HORIZON WEST As soon as the dog days of summer are over, Lakeside Village will be getting its very own Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming shop.
Woof Gang, a neighborhood pet-store chain that currently has 64 locations, is set to move into the 1,100-square-foot space that Anytime Fitness previously occupied. Morgan Gritzer, Woof Gang’s public relations and telecommunication specialist, said the new location will open this fall.
Each Woof Gang location is a neighborhood store that offers gourmet dog treats, pet food, pet supplies, accessories and sometimes grooming. Some locations also have a veterinary clinic and doggie daycare services.
The pet store focuses mainly on pet foods with healthy and natural ingredients and sells a variety of them, catering to all diets from raw and frozen to canned and dehydrated foods, as well as the classic kibble. It also sells myriad pet accessories, from leashes, collars and toys to treats and biscuits, chew-toy items and even doggie spa products.
High-quality food brands that the company currently sells include Primal Pet Foods, Natural Balance Pet Food, Nature’s Variety, Taste of the Wild, The Honest Kitchen and Vital Essentials.
“(It) will be a one-stop shop for residents for pet food, treats, chews, accessories, grooming and more,” Gritzer said of the new Horizon West location. “We are so excited to expand in the Windermere community.”
Locally, Woof Gang also has two locations in Dr. Phillips, one in Windermere, one in Summerport and one in Winter Garden. Additionally, it is adding its third Orlando support center — a 2,100-square-foot space in Dr. Phillips — by the end of the year.
