On these beautiful summer days when you need to run errands at a local outdoor mall or run to a store a couple blocks down, you'd feel bad leaving your furry best friend at home. The small retail store that I work at is dog-friendly, and it got me thinking about other stores that might have been welcoming dogs in all along without us knowing! Here's a list of stores that won't turn you away if you bring along Fido:
This is a little obvious, I mean, if they have other animals in the store, why not dogs? But just to confirm, these pet supply stores do allow your dog in:
Saks Fifth Avenue
Tractor Supply Co.
Bass Pro Shops
Crate and Barrel
Barnes and Noble
And if you live in New York, Washington, Alaska, Connecticut, Nevada, North Carolina, Arizona, Florida, New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, California or Georgia, you can follow this link to find specific stores in your state that allow your dog in with you.
Remember, you'll most likely never be able to take your dog in a restaurant or beverage place for sanitary reasons. Unless it's a dog restaurant... more on that to come later?
So put a leash on Fido and get those new pair of sneakers you've been eyeing at Foot Locker!
