Downtown Detroit is getting a new pet boutique. City Bark will celebrate its grand opening in The Albert at Capitol Park this week, with doors officially opening at 11 a.m. on Feb. 24.
City Bark is the latest retail store to open its doors in The Albert, located at 1214 Griswold. The 1,250-square-foot City Bark will feature 15 different types of dog and cat food, as well as a freezer section to serve raw bones and pet treats for the increased nutritional value. The store will be pet friendly.
Oh, at the opening event, there will be “Beer Right Meow” from HopCat Detroit, as well as human snacks and pet treats for their furry friends.
According to a release, every pet who visits the store over the weekend will receive a City Bark bandana. The grand opening will also feature a selfie station where guests can post a photo with their pet to Instagram with the hashtag #citybarkdetroit for a chance to win a $100 gift card to the store.
“Owning a pet should be convenient and enjoyable, and that’s what City Bark and our selection of pet products are meant to promote,” Judson said. “Our product line has been expanded for our new location, and our delivery service provides our customers with easy access to food and supplies for their pets, delivered directly to their home or office.”
City Bark plans to partner with local businesses to host vaccination clinics, grooming services, training and pet owner education classes. The company is committed to raising awareness for local animal rescue organizations and plans to host adoption events on a regular basis.
