With the rapidly growing men's grooming industry, it is clear that more and more upscale concept barbershops will sprout around the metro. This also seems like a good opportunity for pioneers to extend their reach through putting up new branches. Which is exactly what the people behind The Village Barber and Supply Shop have in mind, taking advantage of this opportunity to let more men experience their service. They recently opened their second shop at The Grove by Rockwell in Pasig City. A lot more spacious than their first branch at BGC, which makes room for a Table Tennis table, a bar, print display rack and bigger floorspace for the barbers area. They envision the space to be a place of solace for men, not only for personal grooming, but also for leisure and relaxation. Having this much space also inspires them to create events and gatherings to keep their community stronger, to offer more for the modern men of the country.
