The Virginian-Pilot has done a feature on the Wards Corner barber shop, 15 Barbers, titled “Where were the good old days? They were here at Wards Corner Barber Shop“.
Barber Reggie Minnix worked at the shop for 20 years and owned it for the last 10. Minnix died last summer and left the shop to his children. His son, Dean Minnix, a land surveyor, and daughter, Stephanie Thornton, hope to sell the business to an entrepreneurial barber, like their father.
“Our biggest desire is that it remains a barber shop,” Minnix said. “We want it to keep the nostalgia it currently has.”
Minnix said he has a prospective buyer and is hopeful the business will remain.
