If you like to pamper your pup or coddle your kitty, there is a new place to take your pet for grooming. Aloha Pet Grooming had its Grand Opening on Wednesday, November 4, at 4:44 pm (yes, it was planned that way). This was one of the best attended individual business grand openings I’ve been to, which I think bodes well for Aloha.
Melinda Tritsch and Freckles
Owner Melinda Tritsch has had a love affair with animals since childhood, and is completely in her element here. During the Grand Opening several of her clients dropped by to help celebrate. Her business neighbors also joined in on the festivities: Fox’s Pizza Den provided pizza for the celebration – including Hawaiian pizza to go with the Aloha theme – as well as putting up flags to help draw attention. Melinda explained that she came up with the name for her shop because she wanted something that gave a feeling of relaxation, and she couldn’t think of any place more relaxing than Hawaii. From what I could see, the pets who come to Aloha are in for some serious pampering.
