Favorite Things: Weldon Jack

Blending a store, barbershop and family inspiration



Jerrod Smith

 


Quality, honor and dependability are not just buzzwords for owner Jerrod Smith of Weldon Jack. Located at the corner of Western and NW 36th, Weldon Jack opened in December 2013, and instantly tapped into an unmet need in the metro area: a full-service barbershop coupled with a retail establishment that is honestly so thoroughly unique there is nothing to compare it to.
 

That might have something to do with the inspiration behind the shop and the name. Jack is Smith’s grandfather, and Weldon is his middle name, but also serves as a play on the words “well done.” With attention to detail in every aspect of the shop, from the carefully curated merchandise to the team of barbers and the quality services they provide, “Well Done Jack” is nothing short of a mantra.

The spirit of the shop harkens back to when things were more intentional and service was top notch. That goes for the old-school barber treatments, plus the motorcycle accessories, outdoor products, art, home goods and high-quality personal care products you’ll find on the retail side, as well. There is incredible meaning and thought behind this one-of-a-kind shop.

When asked about the overall goal of Weldon Jack, Jerrod puts it perfectly: “Weldon Jack was an ideal before it was ever a store. It was born from the inspiration of my grandfather – Jack Weldon Smith – and the legacy that I saw in his life. He was flawed and human, but still driven to be more and better. As his grandson, I saw it firsthand and up close … and saw that the ‘more and better’ that he wanted wasn’t for himself, but for those that followed after him. That is the birthplace of Weldon Jack and Weldon Jack Brand Products.” Well said … and well done.

It’s simple, reliable and adaptable – just roll the top. Guaranteed for life, too.”
