One of the (many) reasons people hate corporations is that they try to be all things to all people. Oftentimes they try to appeal to various ethnic and religious groups at the same time. And while that may or may not lead to an image of inclusivity, it certainly doesn’t lead to a particularly strong loyalty from any one demographic.
And that’s what makes Kike Barbershop such a compelling alternative to some Borg-like franchise. Sure, a barbershop in a diverse neighborhood could attempt to service any number of the ethnic communities, many with even a stronger presence than the Jews, and yet, these guys prefer to zero in intensely on the Jews.
But this kind of independent merchant loyalty requires reciprocation or it’s just not sustainable.
Kike Barbershop is located at 91-19 37th Avenue, Jackson Heights, Queens, NY. Patronize them, and in order to avoid corroborating any hurtful Jewish stereotypes, please make sure to tip generously.
