The pet market, a local pet chain, now has two locations on West 72nd Street: a newly opened at 132, between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, and another 30 years old at 224, between Broadway and West End Avenue. “We don’t plan to close the old store, as it’s become an establishment, but space is limited,” said Sophia Angelakis, who founded the first store in 1991. The Pet Market is a family business. Sophia’s son and daughter work with her. “Our goal is to bring well-being to pets. To achieve this, we needed to diversify, with more nutritious foods, holistic remedies and supplements. It’s hard to survive in this economic climate, but we do it by providing a pleasant shopping experience, free treats, a variety of quality foods to choose from and, most importantly, knowledgeable staff to give great advice for every need. . Yes, people are shopping online and many pet stores have closed. But isn’t it wonderful to walk in and take a look at all the merchandise that has been carefully selected by professionals? the newest pet market is located at 132 West 72nd Street and is open seven days a week, Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thanks to Gretchen for the photo.
There is a pizzeria called Traviata two entering next to Smoke on Broadway between 105th and 106th streets, informant Tracy tells us. “The fire department inspector was here today and I spoke to the owner. He said he was going to be called Traviata Two because his original Traviata pizza is also in the 60s West in the Upper West and it will be a second branch. Pretty intense to put a pizzeria right in front of Mama’s TOO! The Pizza War on Broadway and at the 106th! “
Camp, a “family experiences store”, opens its doors on July 1 in a space that spans the second and third floors of the Columbus Circle shops. The camp is like a playground that doubles as a toy store. He has a few stores in town and in Connecticut now. “It’s free to play in Camp stores, but the walls, tables, and even the floors are also filled with toys available for purchase,” the Times reported. “Their stock mixes up the usual suspects, like kids’ scale play kitchens and LOL Surprise! dolls, with books, balls, figurines, and craft kits from small vendors – an organized variety that helps Camp differentiate itself from Amazon. Thanks to Upper West Side for the advice.
A new deli opens in the former home of Pier 72 Diner at 72nd and West End Avenue. Pier 72 had closed last year after 41 years at this corner, despite the efforts of some locals to save it.
Pilates Club plans to open a new location at 580 Columbus Avenue near 88th Street. Club PIlates has another location on 57th Street. The new location will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week, and from 8 to 5 on weekends, depending on website.
Crave Fishbar reopened at 428 Amsterdam Ave [81st]. Co-founder Brian Owens tells us, “We are currently open Wednesday through Sunday from 4pm to 10pm. Our famous #oystergram happy hour is 4-6 all over the restaurant. And we plan to reopen for brunch (11:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.) on the weekend of July 4th. He is “delighted to be back open and to see so many of our regulars”.
