COLONIE, N.Y. (June 13, 2013) -- Sport Clips Haircuts, a place that makes it good to be a guy, opened on June 14 at 1770 Central Ave. in Colonie. This is the first location in the city, adding to the more than 1,000 Sport Clips across the country. An official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony took place on Monday, June 24, 2013 at 4:00 p.m.

“What’s better than being in a relaxing environment, where sports are on TV everywhere you look, with well-trained stylists and no need for an appointment when it’s time for a haircut?” said Todd, who owns the new Sport Clips with his business partner, Paul Hogan. “Those are just a few reasons why we know Sport Clips will be a hit for the guys here.”

Sport Clips Offers Clients:

Fox, a native of Colonie, owns a parking management company in Albany, Maiden Lane Parking, in addition to his Sport Clips business. He plans to open at least five additional locations in the region, but in the meantime, looks forward to supporting Wildwood School, The Valley Cats, and other community organizations through his new business.

The new store will offer free MVP upgrades, including a massaging shampoo, hot steamed towel treatment, and neck and shoulder massage, to new clients who purchase a regular haircut service.

Sport Clips in Colonie will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit
