It's one place where men can come in and feel relaxed, sit and read the paper, watch television or talk about the weather while waiting for a chair to open up.
Day has been so impressed that he actually bought the shop from it's previous owner, Bob Childers, at the first of June.
"I want to bring back the feel of the old time barber shops," he said. "When I found out Bobby wanted to sell it, I thought it would be a great opportunity to keep it going."
Childers had been the owner since January of 1988. He had purchased the business from Johnnie I. Greene, who opened the shop on July 15, 1970, when the Village Square Shopping Center opened.
Greene and Childers are still cutting hair at Village.
"It's good to see some new blood in here," Greene said. "It's looking great."
An overall cleaning up was the first thing Day did after taking over the shop.
"I wanted to make it better for the community, someplace people could bring their kids," he said.
Already there are families that use the shop for their haircuts. Day pointed out one family that brings in five generations each month for haircuts.
"And that's just for Bob," he said. "I want folks to bring their kids here and those kids can grow up to bring their kids back."
In addition to Childers and Greene, Rob McMurry, Charles Adkins and Charlie Turner are barbers working at the shop.
"These barbers have really helped me out alot," Day said. "They've been very cooperative and things are going really good."
Next month Day will take his final test to become a master barber himself.
"I hope to be doing this for a long time," he said.
The Village Square Barber Shop takes only walk-ins from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 to 3 on Saturdays.
