After years of service in the United States Navy during World War 2, George J. Kurovics was faced with the decision of continuing his service or opening a barber shop in Rocky Point, New York. Having quickly elevated to the role of First Class Petty Officer at a young age, and having served mainly in the Pacific Ocean, George decided to make the transition back to civilian life as a proud veteran.
In 1948, George opened George’s Rocky Point Barber Shop in a much smaller and less developed downtown Rocky Point. Having grown up in Wading River, George understood the great promise and potential of this area, and this belief gave him the confidence to invest in the future of this growing town.
George’s Barber Shop has been a pillar of the Rocky Point small business community for 66 years. The focus on affordable, premium haircuts has made George’s a family haircutting destination. Customers enjoy a traditional haircut in a historic and nostalgic atmosphere.
