We are so delighted to announce that after sixteen years at our current location, the Barkery is undergoing a big trans-fur-mation!
In our desire to serve and care for the community and pets of Brookside and beyond, we will be expanding and relocating to a larger location in the Brookside East neighborhood. Come find a warm welcome at 6201 Oak Street (former home of the upscale restaurant Plate) beginning in spring, 2020.
We are thrilled to soon offer larger and more accommodating parking to help protect our pets and customers alike from the busy street area! The new location will allow us to also offer a broader selection of all-natural products so that each customer and individual pet can choose exactly the right fit for their fur family! And of course, we’ll still offer the bathing and grooming services you’ve come to rely on.
Brookside Barkery and Bath owners Delena and Larry Stout expressed enthusiasm about the opening of the new store in Spring 2020 noting, “We’ve spent over 15 years in our current store in the Brookside shops and have expanded twice, but we felt it was time to freshen things up. We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers a larger, more welcoming space to bring their animals. We’re also able to provide our own off-street parking area that will make it safer for customers and their pets to enter and exit the store without the risk of a busy street.”
Stout continued, “We’re also excited to be a part of the great new Brookside East development – yet still close enough to our former location in a neighborhood where customers can easily stop by while out for a stroll with their dog.”
Gregg Johnson, property owner of the new space noted, “We’re excited to be part of the Barkery’s expansion. It’s such an iconic building on Oak Street, we were glad to bring it back to life after the fire and thrilled to work with Brookside Barkery and Bath to create a space literally from scratch that will meet all their needs – from bathing and grooming to space for more inventory and expanded parking for their customers.” Johnson continued, “As pet owners and long-time customers, Brookside Barkery holds a special place in our hearts. We really trust Delena and Larry and their great staff with our own pets. We’re confident that our team will be able to take a beautiful space that suffered a tragic fire and completely transform it into something new and special that will become the perfect home for the Barkery.”
We can’t wait to open our new home and to welcome all familiar faces and new furry family alike!
