There aren’t many places where you can go anymore where you can find tradition and nostalgia mixed with the energy and trends of this new era. But places like this do exist, places just like David’s Greenwood Barbershop on Post Road in Warwick. It is here, at this longstanding barber shop in the Greenwood section of the city, where you will find owner Dave Picozzi and his son Geno, the barbers who have given this enduring landmark its longevity, and its reputation.
David’s Greenwood Barbershop has been the destination for men’s hair cuts in Warwick for twenty-six unbroken years. That is a remarkable milestone by anyone’s standards ~ and marks only the beginning of this father-son partnership for years to come.
How has this family-run business survived when so many others have been swept away like a pile of newly-shorn hair? Just ask Dave and Geno. They know that it takes consistency, attention to detail, affordability and an environment where customers feel right at home. They know it takes “old-fashioned” values of honesty, respect and quality workmanship to have their kind of staying power.
Dave and Geno also know who their clients are and what they want; in fact, many of them have been loyal to the Picozzis for all their 26 years. One such customer is Roy Kelvey who has been getting his hair cut by Dave since 1989, many years before David’s Greenwood Barbershop became a reality! Watching Roy and Dave together is like watching two old friends whose shared pasts have given them a language all their own. Lots of laughter and endless sharing of stories happen with Roy Kelvey in the swivel chair!
Whether these buddies are talking about the hot topics of the day or about something as mundane as the weather, there is always something to keep the conversation going at this neighborhood barber shop. This is what it is like with Dave and all his customers. There is a kinship here that is hard to replicate ~ and a camaraderie that is rare in our fast-paced world.
The Picozzi’s owe a lot to their many clients. To show this appreciation they make sure that each customer is satisfied with their cut or trim every time he leaves the shop. The first priority of these talented barbers is, and always will be, 100% customer satisfaction.
David’s Greenwood Barbershop is located at 2879 Post Road. No appointment is ever needed. Hours are Tuesday through Friday 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, with Saturday hours from 7:30am to 2:00pm. For more information call 401-738-7790.
Dave and Geno cut the hair of many of our state’s most dedicated veterans who make up a large segment of their customer base. Though we offered thanks to our veterans on Veteran’s Day, the Picozzi’s express the sincerest of gratitude to them every single day.
