From a press release:
Metro Mutts announced it is opening a new location at 407 8th Street, SE. The store will open the week of October 1st, and will be the company’s second location, after its flagship store at 508 H Street, NE.
Metro Mutts will be moving into the space of an existing pet store, Pawticulars. “When we were first approached by Pawticulars about moving into their space, we saw it as a great opportunity to grow our business and take advantage of the commercial activity on Barracks Row,” said co‐owner Lee Hartshorn. He continued, “Our two stores have had a very cooperative relationship since Metro Mutts first opened in 2009, so this seemed like a very natural progression for us both.” Pawticulars owner Jennifer Zatkowski echoed Hartshorn’s sentiments: “After opening the store eight years ago, I found it difficult to devote my time to both the store and my family. I am pleased and excited that Metro Mutts is moving into the space and am confident they will provide local customers the same attention and care they’ve come to expect.”
