Spotlight on Airedale Antics
Airedale Antics is a pet supply store and grooming business that focuses on using and selling products that are all natural and healthy for pets. We sell pet food, treats and supplies like collars, leashes, beds, toys. We pride ourselves in educating our customers about the value of good pet nutrition and how the right food and supplements can enhance their pet’s total health. The right food can help to eliminate and prevent many pet health problems. We have two groomers currently and specialize in working with anxious or special needs pets.
On the 4th Sunday of every month, we sponsor a charity nail trim. We have two volunteers (one is a former groomer) who will cut or grind a pet’s nails for a $5 cash donation. Cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets are welcome. Each month the proceeds are donated to a local smaller rescue/agency. The rescue sends a volunteer who helps by handing out literature and educating those attending about their group. This helps to increase both adoptions and awareness of the needs of the pet and wildlife community of Metro St Louis. It also allows everyone access to very affordable and necessary nail trimming for their pets. Chamber Member Businesses are always invited to partner with us on the event and can offer their support in the way of advertising the event. It’s a great way to get the community involved!
For our industry, COVID has had a real impact on many pets being able to find their forever homes. Pet adoptions soared and pets are often the only support many have during this time of isolation and illness. We have been lucky to be able to survive and grow during the pandemic. The community has been super supportive!
The Chamber has allowed us access to seminars and events that promote new ways to continue to grow our business. This March will mark our 15th year here in Maplewood.
What is your favorite Maplewood or Richmond Heights Chamber business? We don’t have just one! Maven has really helped us keep customers healthy with their great hand sanitizer. George and the team at Scheidt Hardware, Vom Fass STL, Traveling Tea, Mauhaus Cat Cafe & Lounges, The Crows Nest and so many more – we all have worked to support each other and that is what this community is all about. Purrfect!
