January 27, 2009 // Franchising.com // Portland, Ore., – Bishops Barbershop, cuts and colors for men and women, today announced it will be offering a special Valentine's Day Package for men featuring a hot towel shave, haircut and shave products that normally costs $65 for just $40.
"At Bishops, you can save money without sacrificing style," said Leo Rivera, founder, president and CEO of Bishops. "We offer full-service salon quality at affordable prices every day, but there are times when guys want to look really good without breaking their bank account, and Valentine's Day is definitely one of those occasions. If you've never been in a Bishops before, this is a great time to come in and try us out, and if you're a regular, you have the chance to enjoy a hot towel shave and check out some new products."
Bishop's Valentine's Day Package will be offered Feb. 1 through Feb. 14 at all six locations throughout Portland. No coupon or gift card is required.
"We enjoy offering special promotions," Rivera said. "We know that once customers try us, they will become regulars, because Bishops is more than a place to get a haircut; it's a lifestyle. We are a 21st century version of the old barbershops you see in movies. People come in to hang out, talk, have a good time and get high-end salon quality and service without the pretentiousness or expensive prices."
Rivera started Bishops to fill the niche between national haircut chains, full-service salons and traditional barbershops for Generations X, Y and Z. Bishops delivers full-service cut, color and styling options at affordable prices in a casual, fun environment that features edgy artwork and music, trend-setting stylists, a convenient walk-in only policy, and a free bottle of cold Miller High Life for customers 21 and older. He began offering Bishops franchise opportunities across North America in September of 2008.
"No matter what the economy, people are continuing to invest in their appearance, which is why hair care is a $55 billion, recession-resistant industry," Rivera said. "Bishops is bringing something new to a traditional service, so our concept is very appealing to those looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, but still accessible."
Leo Rivera opened his first Bishops Barbershop in Portland, Oregon in 2001 as an alternative to national haircut chains, traditional barbershops and high-end salons, and today there are six locations throughout the city. A new kind of neighborhood barbershop for Generations X, Y and Z, Bishops is known for its convenient, walk-in only policy, trend-setting hair stylists, edgy music, unrestricted fashion and support of local artists. Bishops delivers full-service salon cuts and colors for men and women at affordable prices in a fun, casual atmosphere. Franchise opportunities are available now.
