Local barber shop is one of oldest in Oklahoma – Published in the Oct. 24-30 edition of the Johnston County Sentinel

This week’s Member Spotlight is on Tish Barbershop, owned and operated by Tracy Leader! Located at 303 W. Main Street, this business may have changed owners over time, but is one of the oldest buildings in Tishomingo that has been the same type of business since 1907 – a barbershop. Leader has been operating there for almost six and a half years and offers great, fast cuts with no appointments and complimentary shampoos. She has been a licensed cosmetologist for 25 years and can cut men’s, women’s, and children’s hair at an affordable rate.

Tish Barbershop is open Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. but can be open during other hours to accommodate client’s needs. Leader supports Johnston County Reaching Out, among other local organizations, and offers free cuts to those going through cancer treatments.

Find Tish Barbershop on Facebook and message Tracy with questions about her services! Read next week for a spotlight on Texoma Medical Center.

On Tuesday, October 29th, I will be attending the Marshall County Job Fair on behalf of JCCC membership. Those member businesses who are hiring but do not have time to go themselves can send applications, information, and swag with me to the event to share with those in attendance. Please drop off these items by Monday, October 28th at 5 p.m. at our office.

I have a meeting with Chickasaw Country next week to start working on the details for the Tishomingo map that the JCCC and Chickasaw Information Center worked to get drawn up. Hopefully we’ll have something to print soon!

We’re nearing the end of the year which means we’ll be looking for those interested in serving on our board of directors. Members in good standing who are interested can reach out to anyone currently on the board. Membership renewal packets will go out the first week of January – I can’t believe it’s already time to mention that! Until next week…
