Chances are, no matter what direction you drive in Traverse City, you are seeing detour signs and orange cones. The D.O.G. Bakery at 535 West Front Street sits in the middle of one of those construction projects. Started at the end of April, the project is scheduled to be completed by the middle of July, a little earlier than anticipated because the construction will be going on through the Cherry Festival – a decision that has the support of the West End business owners.
Because of the construction, the D.O.G. Bakery’s sales are down about 10%, which is less than they expected so they are grateful for that. To help customers have a stress-free visit to their store, they are suggesting that you use this construction map to get to the store easier. The suggested routes go through the residential area and brings you to the store through the alley, where you can park behind the store.
The D.O.G. Bakery has been in Traverse City for more than 11 years and is a visible supporter of community events and organizations including the animal rescue groups in town. They bake healthy dog treats, sell commercial dog and cat food, dog toys, dog fashions and accessories, leashes and much more. Customers can also bring their dogs to the store to pick out their own merchandise – and often end up featured on their Facebook page. The D.O.G. Bakery also has a kiosk in the Grand Traverse Mall located in front of the GAP store to help customer have more access to their treats during the construction. This temporary “store” will close on Tuesday, June 30th.
Don’t let a little construction stop you from treating your pooch to some yummy treats. You know you’ll be in the dog house with your furry family members if you don’t stop by!
