Today we’d like to introduce you to Christina LaCreta.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Christina. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I opened my pet Grooming shop 30 years ago. With my love of animals, I really wanted to use my creative experience and own my own business who knew it would last this long considering I opened it when I was 20 years old!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was never a smooth road! Between educating the customers on how to take care of the animals or trying to hire groomers that will show up and actually do the job through the years I’ve had my ups and downs!
Happy Tails – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My company is a very small salon. The Andover clients are very welcoming to small business they support the community. We specialize in small breed haircuts. I am most proud of being a quiet salon. When you walk in, people always ask are their dogs in here because we try to have a quiet and a friendly environment. I think the fact that I have been in business for a long time people respect it and are impressed when they come in.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment has been reaching my 30th year! I have worked hard through the years and I finally found two part-time groomers that are wonderful they love the dogs and they do a professional job!
