A new dog bakery and shop called Amelie’s Bark Shop is now open at 1544 E. Passyunk Ave. The shop, named after owner Jackie Starker’s almost eight-year-old dog, opened for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 29.
The shop carries Starker’s homemade dog treats made in-house at the shop and handmade and recycled dog and cat products, many of which are made locally in Philadelphia.
Starker first started selling dog treats online a few years ago under the name Pupcakes and decided to take her business to the next level by opening this shop and bakery.
Although it is the “Bark Shop,” they haven’t forgotten about your favorite felines. There are handmade cat toys, food and treats throughout the shop, as well.
As Starker continues to grow her business, she hopes to start displaying and selling more local artwork.
Amelie’s Bark Shop is open from 9 a.m. through 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. through 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. on Sundays. More information about Amelie’s Bark Shop can be found on the shop’s Facebook page.
