Martin’s Barbershop no more

George Benavides checks a message on his cellular phone Monday as he stands at the spot where his father-in-law, Martin C. Sanchez Jr., had operated a barbershop since 1962. The little shop on North Madison Street had three chairs, and the entire building was moved this week to property that Benavidez has on Deaf Smith Road east of the city. Benavidez said he plans to restore the little shop to the condition it was in when Sanchez finally retired when he was in his 90s.
