Sole Patch opened their second location at 2872 West 47th Avenue, K.C., KS in the Northwood Shopping Center.  The location is just east of Kansas City Joe’s BBQ and Taco Republic.  Mario Smith, one of the most successful cutters at the Sole Patch Corinth location in Prairie Village, was promoted to managing partner of the new Northwood location.



The Northwood location was designed with the ever-present music theme of Sole Patch in mind.  Aluminum concert truss structures were custom designed to create 10 cutting stations.



All services remain the same, as does the Sole Patch dedication to excellence.

The year got started off with the annual contribution of time and services to The American Cancer Society’s “Shave to Save” event.




Sole Patch staff then got jiggy with it and let their freak flags fly.




The year was wrapped up by shutting the shop down and driving staff to join a million other people as they celebrated the Royals 2015 World Series Championship parade.

Sole Patch re-branded it’self in name only this month by dropping the identifier of “Barbershop” and instead going with “Men’s Shop”.

 “We feel more confident that the name change better aligns us with what we are about which is a lifestyle company.  It also keeps us from getting overlooked as a modern service provider… you know, unfortunately, the stereotypical idea of a barbershop can kind of be old fashioned.” said Ron Mayer, owner of Sole Patch.
