I had my haircut last Saturday and as always I went to see Doug, a good old fashioned and slightly eccentric barber on Melbourne Rd in Seddon. After my cut and collecting the three lolly bags and balloons he always sends home for the young kids I pulled out the $15 it normally costs.
“No, it’s $10 now.” he says.
I asked him why he lowered his prices and his response tells you what a great guy he is.
“I think things are getting tough out there.”
