ concept store was Bede Timpson, eldest son of Timpson Group CEO, James Timpson, who was amongst the first to climb into the barber’s chair for a trim. Bede was joined by the Timpson Group’s Business Development Manager, Liz Jardine, and our fantastic team of skilled barbers.
The Barbershop team of Stevie, James, Gary, Byron and barber’s apprentice, Ellis, are all looking forward to trailblazing this exciting new venture for the Group.
Barbershop by Timpson Area Manager, Stevie Badrock, said: “It’s been an incredible journey launching this debut service for the Timpson Group. With the explosive growth in men’s grooming, we know there is a market there and we plan to launch more Barbershop by Timpson concept stores in the months ahead. Meanwhile, I’m delighted to report we’ve had a steady stream of customers since we threw open the doors of our cool new Barbershop.”
