Correction: In the original version of the story, Borderstan incorrectly identified the owner of Planet Pet as Linda Welch. The business is owned by Rock and Susie Benson.
Two beloved 14th Street sister businesses are officially gone from the corridor. Green Pets and Dogs By Day have moved and rebranded as Planet Pet as one businesses at 1711 Florida Avenue, the corner of Florida and Champlain Street NW. Friday was opening day.
Fortunately, store consultant Linda Welch said the owners area planning a boutique pet store at 1410 14th Street, hopefully the first week of November.
The new 14th Street store will offer an expanded selection of pets supplies, including many items from local suppliers, as well as grooming services. It will be in the former site of Mar Del Plata restaurant, between Rhode Island and P NW.
