“Every time that road closed sign is up, it hurts our business.”
Colin Pack, Owner, Vine Street Barbershop
MOUNT VERNON — When Colin Pack moved his Vine Street Barbershop across the alley from 10 to 12 W. Vine St. earlier this year, one of the reasons was to avoid the street closings that have made downtown Mount Vernon a little harder to navigate and difficult for businesses to attract customers.
Consistent road closings can take its toll on a business as the flow of customers is obstructed along with the traffic.
“Any business that has a road closed for seven months shouldn’t make it,” Pack said.
