Offers traditional barbershop services in an upscale environment at a reasonable price.
V’s Barbershop®, the leading authentic and upscale barbershop experience, is proud to announce the opening of its newest location in North Carolina at 301 Colonades Way, within the Waverly Place Shopping Center. The Cary location is the second V’s Barbershop to open in the North Carolina market, and the 22nd location to open nationwide. The barbershop has six authentic and beautifully restored antique Koken barber chairs from the 1950’s, shoeshine services, and amenities such as flat screen televisions, quality grooming products and iconic artwork. V’s Barbershop will be celebrating their Grand Opening festivities all day on Saturday, December 6th with fun give-a-ways, a barbershop quartet and an evening happy hour with refreshments from 6pm – 8pm.
Entrepreneur Ben Lester was initially interested in leaving the corporate world behind and going into business for himself. In an effort to honor his two Grandfathers, Walter & William, he started looking into the idea of building a barbershop. After much research, he came across V’s Barbershop, and was intrigued enough to consider a franchise opportunity. Ben was inspired to bring V’s to Cary after a visit to the original V’s Barbershop location in Phoenix, AZ, and working with founder Jim Valenzuela and his team. “The V’s experience is much more than a great haircut, old fashioned straight-edge shave or shoeshine. I am excited to honor my grandfathers and to bring an authentic and upscale barbershop experience into the Cary community. We are here to provide the very best in barbershop services for many years to come.”
“This is a significant opening for us at V’s Barbershop,” said Jim Valenzuela, V’s Barbershop Founder and CEO. “Not only are we opening the second V’s Barbershop in North Carolina, expanding the market from Winston Salem, but we are engraining ourselves into a community that appreciates quality grooming services in a unique and authentic environment. Ben brought the concept to Cary out of homage to his Grandfathers. That’s the heart of V’s, and that is not only an honor to our brand, but it also makes me very proud as our founder. I am excited that V’s has found roots in Cary. We plan on being here for a long time and becoming an integral part of the community.”
