UPDATED — Less than five years after opening his first All Paws Pet Center, Paul Baumann is opening his third.
The new store will be in Occidental Management’s Spring Creek shopping center at Madison and Rock Road in Derby.
“There was definitely a need for our store,” Baumann says.
The 4,800-square-foot store will be slightly smaller than his west-side store, which is in 5,200 square feet at 13th and Maize, and slightly larger than his 4,500-square-foot east-side store in the Tallgrass Shopping Center at 21st and Rock Road.
The Derby store will be in the former Nifty Fifty space.
Occidental’s Stephanie Wiens handled the deal.
Baumann says Derby has always been in his plans, but now is the right time in part because he has the core staff needed for all three sites, which he says means that each store can offer great customer service.
If he couldn’t guarantee that, Baumann says, he wouldn’t do it.
Like his other sites, Baumann’s new store will offer dog and cat supplies, such as food, toys, treats, bedding and apparel. There also will be two self-serve dog washes.
Look for the store to open the first week of September.
So will that be it on new sites?
“You never know.”
