Mayor Cuts Ribbon for Muda’s Barbershop

Mayor Nicholas Sacco cut the ribbon to officially open Muda’s Barbershop on May 26. The shop at 7515 Broadway is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Owner Muda began working in barbershops at 12 years old, sweeping the floors. Born and raised in North Bergen, he spent four years cutting hair in a previous barbershop at this same location before buying the shop from the former owner and setting up his own business, offering all styles of haircuts, including scissor cuts, fades, designs, and more.

Commissioner Hugo Cabrera, Freeholder Anthony Vainieri, and numerous other township officials and local residents attended the ribbon cutting to show their support and offer their best wishes.
