The 29th of June is a very important date in Loyal Biscuit Co. history. This year on the 29th, the LBC as a whole will turn 7, the Rockland LBC will be celebrating 5 years in its current home on Rockland Main St, and the Belfast LBC will be turning 3!
At a time like this, it’s always fun to look back and reflect on how far the LBC has come. We’ve all met countless furry faces, made friends with regulars, celebrated when new dogs or cats were adopted, and shed tears when those we’ve grown to love passed on.
Just this year:
- The Rockland store celebrated its 100th shelter cat adoption
- We hosted our 10th Pints for Paws and raised $2,500 for the PMHSKC (over $16,500 raised in the last three years!)
- With combined efforts of the customers in all three stores rounding up their purchases, we were able to donate 10 pet oxygen masks to the Maine POM Project
- We were informed that we are one of the top three finalists in Pet Age Magazine’s 2014 “Retailer of the Year” award (the announcement of the bronze, silver, and gold winners will be announced in their August issue)
- Fidelis Biscuit Co. was named Best Maine Pet Product for the second year in a row by the readers of Downeast Dog News
- We added three new staff members, Danielle, Kay, and Matt
But the big news of this year? The LBC is coming to Waterville! Work has already started on our fourth location on Main St in Waterville with a tentative opening date of July 28th. We are all looking so forward to the Waterville store opening and getting to know a whole new bunch of people and their pets!
In celebration of these milestones, Sunday the 29th will be $3 dog wash day! All self-serve dog washes in our Rockland and Belfast stores (Camden is not open on Sundays) will be only $3. So if you’ve got a dog in desperate need of a bath, make sure you stop by on the 29th to help the LBC celebrate its birthday!
Until next time, Loyal fans!
