“Go here if you need a haircut! Mitch has been cutting and shaving for years, and he takes his customers’ satisfaction very seriously.

Not Your Average Barber Shop

We wanted to learn a little more about this incredible barber shop and its award-winning online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Mitchell Mechaley, the owner of Mitchell’s Barber Shop.

The start our conversation, we asked Mitchell what it is that sets Mitchell’s Barber Shop apart from the many other barber shops in South Dakota. Here’s his response:

“We are one of the only shops in the area that does straight razor shaves.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Mitchell’s Barber Shop and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Mitchell had to say:

“The biggest thing is that a barber shop is not a place to just come to spend money; we want to provide a service and make relationships. We are in-tune with the community and involved with a lot of organizations in the community. [We aim to] give [our cusotmers] the best service.”

Building Success With Service That Speaks for Itself

When asked about their secret to a strong online reputation at Mitchell’s Barber Shop, Mitchell said:

“I let the customers decide. I never ask for reviews. I have opportunities for them to do the reviews, but they are the ones who do them without me asking!”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Mitchell’s Barber Shop has spread the word about who they are and what they do through Facebook, local radio and newsprint advertising, and community involvement and haircut donations.

This growth strategy has gone so well for Mitchell’s Barber Shop that, after being in the same location for 10 years, they are expanding to a new location soon, and they’ll have four chairs instead of two.

It’s clear that Mitchell has a lot of knowledge when it comes to growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“It is all about customer service. Do what is best for the customer. Pay attention to their instructions. Give the customers what they want.”
