After 50 years of cutting hair in Oak Lawn / Mt. Greenwood, barber Tom Grochowski considers retiring
When Tom Grochowski became a barber, flattops and crewcuts were all the rage.
He survived the long hair of the late 1960s and 1970s, rode the gravy train of the economic boom during the '80s, now has a steady clientele and is ready to celebrate a milestone — on Sunday, the Alsip resident, 70, marks 50 years as a barber.
Grochowski won't cut hair because he's off on Sundays but will be back at it at 9 a.m. Tuesday, ready to cut the hair of regulars or any first-timers who venture into Mr. G's Ranch Barber Shop in the Ranch Manor shopping center at 111th Street and Pulaski Road in Oak Lawn.
