There is plenty old at American Classic Barbershop.
A couple of things that aren’t old at the business, located at 4196 River Road N: the age of the business itself (opened March 2011) and the fundraiser taking place Saturday, Aug. 3.
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday shop owner Dave Box and co-worker Bob Beachboard will be providing buzz cuts on a donation basis. All proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps soldiers hurt in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“It kind of snowballed,” said Box, a former deputy sheriff and state investigator. “We have a lot of veterans who come in here, some disabled in the Middle East. Just in talking to those guys and listening to their stories, I found out about Wounded Warrior. It’s a great charity.”
