Pace’s Hair Design on Bell Boulevard will close at the end of the month.

The last locks will soon fall at a popular barber shop after the three decade-long staple on Bell Boulevard shutters at the end of the month.

Pace’s Hair Design, located at 40-02 Bell Boulevard, will permanently close its doors on October 27, according to Donato Cataldo, owner of the family business and the building, who cited financial reasons as the shop’s downfall.

“I feel bad for my customers and my employees who have been here for over 20 years,” said Cataldo, 34. “It was a family decision to rent it to someone else. I’m sad, of course. It’s been a family business for over 35 years in the same spot. It was my dad’s for many years.”

Cataldo said he took over the store — the only one the family owns — after his father passed away 10 years ago.

“I tried to revive it, tried to get it to a different level,” he said. “It just didn’t work out.”

Yogurtland, a franchise popular on the West Coast, will be taking Pace’s place in a few months. It will be the chain’s first store in the state.

“I want to thank everybody who has been coming here for a long time,” Cataldo said. “We’re just moving on.”
