In our current economy, its nice to be able to recognize successful local businesses. PJ’s Paws and Claws in the Magnolia Village is celebrating seven years in business in April. PJ’s retail store opened in Magnolia Village in 2002. The store is a boutique and grooming salon for dog and cat lovers.
The month-long celebration features the return of PJ’s prize wheel. With any $30 retail purchase, customers can spin the wheel and win prizes, including dog and cat toys, gourmet chocolate and other fun gifts. They can also spin the wheel if they donate $5 or more to the Seattle Animal Shelter’s Help the Animals Fund. Last year the wheel promotion raised almost $400 for the fund designated to cover medical expenses for shelter pets.
Owner Patti Howell says “These seven years just flew by, while we were having fun with our furry friends and their families. It felt like only one dog year.”
Another great reason to visit the store is Jelly the cat, seen here peeking down from the ceiling. PJ’s Paws and Claws donates 5% of its profits to animal rescue and adoption agencies in King County.
