An independent pet accessory brand is set to open its first shop in Harrogate later this month.
Peach and Pooch creates a range of pet products, with each piece designed and handmade by local resident, Emily Ong, who makes all products from her home studio in Harrogate.
Ong creates a range of items, including collars and leads, as well as birthday bandanas and personalised portraits.
According to the Harrogate Informer, the first bricks-and-mortar shop will now open on 25 July.
Ong first launched Peach and Pooch in 2017, and has spent the last three years building the business up online.
Ong said: “It has been a huge challenge to embark on a new adventure under the cloud of Covid-19, especially as an independent business that began life in my spare room.
“However, I know that the people of Harrogate are passionate about their pets, and at a time where we are all making more effort to support small businesses and shop locally, I hope that our little independent can provide some positivity for residents and their furry friends.”
She added: “We signed the lease on our shop right before lockdown hit, so needless to say the journey to opening has been a bit of a rollercoaster.
“However, Peach and Pooch was born from passion and I’m a massive believer in if you don’t try, you don’t know. I’m hoping we’ll and on our paws and provide a unique and fun service for Harrogate.”
