We celebrated our one year anniversary on June 10th! In early February, we started to plan for the celebratory birthday event, and then…life changed. We are an “essential” business and had the option to remain open. We made the difficult decision to close our doors to the public as we thought it was the right thing to do for our community, our employees, and our customers. Instead, we launched our online ordering platform offering curbside pick-up and free home delivery and went for it!
At Pet Place Market, our goal is to provide pets and their owners with nutritional, well-researched choices for food, treats, and useful and fun supplies. We carry high-quality products and can compete with the grocery store or big box prices. Our expert staff is on hand seven days a week to help answer questions and ensure your pet is provided the best options. Our online ordering platform also allows you convenience and safety. Set up your food needs on an auto order online and we have you covered. You can still make changes to your auto order at each refill, but it helps you never have the last minute panic, “We’re out of food!” Unique to PPM is our self-service dog wash. We provide the tubs (saves the back), all the grooming and bathing supplies, dryers, aprons, etc., and we clean up after you.
If you have been to Pet Place Market, you know that your pets are always welcome, and getting to see them in the store is why we are in this business. While closed, we didn’t get to visit with your furry loved ones every day, and it took away the special experiences that we so enjoy. We were thrilled to reopen our doors in May with social distance paws throughout the store, and separate entrances for self-wash customers vs. our retail customers, not to mention the rigorous disinfecting and cleaning consistently in place. The self-service dog wash is open. We have two of the three baths running every day, in order to allow social distancing within the spa. Our customers have been grateful to have their pets smelling sweet again. We, in turn, get to see our customers and their furry loved ones, and especially during these difficult times, it brings great joy to our day!
We have appreciated the community support of our launch and the opportunity to partner with a number of local businesses in efforts to keep downtown Anacortes vibrant. We are in this together! If you or any of your pet-owning friends haven’t given us a visit, please come and see us soon.
