Genna and John are the husband and wife owners of the Mystic Pet Shop in Mystic, CT. The dog gift boutique shares their downtown location with popular destinations such as the Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Pizza trail—the town sees about half a million visitors each year!
“We have been running the shop for eight years together. His family started the original store back in the 1980s—it was an Agway feed store then on the outskirts of town near the railroads. We moved to our new location in downtown Mystic in July 2014. Our shop has gifts and souvenirs for the pet parent. We focus on selling products that are high-quality, made in the USA and are locally sourced. That made Poochie-Pets the perfect fit for us—we’re even in the same state! We loved their Live in Dog Years line, and ordered some custom products that are Mystic-branded. Now we have ornaments, three-hook leash holders, and beverage insulators that remind you to Dig Deeper and Play Nicely.”
