Plaza Barbers in Andover to move, expand

WICHITA — Another business is moving to Andover Village at 321 S. Andover Road.

Last month, Have You Heard? reported that Computers Plus would relocate there.

Now, Dave Tingley is moving his Plaza Barbers there.

He’s been in about 800 square feet at 616 N. Andover Road for seven years.

Joining Tingley will be his father, Virgil, who today closed his Virgil’s Barber Shop, which he had for 17 years.

“He reached a point in his life where he kind of wants to do it part time,” Tingley says of his father.

“It’s something we’ve talked about for a couple of years,” he says. “The timing seems right.”

They’ll both continue to offer traditional barber services.

“We still want to keep it comfortable for our older generation,” Tingley says.

He’s also adding salon services such as manicures, waxing and possibly massage.
