Barber shop clarification

We want to clear things up – at long time and well-known Birmingham Barbers, 725 S. Adams, Suite 110, Birmingham, former owner Jim Farhat, who opened the popular barbershop in 1966, died quite a while ago. No new news to longtime customers, new owner Anna Canisz said. She just wanted it cleared up that while she worked for years with Jim, she actually bought the shop in January from Jim’s son, Larry Farhat – who is alive and well. Larry retired from the business, prompting Canisz to purchase the local institution. With the pandemic waning, she’s fixed the place up, even adding putt-putt for kids – and kids at heart.
