It is depressing and discouraging.
Not closed quite yet, but preparing for closure is "Loving Pet Food" at 145 Smith Street, a small locally owned business that has served many pet owners in the neighborhood.
Currently, the merchandise in the store is marked down 50%.
Whether the closure is due to rising rent, or competition from a Petsmart, which opened just a few blocks away on Atlantic Avenue, or simply the result of people choosing to order online rather than to buy locally, it represents yet another loss for our community.
Will you miss Loving Pet Food? Where do you shop for your pet?
