According to Jolene Pasta, pet grooming is more of an artistic process than a mechanical one. The accomplished artist says she can sculpt any breed into a work of art.
The Hampshire resident recently opened the doors to Country Chic Dog & Cat Grooming, a pet grooming business she formerly ran out of her nearby home.
Those looking for the shop won’t have much trouble finding it, because the bright pink structure sits just one block off of Main Street in the middle of Hampshire’s downtown.
“I just love pink. When people see it, they know it has to be Jolene,” Pasta said. “From the outside, it looks like a funky Chicago art gallery. Everyone has been talking about it.”
Pasta opened the storefront on June 1, and since has been welcomed by the Hampshire Area Chamber of Commerce during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
