WICHITA — Elvis hasn't left the building yet, but he's planning on it.

Shawn "Elvis" Willson and Doug Brewer are moving their Deville's Barbershop to the space at Eaton Place that Visual Fusion is vacating.

"As a barber, it's a prime location," Brewer says.

He expects a lot of walk-in traffic and business from nearby tenants, of which he says there are many.

The plan is to slightly change the name of the business and go with a "very old school" style, Brewer says.

The name Deville's Barbershop & Shaving Parlor shows "the focus of where we're going," he says.

Brewer says he and Willson want to "go back to roughly the '20s, '30s, when they did a lot of shaves – straight razor shaves."

"They're getting more popular as the days go by," Brewer says.
