“It’s great for the building and great for the neighborhood,” she told The Commercial Observer.  “It’s on a block where we already put in a lot of fashion tenants. It’s the missing use. “

Other stores on the block that have been brought into that stretch of block-front by Ms. Consolo and Mr. Aquino include Kusmi Tea, Variazioni, and Elijah Peters Optique.

Biscuits & Bath offers services like day care and dog walking for any kind of pooch. The store also provides a lifestyle plan for dogs that focuses on “total wellness,” from exercise and health to behavior and grooming maintenance, according to its website.
