Three pet stores and eight honorable mentions have been chosen “America’s Coolest” by Pets+, “The Magazine for the America’s Pet Pros,” in its inaugural contest.
The America’s Coolest Stores Contest highlights the best examples of independent pet businesses throughout the United States. They are judged by a panel of retail experts on the basis of busi- ness practices, history, online presence, traditional advertising, interior decor and curb appeal.
Co-Owner of Bubbly Paws, Keith Miller commented “We have worked so hard with our 3 (soon to be 4) stores to create a unique look and feel that has never been done before. We did not come in 1st place, we are honored to be on a list with so many other great businesses, and I consider that a huge win!”
Bubbly Paws opened their first store in St Louis Park, MN in 2011 and has 2 more locations in St. Paul and Maple Grove. The 4th store in Minneapolis is slated to open in October. Bubbly Paws offers the popular self-service dog wash, but also has full time groomers on hand to make your pooch look and feel their best.
Co-Owner of Bubbly Paws, Patrycia Miller commented “One thing that makes us unique is the bright and clean setting where customers are excited to bathe their dog. Our groomers go the extra mile of offer a low stress setting while pampering each pooch.”

“We feel privileged to bring our readers the best of the best in our industry,” said Ralf Kircher, Pets+ editor-in-chief. “Winning stores often have amazing product lineups and are impressive to look at. But a store wouldn’t really fit our ‘cool’ criteria if it weren’t for such aspects as innova- tive marketing, creative retail environment and a unique work culture.”
