New Business Spotlight: The Filling Station Pet Supplies

By Laura Amiton08 The Filling Station

We are pleased to announce the opening of The Filling Station Pet Supplies.

TFS Pets is the first of its kind, being the only pet supply store in the nation to offer a drive-thru experience for the pet owner.

In addition to the drive-thru, The Filling Station offers 1,800 square feet of retail space designed to give pet owners a unique shopping experience. “We created a fun, sophisticated store that has some levels of interaction for both the pet owner and the pets coming in” says owner, Laura Amiton. For example, there is a wall of dry cat and dog food samples called the Taster Wall. Here the pet owners can take samples for their pets. The display tables were designed to create safe-havens for dogs to lie underneath and chew on toys while their owners get help with nutrition, behavior and product questions.

“It was important to me to look at all the possible ways pet owners shop and design a store around what they said was missing. Pet owners want the best products they can find, they want excellent customer service, and they desire a more convenient experience near where they work and live”.

The Tigard location was carefully chosen. The space is located on the corner of a small strip-mall surrounded by many small, local businesses such as Shiraz and Jet Set Coffee. “I looked for months with a leasing agent before finding the needle in the haystack” says Amiton.

The product mix at The Filling Station is of all natural foods and supplies. “We know that pet owners want to do right by their pets. This is why only natural foods with an emphasis of local leashes, collars, beds and treats are found here”, says Amiton.
