New London barber calls it a career some four decades after it all began for him
NEW LONDON -- A steady stream of customers and good-natured bantering was flowing at Bob Nelson's barbershop Friday in New London.
It's always busy at the one-chair shop, but longtime customers wanted to make sure they got their $10 haircuts before Nelson closed his doors at 1 p.m. Saturday.
After 43 years in the business, including 37 in his hometown, Nelson has retired.
A new barber, Brad Olson, will take over the clippers when the shop opens Tuesday.
