A massive structure fire tore through the Amart building and Sim's barbershop on North St. back in October of 2019. As a result, most of the barbers were relocated to the Dalton Ave location.

As of about two weeks ago, however, The City of Pittsfield had to shut down the business due to owed property tax.

I understand that the closure has created a difficult circumstance for the barbers who worked at Sim's. Despite the city's best efforts, we were unable to come to terms with the owner for the payment of unpaid real estate taxes going back to 2007. -Mayor Linda Tyer

Sim's operated a shop on Main St. in Great Barrington that had closed some years ago.

Below is a screenshot of where the barbers are currently cutting hair or by appointment.
