At Saturday's grand opening of the Pet Pantry Warehouse, instead of a ribbon cutting, local dogs from town chewed through a string of sausages tied across the opening to the store. The non-traditional "ribbon chewing" is emblematic of the philosophy of the store, where pets take priority.
"Our No. 1 goal is the health and wellness of every pet," said company co-owner Adam Jacobson. With his brother, Ari, the family owns three other Pet Pantry Warehouse locations — in Greenwich, Rye and Larchmont — and another store is set to open Nov. 3 in New Canaan.
