Remember the good old barbershop?

A shave and a haircut may cost more than “two bits” these days, but the recently opened Heritage Barbershop is keeping it old-school.

“The barbershop ... should be a place where anyone can come for a good conversation and interaction with their neighbors,” said Brian Porteous, owner and master barber.

The shop, located at 2137-B E. Burnside Road in Gresham, offers men and boys’ hairstyles, hot towel straight razor shaves, and shampooing and grooming advice.

Local company expands cleaning services

All-Clean Window Service recently launched a sister company to help homeowners rid their roofs and decking of mold, moss and algae common in the damp Pacific Northwest climate.

The 35-year-old Gresham business is the first in the Northwest to offer the SoftWash System of pressure washing for roofs, wood, concrete and other surfaces where mildew, mold and algae grow. The process uses a 100 percent biodegradable solution, applied at an extremely low pressure, to eliminate the infestation.

Traditional high-power pressure washing can not only damage wood or roof material, but it does not effectively destroy the roots of mold or moss.

For more information, call All-Clean SoftWash at 503-887-6404.

Troubled Rockwood restaurant closes

East County’s Best Burger and BBQ in the Rockwood neighborhood quietly locked its doors to the general public Saturday, Sept. 14, after only six months of new ownership.

The sudden decision to close the restaurant wasn’t due to “one big gaping wound,” said co-owner Adam Reid, but more like “ a thousand little cuts,” which included obstacles like the restaurant’s tarnished reputation and the owners’ lack of experience in the food service industry.

“We did everything we could because we didn’t want to see another business close in Rockwood,” Reid said. “We kept trying and trying to make it work, but no matter what we did, we just couldn’t make a go of it.”

Reid, who also owns Origins Coffee Shop in Gresham Town Fair, and community activist Shannon Chisom purchased the burger joint from John Cartisser in April.
