It’s the Dog Days! Capital Region Mall Welcomes Dogs to Shop Too
A local mall is allowing your furry friend to shop along with you. Not only will they be allowed inside certain stores, but there will be dog-friendly events too!
This Mall Has Allowed Dogs Inside Before-Now They Can Shop!
Since 2018, you were allowed to have your dog inside the mall's common area. Colonie Center is now inviting dog owners to come with their leashed dogs shopping. According to the Colonie Center website, all well-behaved dogs, of all breeds are welcome. There are about thirty stores that are participating in allowing dogs inside their establishments. Dogs will not be allowed in the Play Park or the Food Court. There are clean-up stations throughout Colonie Center.
There will be storefront stickers on each of the stores that allow leashed dogs with their owners. This way you will know which are dog-friendly.
What Other Pet-Friendly Events Will Be Held?
There will be dog-centered events at Colonie Center too. There will be a "yappy hour paint and sip". National Pet Appreciation Week is from June 5th through June 11th. To kick it off, Colonie Center will host a "Woofs and Wags Pup-Up" shop on Saturday, June 4th. There will be vendors throughout the mall with caricature drawings, treat bags, and more. Plus there will be a fundraiser for the Mohawk Humane Society where you have a chance of winning a $100 Colonie Center gift card.
According to mall management,
Retailers decided independently if they were able to accommodate dogs in their stores. We are incredibly excited about this expansion and look forward to our future dog-friendly events and happenings.
Some of the stores participating are LL Bean, Nordstrom Rack, Famous Footwear, Barnes and Noble, Children's Place, Ulta Beauty, and more. To see the complete list click HERE.
