It was March 14, and Mersadies Reber, owner of Fellas Chop Shop in Spanish Fork was getting ready to celebrate two years in business by offering $2 Classic Straight Razor Shaves.

Then, the unthinkable happened, and the Centers for Disease Control and Health Department set guidelines for social distancing.

The day that was set aside for celebrating the business and appreciating customers, the popular barber shop had a total of five customers walk in their doors.

“It was a really hard day,” Reber said. “Since all this happened, we have been hit really hard, and we understand, but it still hurts us. Most of my barbers are the main breadwinners for their families. We don’t have sick leave and paid time off. If we don’t work, we don’t make money.”

Reber talked about how much she loves the community support they have received, noting that the South Valley Chamber of Commerce contacted her to check in, and that residents have asked how they can help.

She knows that as a business they will survive, but is concerned about those who work for her, and how they will weather this storm. (Brown is a Serve Daily contributor.)
