KORAL KINSLEY SHANK OWNER

"Our customers are Family. I love doing clients that used to come to my Mom and those clients who have been coming to me over the last 20 years. My biggest thrill however, is still getting a new client, and welcoming them to the Shear Shop Family
"Owning a small business is not easy. However, I never think of all of the work that is involved. I think of all of my clients and my staff. My hope is that is some way, I have, and will continue to have made a difference in someone's life"
