We got a sneak peak inside the new Tailored Pet — now named Rocco and Jezebel for Pets — before its grand opening on Saturday. They’re still setting up shop and finishing the paintwork, but some photos are posted below.
Tomorrow, doors will open at 8:30 am and owner Andrea Demetropoulos will host a party with food and drink for humans and treats for the furry ones until 6:30 pm. The shop is at 89 Pineapple Walk, between Henry Street and Cadman Plaza West. For info, call (718) 855-8686.
Demetropoulos said she looks forward to working with the community and adding any services that people need. Currently, she will offer grooming, boarding, and in-house (that is, at the pet owners’ house) dog and cat sitting and grooming, pick up and delivery, and a senior citizen’s day. Also, should residents need someone to watch over Fido for the day or afternoon, Demetropoulos said she has the resources to do that, too.
The new shop comes after owner Serena Bellino died in December, and a longtime friend and employee Demetropoulos decided she wanted to continue Bellino’s legacy and keep the shop open. Tomorrow’s festivities will also serve as a memorial of sorts for Bellino.
