The Town of Lynnville needs an old time barber shop to be located here. At one time during the 1960s and early ‘70s there were two barber shops in Lynnville. The names of the shops were Lynnville Barber Shop and Bivens Barber Shop. The Lynnville Barber Shop at one time had two chairs. There is certainly enough business in Lynnville for a barber shop. If you know someone who needs to open a shop, have them come to Lynnville and take a look.
