Not ready to RETIRE

this is a small Barbershop that has been here for 17 years. But due to not only the covid-19 pandemic but also Construction of Mountain View Corridor has cut business 75%. Steve Lucero is my dad and the owner of Lucero's Barbershop. Turning 72 years old November 30TH, this is his life and its what keeps him going. MY brother Michael Lucero and myself (Stephanie Lucero) want help from the community to recognize and acknowledge that we want him to stay Open. Before the pandemic and construction business was steady. But at only $10.00 per hair cut and business being cut 75% he is struggling! Sure he could be like all the other bigger places that keep raising the prices, but he wouldn't stand out if he was like the rest. He doesn't open shop every morning Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays to get rich, he goes to work to pay bills, to survive. Because its what he loves to do. He isn't ready to close his door for good. When a city decides to build a highway or road do they even care how it affects the people who live and work close to the construction?
When you look for a job, your appearance is a huge part of a job interview, is it not? You leave the barber feeling a bit more confident after a fresh hair cut! You feel better about what you see in the mirror. My brother and I believe the change in this world will come from more people being willing to help, if all you can help with is $ .05 then its greatly appreciated it will all go to my father to make sure utilities and rent and supplies for Lucero's Barbershop are paid. And if the only help you can offer is getting this post out there so more people know of him that too is greatly appreciated! I love seeing small mom and pop business, because big company's have big turn over rates. Dont you want to go where everyone knows your name. All I'm asking is for us to stand up for the things that remind us where we came from. Help keep Lucero's Barbershop open! Thank you for your time. I hope we can all remember what made America great! Its you, its me, its US!
