L&B Pet Market has shared exclusively with The Hoboken Girl that it plans to open a second pet shop in Hoboken. The family-owned store based in Montclair is a haven for health-conscious pet owners and will be bringing another locally-owned pet shop to the Mile Square. L&B Pet Market is located at 15 South Fullerton Avenue in Montclair and is now expanding to Hoboken, as its owner is a Hoboken resident. Read on to learn more about L&B Pet Market coming to 155 4th Street in Hoboken.
The Journey to Hoboken
L&B Pet Market is a pet store owned by Mike D’Elia and his recently-retired mom. They opened L&B at 15 Fullerton Avenue in Montclair about four years ago. Now, the family-owned business is taking its chances on a second L&B Pet Market at 155 4th Street in Hoboken. The space comes with a bit of a surprise change of businesses — Erica Li, a beloved groomer in town, is said to be moving from the space (to a new location TBD). Erica posted on the Hoboken NJ Dog Lovers group on Thursday, February 8th, noting that she was looking for a new space as she had been given notice by her landlord to relocate in two to three months.
We spoke with both Erica and L&B Pets regarding the situation, and L&B shared that the landlord had shown them the space several months back, as it was up for lease, and they signed the agreement this week. The landlord is not affiliated with the new pet shop, according to L&B’s owners.
About L&B + What to Expect
L&B Pet Market carries high-quality food products that cater to pet’s specific dietary needs. Products currently at its Montclair store include raw, frozen, freeze-dried, and canned food, as well as kibble and single-ingredient treats. Some specific products include goat milk, wild-caught salmon dry goods and canned food, bone broth for dogs and cats, and farm-raised kibble for rabbits.
Alongside its product offerings, the market is popular for its family-owned vibe, organizing regular events for the community, and fostering a sense of engagement among pets and owners.
