Press release: Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming
Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming, the U.S. leader in specialty pet retail and grooming, will celebrate the opening of its newest neighborhood store in Bluffton, South Carolina with a grand opening event from August 26 to September 4.
Providing the very best in pet care to locals and visitors alike, the new Woof Gang Bakery is a locally-owned franchise. The location offers a wide selection of healthy pet foods, gourmet baked treats, toys and pet supplies. The store is located in Old Town across from DuBois Park at 7 Lawton Street, Bluffton, South Carolina.
The store grand opening kicks off with a ribbon-cutting on World Dog Day – Thursday, August 26, at 10 a.m. The first 20 customers in the store will receive free Woof Gang Bakery gourmet dog treats for a year.
The 10-day grand opening celebration runs from August 26 to September 4. Throughout the event, customers can enter to win “pawsome” raffle prizes including free pet food for a year, a gift basket filled with dog toys, collar and leash sets, store gift certificates and more pet pampering giveaways. A pet grooming credit will be among the raffle prizes and the store is hoping to offer professional pet grooming services beginning in September.
Caring for pets is a family affair for area residents Jaime and Will Coley, the owners of the new Bluffton neighborhood store. They are passionate about pets and the quality and service associated with the Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming brand.
“Bluffton is nuts for mutts… they should consider calling it ‘ruffton!’” said Jaime. “Dogs are such a significant part of life here, and we are thrilled to be a part of the fabric of this community in a meaningful way with a family-friendly, pet-friendly business. Every customer is important and we offer service and products that are unique to each client and their individual pets’ needs.”
With an ongoing mission to support local pet communities, as part of this grand opening, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming will donate 1,000 pounds of pet food to be shared between two local 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organizations – Noah’s Ark Rescue and Palmetto Animal League.
Looking ahead, the Coleys are eager to cultivate their community involvement by continuing to partner with area animal rescues and shelters. They would also like to rally Old Town businesses to support a Wag-O-Ween event this fall. Plans to expand the brand locally are already in the works with a second Bluffton location planned to open later this year and additional stores in the region in 2022.
