Notorious D.O.G grand opening set for August 27 in Clarence
Partners create a new concept in retail shop for dogs
CLARENCE, NEW YORK – Shopping for dogs and dog lovers is about to get a lot more fun. Notorious D.O.G. LLC will celebrate the grand opening of their new store on Saturday, August 27 at 8625 Main Street in Clarence.
Entrepreneurs and experienced dog care professionals, Laura LaCongo and Jessica Mbugua have designed Notorious D.O.G. as a one-of-a-kind retail shopping experience they call “the dog stuff destination.” Just mix edgy with cool and add a slight touch of tradition and you get the idea. Customers—both people and dogs—are treated to a unique selection of dog foods, supplies, and gifts at the store’s location at the corner of Main Street and Circle Court.
“Organic and raw premium dog foods, supplies for dogs of every age, and hip gifts for pets and people are just part of the Notorious experience,” said LaCongo, a licensed vet technician.
“We’ve designed our entire store from the ground up with dogs and people in mind,” added Mbugua, a vet technician and RN. “For instance, we have a seating area inside where people can hangout while their dogs give our toys a test run, and in the summer they can enjoy our frozen ice cream on the outdoor patio.” The store also features educational videos on various products lines to help customers make informed decisions about their purchases.
Perks for dogs and their families include Notorious Rewards where shoppers earn points on every purchase, and at least once a month the store will host Notorious Rescues, an event that offers the public the opportunity to adopt dogs and cats from Western New York rescue groups. “We want to bring together pets and people who need each other,” said LaCongo.
The grand opening, which runs from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., will be complete with raffles and give-aways.
“We are easy to find and have plenty of parking,” said Mbugua. “Just look for our big dog collar sign on the corner.”
