Bark n Bones on Main celebrated its Grand Opening on Thursday, October 15th at 8:30am in their store at 456 Main Street, New Rochelle. Mayor Noam Bramson welcomed owner Lottice Williams and staff stating, “It’s terrific to welcome a new business to New Rochelle under any circumstances but this is a particularly difficult year so it requires even greater energy to overcome the obstacles associated with it so I really wish you success. I have no doubt that for many pet owners in New Rochelle your store will be a welcome addition to our community.”
Also on hand for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony were Karel Littman, Executive Director of the New Rochelle Downtown BID, Lisa Davis, Business Ambassador for the City of New Rochelle, Catherine White, Executive Director of the NR Chamber of Commerce and Cinnamon, Williams’ tiny Shih Tzu.
Williams noticed the lack of a downtown pet store and thought Main Street would be the perfect location for her new business. She has been busy throughout the summer getting the store ready for its Grand Opening. They held a Dog Ice Cream Social in July and added a dog grooming Bark n Bones Beauty Spa in August. “Bark n Bones offers top of the line brands in food and clothing. We care about the well-being of your four-legged fur family and we offer superb customer service,” said Williams. “We chose New Rochelle because New Rochelle is the new Westchester Mega City.” Offering both essential items like dog food, leashes, and feeding bowls and fun items like Halloween costumes, toys and outwear; Bark n Bones on Main is ready to meet all your pet needs.
“We’re glad to welcome Bark N Bones on Main to the Chamber. As a dog owner myself, I’m always on the lookout for unique dog products and Bark N Bones really has it all,” said Robert Hayes, President of the Chamber of Commerce. “This Grand Opening will be the launch of some innovative programs and products for dog owners across the City.”
Said NRBID Chairman Marc Jerome: “Downtown New Rochelle has a terrific dedicated and entrepreneurial business community. We welcome our newest Main Street, business owner -- Ms. Lottice Williams and her team-- to Main Street at the Bark N Bones Boutique. We already can see they are meeting the market for pet care and trend-setting accessories with great creativity and vision.”
Bark n Bones on Main will be celebrating Halloween on October 29th from 5-8pm at their Halloween Dog Costume Party. There will be prizes for costumes and treats for both pets and owners.
