    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Oct. 7, 2015 –Pioneer Gentlemen’s Barber, a new upscale, classic barbershop offering a distinctive line of grooming services and products, is celebrating its opening in the Gulch with an open house, long weekend of specials and the kick-off of a partnership with Gilda’s Club Nashville, a support community for men, women and children with any type of cancer along with their family and friends.

    The celebration begins Thursday, Oct. 15 with free haircuts from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. with a minimum $20 donation to Gilda’s Club. The offer is first come, first served. An open house will follow from 5 – 8 p.m. with a barbershop quartet, ribbon cutting, drawings, and food and beverages provided by local vendors.

    “The response to our soft opening a few weeks ago has exceeded my expectations. I’m excited for our official grand opening weekend to really showcase the space, talent and services we offer,” said owner Tom Gaudreau, who co-owns the barbershop with his wife Renee. “We’ve recruited some of the best barbers and stylists in Nashville, and will continue adding both talent and services as we grow.”

    Throughout the weekend, first-time customers will receive a free service with their first regularly priced haircut and a 10 percent discount on featured product lines. As always, customers receive a token for a complimentary draft beer from neighboring partner, The Pub. A portion of the proceeds from all sales during the grand opening weekend will be donated to Gilda’s Club.

    “Gilda’s Club is so happy to be partnering with Pioneer for their grand opening,” said Sandy Towers, CEO and founder, Gilda’s Club Nashville. “We are always eager to be a part of something that helps bring more awareness to our free services – especially the fact the we have programming for men and young adults that are impacted by cancer.”

    The cause is very personal to the owners, who have lost loved ones to this terrible disease. “In addition to building a great business in Nashville, we want to give back and support causes that are meaningful,” said Gaudreau. “I lost my dad to lung cancer three years ago and value the programs and services Gilda’s Club offers to support those affected.”
