B’Paper: Tailored Pet Likely to Close

Following the death last month of Tailored Pet owner Serena Bellino, the Brooklyn Paper reports that the store is likely to close for good:

Brooklyn Paper: Death Claims…: “We have a connection with our customers and an obligation to them,” said Andrea Demetropoulos, who worked at the store for 27 of its 35 years. “We want to keep the store open and do the same things Serena did. We want to keep her legacy going.”

But Serena Bellino’s brother, Tom Bellino, said that’s not going to happen. The main problem is that Serena Bellino did not leave a will, so before anyone could take over the store, an executor will have to be appointed.

    What a shame. We used to take our beagle there for grooming or boarding when we went away. He was always tired but happy when we picked him up from vacation. One time we came home from a trip a little early and we could hear his happy howl from the park blocks way at our Concord Village apartment.

    I heard the former employees are talking to the landlord and waiting for the next legal steps necessary to get/keep the ball rolling to re-open.
    Andrea is urging former customers and supporters to e-mail friendsofserena@gmail.com ~ to be kept up to date on the latest information as it comes about.
