Even a haircut is effected by inflation

Mike Thayer

It's official, inflation has a solid grip on America and there's no indication that grip will loosen any time soon.

The price of gasoline is up 50% over last year.  The price of groceries is up almost 13% and that doesn't include the costs for beef, pork and chicken, up an average 18% overall.  FYI, beef tops the big three meats at a 23% increase over last year.

20220623_124022(1)I went into Fantastic Sam's today to get a haircut.  I've been going there since 2016, where the price for a men's haircut has been $12.95 all that time.  On Saturday, 07/23, the price went up to $18.  That's more than a 28% increase.  I should have gotten my haircut on Friday...

I don't like the increase, but I understand it.  The cost of everything is up, fuel for your vehicle, energy for your home, food - grocery & restaurant, pretty much anything you consume, the price has gone up.  Part of that problem are labor and supply/distribution shortages. When visiting with the lady giving me a haircut today, I found out she's a popcorn lover like I am.   She then informed me there is a popcorn shortage going on!  Seriously?  Popcorn of all things?  "Thanks" Joe!

So sadly, Fantastic Sam's may no longer be the cheapest place to get a good haircut in town.  I'll be updating the price list I did just last month.

Stay tuned for that list, my guess is if Fantastic Sam's has raised their prices, the other shops have too.
