Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

The Man Cave
Sporting faux torches and animal skins on its walls, The Man Cave is committed to taking its title seriously. But its figurative meaning—a place where men can escape to let go of their stress—also applies. Here, barbers buzz or trim hair into neatened styles, often augmenting the service with a hot lather and towel shave. The cave is also a spa, with facials, back scrubs, and scalp massages that soothe the skin. As for mani-pedis, they don't come with polish, but they do include a complimentary jewelry cleaning and shoe shine.
