There are a lot of sounds one expects to hear at a corner barber shop ~ the buzzing sound of the shears, the snipping sound of the scissors, the squeaky sound of the swivel chair as it spins in place and the familiar sound of a door opening and closing.
But at David’s Greenwood Barber Shop in Warwick, these sounds are trumped by the sounds of laughter, friendly bantering and discussions on the state of affairs of our country. This is the closest thing we have in today’s fast-paced world to the town square, where old friends and multiple generations of fathers and sons alike come to get their hair cut, and to “solve the problems” of our day.
David’s Greenwood Barber Shop has stood at this site for nearly thirty years – that is THREE consecutive decades as of October of 2023!

Some are part of three generations – father, son and grandson! Those who come for the first time come back, time and time again. Dave and his son Geno are mainstays on the Warwick landscape. Come in and check out this dynamic duo.
