New ownership!

April 19, 2014

Well, April is here already – half over in fact. There have been a lot of changes over the last month or so!


As a lot of you will already know, Paul has sold the shop to Josh Monaghan. Paul is sticking to the Barber industry but heading into an exciting new venture. Meanwhile Josh has become the proud new owner of Barbers and Merchants.

Another new edition


With Paul gone Josh needed a new barber to join the team here. Perfect timing for an old mate of Paul’s to show up ready for work. Karl has been with us for a few weeks now and is enjoying it a lot. He seems to know every second person that walks into the shop, having been in the industry for many years and worked in a number of barbershops around Auckland.


I’m also fairly new here! My name is Emma and I have replaced Teresa, who is now a co-owner of her boyfriends new butcher shop out west. I am enjoying learning the art of the traditional wet shave and we will be doing a whole lot more of them in a few weeks time.


It is also our birthday month in April and this year Barbers and Merchants turns 3 years old. In celebration we are running a Jellybean jar contest. Pop in and see us before the end of April and guess how many jellybeans are in the jar. The closest guess wins their choice of either a 150g jar of d:fi hair product or a shave mug and brush!


If you haven’t “liked” us already then come and “like” our facebook page to keep up to date with the shop.

Have a fantastic Easter!
