Business catering to animals opens downtown
Monica Gee hopes dogs and cats will be frequenting her new downtown Tonganoxie business.
The longtime pet groomer opened Wizard of Paws on Nov. 15 at 612 E. Fourth St. in the former Merge Nutrition building.
Gee has been in the pet grooming business for 20 years, but said she thought it was time to make the transition from an in-home business to a storefront location.
“I like the downtown location and the traffic,” Gee said. “That’s what I like is the downtown feel.
“And everybody needs their dog groomed.”
Wizard of Paws offers basic full grooming services and baths.
The past 10 years Gee’s in-home business was known as From Bows to Toes. A registered certified member of the National Dog Groomers Association, Gee said she offers dog and cat grooming by appointment Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Before opening From Bows to Toes, Gee worked for other grooming businesses for roughly 10 years.
