Time to feature another one of our amazing Yamnuska 2022 calendar sponsors! Let’s learn a little bit more about another great Calgary small business – Bon A-Pet-Treat! Pet Store & Bakery! (I don’t know if she remembers this, but I actually met owner, Emily, about 16 years ago or so when I used to manage the Inglewood Tail Blazers in Calgary.)
Bon A-Pet-Treat! Pet Store & Bakery is a 100% Canadian owned and operated business that specializes in all natural pet food, supplements, toys, and more! But their claim to fame is their exclusively handmade cakes, cookies, and ice cream that they make in-store.
All of Bon A-Pet-Treat!’s freshly baked goods are made from scratch and are completely wheat, corn, and soy free. They use only high quality, unprocessed, human-grade ingredients that are without artificial flavours and preservatives and have been approved by Veterinarians.
Like the owners, Bon A-Pet-Treat! was born in Calgary, Alberta, and their story began in 2006 when they started baking treats in their home as an all natural alternative for their pets. They decided to share their discovery with others and after receiving positive reviews at the local Lilac Festival, they set up shop several months later at the Calgary Farmers’ Market, where they quickly became a popular and unique destination.
In 2008, in order to keep up with demand, they decided to move their baking from the home to their flagship retail location in northwest Montgomery (Bowness). Open daily, this gave them the ability to compliment their cakes and biscuits with a wide selection of all natural foods, toys, supplements and more. Plus, it gave them the opportunity to see their happy customers first hand!
In 2019, they expanded and opened their second retail location in Britannia. This allowed them to introduce beds, accessories, carriers and more! They’ve even introduced Barkuterie boards! (as seen in these scrumptious photos!)
Bon A-Pet-Treat would like to thank their incredible team for helping them through some tough times this past year+. Without their dedication and resilience, they wouldn’t be here today. They’d also like to acknowledge the store managers at the Bowness location: cats, Molly and Elroy.
Molly crossed over the rainbow bridge last week and we’re sending everyone who’s feeling the loss our condolences.
