The Guys Place expands to Houghton

HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - The Guys Place has expanded into Houghton. The barbershop on Sharon Avenue offers one-on-one service targeted towards men. The Houghton branch has been open a month and business is good. Clients from Finlandia University and Michigan Tech are familiar with the brand from other locations.

"Well the whole philosophy is just kind of a new take on the old-fashioned barber shops. Really if you think about it there are not a whole lot of places to go for men really to get their hair cut or their beards trimmed, anything like that. We just wanted to and the franchise just wants to provide the ultimate service at a good, affordable cost," said Kurt Peterson, owner of the Guys Place in Houghton and Marquette.

There are 45 Guys Place locations nationwide. This is the second in the U.P.
