Longtime LO business becomes the sixth to sign a retail lease in the new downtown mixed-use development

Country Square Barber Shop will move from its longtime home on Second Street and become the Richard Henry Barber Company when it re-locates to The Windward in downtown Lake Oswego next year.
The traditional barber shop has been in Lake Oswego for nearly 60 years. Its new name honors owner Tyler Atkinson’s great-great-grandfather, who fought in the Civil War and homesteaded in Eastern Montana.
Atkinson, a Lake Oswego native, and business partner Jeramie Lund say their shop works with more than 1,500 clients every month — “a humbling and fulfilling way to spend one’s working hours.”
“Being at The Windward will allow us to grow and do so much more of what we enjoy: treating customers like family and giving meticulous, quality service through our community-oriented brand,” they say.
Richard Henry Barber Company is the sixth retail tenant announced by developer Patrick Kessi for The Windward, a mixed-use development that will include 200 apartments and about 42,000 square feet of retail space when it is completed in early 2018. Salt & Straw Ice Cream, Bamboo Sushi, Chuckie Pies, StarCycle and Adorn have also signed leases.
