Premier Pet Supply, based in Beverly Hills, Michigan, announced the opening of the first full-service pet supply store in downtown Detroit this summer. The launch will take place on the first floor of the new City Club Apartments CBD Detroit.
Premier Pet Supply President and CEO Michael Palmer made the announcement. “It’s a proud day for me, my family, my partners and the entire Premier Pet Supply family,” Palmer said. “For many years my grandfather owned and operated Hamway Market, a neighborhood grocery store in Detroit near Olympia Stadium. His store burned down during the 1967 riots and he never rebuilt it. heart. He loved his store, his customers, his neighbors and his community. More than 50 years later, I am bringing my family business back to town. It is very rewarding.
The store will offer food, supplements, pet care, toys and other items. The store plans to have more than 25 brands from Michigan-based companies. There will also be a do-it-yourself dog wash and a delivery service is being considered.
Premier Pet Supply has been involved in neighborhood and statewide pet advocacy programs since its inception in 1992. They conduct daily cat adoptions through the Michigan Humane Society and weekly pet adoptions on its premises. The company also visits more than 100 classrooms and organizations each year to talk about animal advocacy, care, welfare and compassion, while working with Leader Dogs for the Blind.
City Club Apartments CEO Jonathan Holtzman, a longtime Premier Pet Supply customer, approached Palmer five years ago and told him he was going to build apartments and penthouses in downtown Detroit and that he wanted Palmer on it. Palmer and Holtzman plan to host events, support local dog parks and rescue efforts to use their talents and resources to make a difference in the city.
