Only Natural Pet expands its presence in Colorado with the opening of its second store in Aspen

Second Flagship Store Joins Boulder Location; Features Paleo-Inspired, Natural Pet Food, Treats, Supplements, Chews and More for Dogs and Cats

BOULDER and ASPEN, 2016-Dec-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — One of the nation’s leading natural pet lifestyle brands, Only Natural Pet, announced today (Dec. 12, 2016) it is expanding its retail presence in its home state of Colorado with the official grand opening of its second flagship store on Dec. 17 in Aspen. This popular skiing and outdoor recreation community is well-suited for an Only Natural Pet store because the residents, visitors and pets reflect and enjoy the healthy natural lifestyle that is core to the brand.

The Boulder, Colo.-based natural pet food brand said it will open the new 2,000-square-foot Only Natural Pet store on the Cooper Avenue pedestrian mall in the central retail and entertainment district of Aspen. Grand opening events will be held Dec. 17 and 18, just in time for the height of the holiday ski season. The new store will feature a comprehensive collection of Only Natural Pet products including holistic, paleo-inspired natural foods featuring wholesome high-protein recipes that are dehydrated, freeze-dried and air-dried to offer healthy diets that bring dogs and cats back to their ancestral wolf and wildcat roots.

The Aspen store will carry a variety of Only Natural Pet products including pet food, treats, chews, vitamins, supplements and other pet solutions, as well as additional brands that share its natural brand philosophy including home-grown Colo.-based brands such as Hoot & Co. and Down Dog Snacks. The new store will also carry eco-chic gift products like collars, leashes, clothing and toys.

“We are excited to have a retail space that will introduce Only Natural Pet to pet parents in the Aspen area and to serve as a convenient retail option for locals already loyal to the brand,” said Marty Grosjean, founder and CEO of Only Natural Pet. “Aspen was our top choice for our second flagship store as the city’s community of passionate pet owners who seek the natural, wholesome lifestyle for themselves and their pets is a great fit for the Only Natural Pet brand.”
