The ultimate OMY plan

Got my hair cut today. I've been going to the same guy since I was a kid (he has to be in his mid eighties). He told me he was closing shop and retiring. His landlord is demolishing the strip mall he's been in for 50 years and offered to buy his lease.

His comment "I wanted to keep going until 2016 to make my three score years and ten" brought "you've got to be well over seventy". He said "no, no, I started working as a barber in 1946, I wanted 70 years in the field".

If not for the landlord, how many OMYs could he have managed?
I'm not crazy. Honest, the judge had me tested.
