An East Main Street barber shop is being shut down after getting evicted from its space, law enforcement personnel said at the scene Tuesday morning.

A manager at the store declined to comment.

Store owner Charlie Green didn’t want to talk about the circumstances around the eviction, but said he was trying to take the move in stride.

“God has his way of moving things, making things move,” Mr. Green said. “Everything happens for a reason.”

A pile of chairs, decorations, and potted plants was stacked outside the store Tuesday morning, as workers loaded the supplies into a moving truck and nearby van.

Knu Style N Temple had moved to the Woolworth building location last November.

The store was on Peconic Avenue for the previous 11 years, and was on Old Quogue Road in Riverside for five years before that, owner Charlie Green previously told the News-Review

Plans are in the works to renovate the recently sold Woolworth building for apartments and retail, including a gym.

Mr. Green said he wasn’t sure whether the barber shop would reopen in a new location.

“It’s up in the air,” he said. “Right now everything is in God’s hands.”
