Grandma is retiring (mostly) and will be helping me on Saturdays only as it is our busiest retail day. As such, I will not be making reminder phone calls. Please be sure to record your appointment where you put all your other important appointments so you don’t forget us.
Retail will be downsized and the hours will change.
We will be keeping Abady and other food lines that clients are currently buying along with spa products, CBD and a smaller assortment of treats and toys. All remaining retail will go on sale.
Downsizing the retail will allow room for expanding grooming in the future.
The store will only be open if we’re grooming. As hours can change weekly, I will be updating the phone message, website, Facebook and Google each weekend. For clients that come from afar, please know you can reach out to me if my hours do not coincide with the time you need. I’m more than happy to meet any time. The store’s Facebook page is the easiest way to reach me (if the store is closed), but I do have my cell on the store hours notice on the front door if you need it.
After 17 years, and as much as I fought it, I can’t compete with online retailers and as such, I can no longer work 50-60 hours per week. I need to give back to my family time I have lost. But I want to still make myself available to all of those that have and continue to support us. It truly means the world to us! Thank you!
UPDATE: The October price increase is being postponed until early/mid 2023.
We did our best to absorb the ever increasing costs we've been hit with this year, but unfortunately we cannot continue do so any longer if we want to stay in business. Therefore, we will be increasing our grooming prices effective October 1, 2022. Thank you for your understanding. Our
salon necessitates a higher cost for grooms as For K-9s & Felines, LLC
offers your pet a private appointment where s/he is groomed start to finish in
a low-stress environment using gentle techniques. We use premium spa products
to maximize the results of the groom; our tools and equipment are high quality
to help achieve better and faster grooms and they are maintained regularly. We
belong to several national and international grooming associations and attend
educational seminars throughout the year which allows us to keep up to date on
new products and techniques, safety issues, etc. Nicoll is an AKC certified
groomer and has a certification for Pet First Aid/CPR.
Due to COVID, we are offering nail trims during nail clinics only. Please click here for more information. [Nail Clinic].
