Tampa (Midtown), Fla. – June 16, 2022 – Pets are an important and beloved part of the family, which is why we invest so heavily in their care and well-being. According to the American Pet Products Association, in 2021 pet parents in the US spent almost $124 billion on their pets. Dogs top the list of fur-kids, at 69 million US households, followed by cats at 45 million.
Royal Pets Market & Resort Plus Veterinary Center is celebrating its urban flagship state-of-the-art center that serves pet parents and their pets’ needs – including a market, pet resort, salon & spa, doggie daycare, and full-service veterinary center – seven days a week, all under one roof. Royal Pets is located at 1102 North Himes Avenue, with parking available in Midtown parking garages off Himes & Cypress.
“Our commitment is to always provide the best care and advice to our pet parents, so their pets live healthy and happy lives. At Royal Pets every pet is a part of our family and always treated like royalty,” said Denise Wolin, CEO & President. “We have everything under one roof for your pet, from our state-of-the-art Veterinary Hospitals, 5-star Pet Hotel, Salon & Spa and of course our Market with our knowledgeable pet experts to help with all of your pets’ needs.” Wolin is an industry veteran who oversaw nearly 1,200 stores as vice president of PetSmart before founding her first Royal Pets right here in the Tampa Bay Area.
The festivities begin with a formal ribbon cutting at 11:00 am Friday, hosted by the South Tampa Chamber of Commerce and featuring Royal Pets CEO Denise Wolin, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Bryan McGoldrick, Tampa City Councilman Guido Maniscalco, and Midtown Tampa General Manager Christina Harden. Visitors with their pets will enjoy an afternoon of pet caricatures in the Midtown common area.
The Grand Opening Carnival runs from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 18 & 19 and will feature pet caricatures, a bounce house (for the two-legged kids), food trucks, a balloon artist, free “PAWdicures” and lots of games and activities for the four-legged kids. Attendees having their Royal Passport stamped in the store will receive FREE Royal Rewards including microchip ($49.95 value), first-time vet visit ($68 value), gift bag ($25 value) and “barkery treat.” Puppies and dogs will be available for adoption, and 100% of the proceeds from an event raffle will be sent to Ukraine, to aid Ukrainian dogs in need.

THE ROYAL EXPERIENCE
Royal Pets does business in a manner consistent with its name, treating pet parents and their fur-kids like royalty. We’ve branded the look of our stores with a unique, old world feel and themed signage inside and out. When driving up to the store, pet parents immediately see the day care and a park where dogs play together on artificial grass. Pet parents are always amazed when entering the store for the first time, as the look and feel entices them to travel throughout and experience each department. Pet parents are greeted by friendly and knowledgeable associates who are trained and certified to serve their needs. Further inside the market, they will see a large indoor dog park and find a helpful, highly educated team eager to assist them with all their pets’ needs, from our pet experts helping pet parents with nutrition and pet advice, making reservations for overnight stays, doggie day care, grooming and of course our full-service veterinary hospital with doctors on-site 7 days a week. It is like a 5-Star resort in which any one of us would love to stay.
