And we are back with another Black Business Spotlight! This week, we are highlighting a spot where you can get a new haircut, a new outfit, and some inspiration at the same time!
Business Name: Thread 128
Owner: Greg Carter
City: Saginaw, MI
Services: Barbershop, urban wear
Located at 2473 E. Remington in Saginaw, Thread 128 was established in December 2017. They provide sleek hair cuts and some great “Grab-and-go” urban wear that will definitely get you noticed. The owner, Greg Carter, says that his business offers not only fashion, but hopes and dreams as well. A major standout is that the space is covered with photos and memorabilia from local athletes and residents who have excelled in the professional world, which is a great conversation starter for their younger customers.
“We discuss, with the young ones, the virtues of hard work, determination, and focus while continuing the dream,” Carter says. “ We won’t all be pro athletes, but college or a trade is more than possible. Our kids are visual, and when they see these professional people from Saginaw, the dream seems attainable.”
