Local Pet Store Takes Home Second National Award

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - A local pet store is celebrating its second time winning a national award.

The Global Pet Expo has named Paws Natural Pet Emporium in the Tri-Cities the best independent pet store with between two and ten locations across the country.

Last year, Paw's Emporium took home the award for best customer service for an independent pet store, but this year, the store competed against hundreds of other nominees for overall excellence.

"It's amazing," said the store manager, Beverly LaFevre, "it kind of ups the bar on what people expect of us and what we need to do as a store to keep up with the reputation that we're now building for ourselves."

LaFevre says according to the judges at the Pet Expo, Paw's Natural Pet Emporium had a record number of nominations from customers and distributors, which was part of the reason the store took home the top prize.

Paws Natural Pet Emporium now has two locations in the Tri-Cities, one on Jadwin Avenue in Richland, and one on Clearwater in Kennewick.
