Billing themselves as “everything dog,” Zak & Zoe is moving into the space formerly occupied by the consignment portion of Rising Stars children’s store on the corner of Greenwood Avenue and NW 74th St.
A clerk at Rising Stars told us that an increase in rent led them to give up that space, so they moved consignment items into the regular space and rearranged everything. They still have their great playroom with the incredible tree house and a rocking chair for tired parents or nursing moms.
Zak & Zoe has paper over all the windows so we can’t tell you what it will look like, but they are advertising for a dog lover to work part-time: firstname.lastname@example.org. Their website says the dog boutique will be a place “where dog lovers can find a wide selection of unique dog-themed art, gifts, books and premium quality dog foods and supplies.”
UPDATE: The owners of Zak & Zoe (who also own the dog-walking service Rain City Pets and live nearby in Ballard) tell us they’re hoping to open the first week or two of August, with a Grand Opening in September. They will carry high-end dog foods such as Ziwi Peak, Pet Curean and Evo Innova, and they’ll have a free delivery service. They’ll also have a Kitty Korner with food, treats, designer litter boxes and scratching posts, plus a Kids Korner with books and toys.
