Being a small business owner, is no easy task. Countless hours, missed holidays and vacations, and sleepless nights are just a part of what goes into an owner's day. Their businesses are a true refection of themselves, and their passion. And, as big business is ever at the doorstep, they persevere. Along the way, customers become family. Undoubtedly, there are times when many feel is it worth it? We sure think it is.
Creator of the National Mom and Pop Small Business Day, Rick Segel, says "this holiday was created to honor the business that my parents started on 3/29/39 in Everett , MA —a hat shop called Ruth’s. It later developed into a woman’s specialty clothing store and moved to Medford , MA , increasing in size to 10,000 square feet with over $2 million dollars revenue until it closed in 1997."
~According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, there are more than 27 million small businesses in the United States.
Erika started this business 8 years ago for many reasons; one being the health and well being of her own pets. Another was she wanted to create a space to bring her furkids to work, and welcome other furkids to come in, feel welcome, and get great food, treats, and cool accessories. She's created an environment of comfort, and is always a phone call away, in case you have a quick question or concern. Being part of the local economy, she understands how important it is to be a community leader. And we hope you always feel warmly greeted, for we are only able to what we do because of incredible customers like you.
