“The grand opening of Marblehead’s newest place to pamper your pet has opened with a flourish thanks to The Marblehead Peninsula Chamber of Commerce,” said owner Cheri Cunningham. She has been grooming dogs and cats since March 6 at the storefront located in the Cube Smart Strip Mall located between Canoe Club Restaurant and Fort Firelands at 5681 E. Harbor Road.
“Neighboring businesses have been very kind and supportive,” said Cunningham, “I can’t say enough kind words about Iris at Golden I Jewelry and Design and Jeanette Cox in the Cube Smart Office. The Peninsula Chamber goes out of its way to publicize and spread the word about any effort to enhance shopping and convenience here in the area.”
Present at the ribbon cutting, which took place Saturday, June 9, were Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass, Chamber President Al Stoss, Chamber Executive Assistant Judy Balsom and her husband Gary, as well as members of The Ottawa County Humane Society, Chamber members, family and friends. HH Nancy Leach, owner of Lucy’s Pet Emporium in Bellville, was on hand to provide treats for any pet in attendance. The shop features hand-made items from Lucy’s as well as Fashionista Fidos on a regular basis and Cunningham would like to keep the “Made in the USA” a prominent theme in her store. Especially when considering foods and treats she only sells items made in America.
Grooming, treats, accessories and food will fill the bill at Furry Paws which is open for business except on Sunday and Monday. Those days and evenings require an appointment. Call 419-635-6369 or 614-325-6547 anytime for an appointment for grooming or to see real estate as Cunningham is still selling real estate.
