Happy Pets expands to second location

In other business news: counsellor Cheryl Bate opens new practice Business briefs

Whistler Happy Pets has opened a second location after 10 years as Whistler’s primary pet store.

After years of requests from pet-loving Whistlerites, the business has expanded to include a shop north of the Village. Conveniently located downstairs in Nesters Square next to Blackcomb Barber Shop, shoppers can now get food for the whole family in one stop. With a location close to the Village, they are sure to increase their customer base to include more visitors.

The products offered at the Nesters’ shop have been selected so that those travelling with pets can easily get all the supplies they need. Also, locals living north of the Village can avoid the long trip south.

Although the space is much smaller than the Function location, it stills carries all of the best dog foods. Also available at the store are treats, eco-friendly pet toys and beds, leashes, collars, accessories and more. They are open daily from 11:30 a.m. - 7 p.m. except Thursdays.

Owner Tom Roberts, manager Hayley Wirschung and the Happy Pets team are excited to welcome customers new and old. For more information drop by, call them at 604-962-2992 or visit their website at www.whistlerhappypets.com.
