On Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Patrick Murphy, along with officials fromn the city’s Office of Economic Development, Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce, and Merrimack Valley Small Business Center joined sisters Deb Chicarello and Karen Philips at the Grand opening of their pet bakery/boutique Pawsitive Thoughts at the corner of Central and Jackson Streets.
This is their second location. The first is on Boston Road in Billerica. They bake homemade dog treats (aka “pawstries”) made from all natural ingredients and loved by their taste testers, Deb’s dog Nike and Karen’s dog Chloe.
They also carry a variety of pet food products, toys, and apparel. For more information visit http://www.pawsitive thoughts.com.
Mayor Patrick Murphy presented the sisters with the following citation:
Be it hereby known to all that
the City of Lowell in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
and its owners
DEB CHICARELLO AND KAREN PHILIPS (and Nike and Chloe)
to its location at 219 Central St .
The City is honored that Deb and Karen have chosen to open a store in Downtown Lowell where all of our furry friends can stop in for toys, apparel, pawstries, or just to chew the elk antlers and make new friends.
We wish them many years of helping to keep our canine and feline citizens healthy and happy, while making downtown Lowell a more friendly and fun place to live, work and shop.
The entire City of Lowell extends its deepest wishes to Pawsitive Thoughts for many years of success.
