Clintonville has lost a High Street business.

Mike’s Barbershop, which was located at 3518 N. High St., has closed its doors.

The spot, known for its marquee sign and friendly service, appeared to experience a difficulties in recent years leading up to the closure.


According to a series of Facebook posts from owner Mike Holman’s daughter, Holman suffered from a handful of health-related issues since at least 2020 that led to a string of temporary closures.

These included a bypass surgery in May of 2020 and a hospitalization in November of 2021.

And while Mike’s is gone, it appears the Clintonville spot will be home to another new business in the near future. According to multiple sources, a new owner will be launching a barbershop in the same space, although its name and when they plan to open is currently unclear.
