Bob’s Barber Shop to move

After 33 years in the same location, Bob’s Barber Shop has closed at 732 W. Hillside Ave. and will be re-opening on May 2 at 340 W. Willis St., on the corner of Willis and McCormick streets, according to owner Lily Gannon, who bought the shop from Bob Reichmuth last year after working there since 1984.

She’s moving the shop because she couldn’t reach an agreement on terms of a new lease with the property owner, she said.

“It’s very sad that I have to leave this location,” Gannon said. “It breaks my heart.”

She said well-known people have been in her chair: “I cut Sam Steiger’s hair a couple of times, I’ve known Ken Bennett since his older children were toddlers.”

Reichmuth is still cutting hair with Gannon, and will also make the move, she said, although he’s thinking about retiring soon.

Chino Valley Shopko Hometown shutting down

After just under two years in business the Chino Valley Shopko Hometown store, 1950 N. Highway 89, is closing its doors near the end of June.

That’s according to the store’s manager, Melissa Yoshi, who cited “soft sales” as the reason for the closure, before referring further questions to the corporate headquarters, which did not respond by press time.

Shopko Hometown, a Green Bay, Wisconsin-based retail chain, expanded into Arizona in 2016, and the Chino Valley location was second to open in the state after one in Springerville, which remains open.

Shopko Hometown is a smaller version of the larger Shopko retail stores.

Mountain Valley Regional Rehab in top 10% for 11th year

Mountain Valley was among 870 inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationwide ranked by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a nonprofit corporation that was developed with support from the U.S. Department of Education.
