Pet Store Wonderland
Chris' Montana Avenue neighborhood just became imminently more shoppable with the addition of George, my favorite retail pet store from the Bay Area. Its streamlined, modern aesthetic coupled with a candy shop array of fine dog and cat goods makes for a very nice shopping experience indeed. I came away with a rubber donut and a fluffy squirrel with replaceable squeakers. They even gave me some doggie chicken jerky samples as a bonus for stopping by.
Most pet stores are just so dumb. George is all about good design, a sense of irony, and upscale practicality. Why aren't more retailers jumping on this bandwagon? I have no idea.
