Barber helps Richmond stay fresh

on February 3, 2011

Thirty-three-year-old Eric White owns the Your Search Is Over Barbershop on San Pablo and Barrett Avenues in Richmond. A first-time business owner, White opened it in 2009, just two doors down from the shop where he used to work. Despite a down economy, there are enough people getting their hair done in Richmond to keep them both in business. A barbershop is a recession-proof business, says White.
