Miguel Moda Barber Shop & Beauty Salon opened in July in Ashley Plaza, 401-D East Main St., Middletown.

Moda operated a barber shop for 17 years in Wilmington and decided to open his new shop after moving to Middletown.

“We really like Middletown. This is a very good place to raise a family and the school district is very good,” he said.

The barber shop and salon has four employees, offering haircuts and styling for men, women and children.

“We have a very experienced staff, and we have men and women on our staff,” said Moda.

The shop also features a kids room with a special car chair, coloring books, toys and a TV showing children’s programs.

Hours are Monday from 12-9 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For appointments, call 376-3000. Walk-ins are welcome, too.
