The Berkshire Eagle reports Ron and Rob Ferris thought they might cut hair for the rest of their lives.

The brothers, third generation barbers, worked together for decades in the family business. In the 1970's, Ronald, Robert and their older brother George took over the shop that their grandfather had started, and they remained a constant presence in North Adams, even as hairstyles evolved and the city changed.

Then the pandemic struck.

Business slowed to a trickle. George, their oldest brother, died in a car accident in the fall. And, just after Christmas, Ron, 78, and Rob, 66, both landed in the hospital with COVID-19.
Now, the city's beloved barbers are packing up shop, storing decades worth of memories and preparing for the next chapter: Retirement.
Good luck guys
