Classic barber to be bumped from Seventh Avenue for development


Solomon Gustavo/Review Clay Rivera, owner of Clay’s Barber Shop on Seventh Avenue, will have to move to make way for a new North St. Paul development. He’s looking for a new space on main street and a partner to build it with him and work at the shop.

Clay’s Barber Shop on Seventh Avenue is one room with two chairs, a little waiting area and a big window. People driving by see the shop, sense the simple charm of a classic barber and cant help but take a look inside.
