Supercuts, which has been on Austin Street for more than two decades, closes

Aug. 28, 2017 Staff Report

Supercuts, which operates a chain of more than 2,000 salons nationwide, closed its Austin Street location Saturday.

Susanne Biordi, the manager of the 72-16 Austin Street salon, said that the company notified employees two weeks ago that it was not renewing its lease and was closing down.

Biordi, who had been at the Austin Street salon for about 12 years, said that Supercuts was not doing as well as it once was. She said that there has been an influx of new salons to the neighborhood. Meanwhile the costs of operating the salon were rising.

Biordi said she has found work at Shay’s Place at 72-64 Austin Street. She said the other employees either lost their jobs or went to other Supercut salons.
