The busy holiday pet season is helping to spur on Bretta Farina’s puppy pet-collar growth plan, accelerated by hard-working women.
She’s just moved into a 2500 square foot space at 261 Meredian Drive in Grovetown across from the Wal-Mart near Gateway Square.
DC Lawrence Real Estate represented Farina’s Puddle Jumper business in the lease.
Farina will be opening part of the space as a retail store and using leftover space for production.
Farina’s husband is a military veteran and they moved to Augusta so he could accept a position with a contractor. Her store is an example of the family putting down roots in the CSRA.
Most of the collars on www.puddlejumperpups.com are $23.50 and are hand sewn, mostly by single mothers as part of Farina’s overall mission. According to the website, “Puddle Jumper Pups is made up of a team of experienced and dedicated women who create custom, handmade and fashionable dog collars, leashes, harnesses and accessories for our amazing and loyal customers!”
Products are also made using some of the most fashion-forward fabrics. Seasonal collections are released in the Spring, Summer and Fall of each year, as well as special holiday collections for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween and Christmas!
Collars can be custom monogrammed with colored, stainless and gold buckles.
