After 65 years in business, O’Brien’s Tonsorial Parlor in Denver closes
DENVER -- The greetings are the same. The customers are the same as well. But the times are different now. It may be cliché to say nothing stays the same, but at O’Brien's Tonsorial Parlor on East 8th Avenue in Denver, it pretty much did stay the same for 65 years. “There's no one that expects to stay on one job in the same place for 65 years. That just doesn't happen very often,” laughed Dick Alderson. He has had the pleasure of knowing many heads at O’Brien's. He owns the place. He started working there when he was 18 years old.
