Hot Shop: Bodega Pets

May 4, 2022

Central Richmond, B.C., has welcomed a boutique-style neighbourhood pet grocer that does things a little di-fur-ently.

Inspired by New York City’s corner-store (i.e., bodega) cat culture, Bodega Pets Foods & Supply recreates the same nostalgic and friendly neighbourhood vibe, with a modern twist. Cruise the convenient store-style aisles and flashy glass freezers for premium foods, treats and accessories by tried-and-true makers like RC Pets and Canada Pooch. Bodega Pets has also partnered with smaller, local brands Nose and Hearts (vegan-leather leashes and collars), Pawperty Goods (“pawttery made with love”), Shades of Gray (Indigenous pet treats) and others.

Décor wise, a round logo lightbox brings big ’90s energy and, practically, a designated outdoor doggie bathroom provides relief for pets (and their concerned owners!). —Louisa Chan
