New tenant set to move into historic Hannifin’s building

Get Local presented by 116 and West

For 111 years, the small building at 1024 W. Main St. hosted a cigar shop.

Now, after a few months without a tenant, the former Hanifin’s will welcome a new business.

Belmont Barbershop will move in to the small 1,300 square foot building in coming weeks, according to permit reports.

Before the pandemic, owner Ryan Salamon gave haircuts and shaves out of a space inside the Alaska Center just a few steps away from the old cigar shop.

From 1904 until last summer, the one-story building at the corner of Main St. and 11th Street gave Boiseans a place to get their tobacco fix. The latest owner, Stan Minder, shut the doors for the last time in July.

Belmont’s application notes they won’t make any significant changes to the space – with a few cosmetic upgrades.
