This Entrepreneur Always Looks for 'Good Bones' When Searching for Retail Space

Follow us on a tour of Blind Barber's new spot in Highland Park, Los Angeles.
By Entrepreneur Partner Studio Staff

Having opened up six locations across New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, Jeff Laub knows a thing or two about working with an agent and scouting out the best retail space for his company Blind Barber, a hipster barber shop for dudes, fused with a cafe/lounge.

Most importantly, Laub says the space needs "good bones." That includes "unique fixtures or elements of the space that we're taking over that can be utilized and help tell a story."

At his newest store in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, two original details that helped seal the deal were the exposed brick walls and 100-year-old oak floors. "Finding this was a pure gem," Laub says.

For an inside look at the newest Blind Barber, check out the video above.
