Al Clark returned to the Stag Barbershop in Maple Ridge last week to help out its current owner

Customers at The Stag Barbershop were greeted by a familiar face last week.

Al Clark returned to the downtown Maple Ridge business to help out friend and current owner Bob Williams (pictured on the left) while an employee went on vacation.

Clark retired to Ladysmith in 1993. Williams began apprenticing under him in 1961. Clark opened his first barbershop, Clark’s Clip Joint, in 1953. But it was destroyed by fire. He reopened on 224th Street in 1958 as the Stag.
