Local pet bakery celebrates one-year anniversary

Posted: Updated:
CHICOPEE, MA (WSHM) -

The Paw Street Barkery celebrated the one-year anniversary of their storefront on Saturday.

The business began as an online store in 2009.

After their online success, they opened their first storefront in 2013.

The "barkery" prides itself in providing healthy dog treats made with all organic ingredients.

The store's owner said that the building gives them a better chance to get to know their customers.

"We've seen steady growth since the beginning," said Shawn Sherry. "We had a great opening at Christmas last year. We then had the grand opening a few weeks later, and ever since then, we've been getting more and more steady customers coming in. We always had some interaction with customers online, but since the storefront, having dogs being able to come right in and be able to interact with the customers has really been great."

Saturday's event included a raffle, games and even free treats for both pets and pet owners.
