Sport Clips Haircuts, a nationally franchised hair salon that markets itself as a place where men can get groomed and pampered in an environment geared toward them, has opened a store in Suffolk.

The Suffolk store, located at 1217 N. Main St., adds to the more than 1,000 Sport Clips across the country, company officials stated in a press release.

Kimmerick Vick of Chesapeake, owner of the new business, said in the press release that he plans to open additional locations in the area during the next year. The company’s focus on making men feel comfortable should make it popular, he stated.
