The Festival Foods store on West Mason Street in Green Bay now has a “pup spot” where you can leave your pets while you shop.
The pet-friendly cages, which have been in place at this location for a few weeks, are located outside the front of the store, and are free to use. While they’re called “pup spots”, they can be used for other types of pets, like cats. Shoppers can leave their pet inside, lock the door, and take the key with them while they shop. The pup spots are in the shade, and include water for your pet.
“We have a lot of guests that shop our stores that like to bring their pets on their daily tasks,” said one of the store’s managers, Sue Waelchli. “And we really wanted a safe place for their pets to stay while they were able to grocery shop. It’s definitely a little too hot right now to be leaving your pets in your car.”
Other Festival locations with pup spots include the University Avenue store on Green Bay’s east side, the De Pere store, and a handful of others throughout the state.
