In honor of their incredible dedication during some of the City’s most difficult times, Teddy Cars, The Barber Factory and thisistheBronX have set up a Family Day for the City’s First Responders, including NYPD, FDNY, EMS, and the Red Cross on Tuesday, April 2 from 10:00am – 6:00pm.
On that day, at The Barber Factory, located at 4131 Laconia Avenue in the Bronx (across the street from the 47th Pct.), members of those agencies and their immediate family members will get $5.00 haircuts and significant discounts towards the purchase of cars, as well as a range of auto service benefits.
The festivities will also include discounted haircuts for the general public, and maybe most important, Hero Awards Presented by Teddy Cars to recognize and honor each distinguished public service organization for their dedication to the Bronx and City.
“There are not enough accolades for the men and women who respond at a moment’s notice on our behalf during some of our most challenging moments, whether fires, difficult crime scenes, natural disasters, or emergencies that come up in the Bronx on a daily basis,” said Teddy Cars General Manager Julio Batista. “We just can’t do enough for them and partnering with The Barber Factory and thisistheBronX sets just the right tone for showing our appreciation.”
Nestor Lebron, who has built the beloved barber shop on extraordinary community service, agrees. “Think about it,” he said. “When things are toughest, it’s like the Ghostbusters slogan, ‘who you gonna call?’ And they are always right there for us. This is the least we can do in return.”
On Tuesday April 2, 2019 The Barber Factory, located at 4131 Laconia Avenue will open at 10:00am and Family Day for First Reponders will take place until 6:00pm.
First Responders, their families, and EVERYONE is invited to attend.
