To all of our wonderful customers past and present:
We are very excited about our new creation Buddies and Babes Kensington and we thank you all so much for the enthusiasm and well-wishes we’ve received regarding this project! Starting December 1, 2016 we will be at our new location down the street at 4071 Adams Avenue (next door to Kensington Video).
We realize that it has been quite a while since we’ve communicated with you over the website, social media, email blast, etc…
You know, one of the best things about having a small business is all the people you get to meet and become friends with over the years. It’s been fun to see kids grow up and people move in and out of the ‘hood. Unfortunately, I have to say that we’ve also seen people and pets pass away. My hope is that this email does not conjure up sad memories of those we have lost, but rather lets you know from our hearts to yours, that we really enjoyed serving, becoming friends with and laughing with your loved ones too. I have many names, memories and stories that come to mind of those who have moved on. People with personalities as tough as bulldogs who would make me laugh out loud about current events or things that were going on in their personal lives, and dogs with personalities more like humans who would stare me right in the eyes and try so hard to telepathically communicate with me to tell me that they wanted a treat or that they just wanted to get to know me.
I want you to know that our new space was built out with all people, pets and kids of the community in mind and it’s a space where we will continue our friendships, build new ones and talk about and remember those who were part of the Kensington Pet Supply family not too long ago.
We still have so many ideas and just like KPS, Buddies and Babes will also grow organically and based on the community’s needs. This indeed is a new concept: kids and pets, but after years of children coming into our store thinking that the toys were for them, I thought why not have things for both the “buddies and babes”! It was really exiting to come up with the concept and to now see it become a reality. We invite you along for this ride as we grow the new store and we look forward to serving you with the continued high-level customer service and unique product selection that Kensington Pet Supply has always been known for.
