A few items related to her professional pet grooming services was the extent of retail items Dana Duscher expected to sell when she moved her Dana’s Dog Spa to downtown Hutchinson in January.
But since then, customers have increasingly asked her to carry more products so help them limit the number of stops they make for pet supplies, such as food. The recent closing of the Pet Hutch in the Plaza 15 Mall accelerated her decision to expand and remodel her shop at 126 Main St. S.
“I was able to increase my grooming space so I can better accommodate the bigger dogs, and added the retail space to meet my customers’ needs in one place,” Duscher said. “If we don’t have it, tell us and we can get it.”
