A main business hub in downtown Harrisburg will soon attract four-legged patrons when a veteran-owned pet grooming salon opens in The Shops at Strawberry Square by the end of February.
Unleashed Grooming Company, a cosmetic dog and cat grooming salon, plans to open at 3 North Third Street, offering dog grooming services and related retail pet care items.
“I’m so excited to have the opportunity to bring dog and cat grooming services to the residents and employees of the downtown Harrisburg area,” said Alexandra Lauch, owner with 11 years’ experience as a groomer.
“I hope to be able to provide a unique experience for both customers and their pets. With a more social environment, dogs will be excited to come to Unleashed Grooming Company and owners will be happy knowing they are receiving quality care and services. I can’t wait to meet all the pets of downtown,” she said.
“Adding a pet groomer to the services that are already offered in the downtown makes this area even more attractive to the residents in this and the surrounding neighborhoods,” said Brad Jones, president and CEO of Harristown Enterprises, Inc., which owns Strawberry Square.
“Many of the residential tenants in our pet-friendly rental units have dogs and cats, so this makes living downtown even more appealing,” he said.
Strawberry Square is a mixed-use development which serves as the hub of Harrisburg’s downtown central business district. Jones said. Along with its neighbor 333 Market Street Tower, Strawberry Square is home to over one million square feet of offices, educational institutions, retail and medical space.
The facility includes an atrium, upscale apartments, retail shops, food court, daycare center and a variety of Commonwealth agency offices.
In addition, a second-floor, climate-controlled skywalk connects Strawberry Square to other downtown destinations.
