SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The operators of Bos-Man’s Barber Society at Mall St. Vincent in Shreveport say they have not had air conditioning for three years.

They have asked the mall to fix the unit and have had several interactions with management about the problem, with no resolution.

They say they are losing customers during the summer months because the heat feels too uncomfortable. Several barbers say they are almost at a breaking point.

“It just ain’t my customers, it’s everybody. I had a customer thought he died, he almost passed out. He woke up, said it was hot. I don’t know if it was the a/c or internally but he was sweating,” barber Jamarcus Anderson said.

KSLA News 12 reached out to the mall’s managers for comment, but the office was closed and their voice mail box was full. We also reached out to the mall owner, Brookfield Properties. Leasing director Joseph Brown said he could not comment on a tenant and directed us back to the mall office.
