A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM STEPHANIE PETERS

marmalade

Hello!

My name is Stephanie Peters, I stopped by both store locations recently and left a brochure for my new dog training and humane education business, Plucky Paws, LLC.  I am based in Ames but offer services and programs in Ankeny and the surrounding areas as well.  My Master’s is in theatre education, and I have a dozen years of experience working with kids in a variety of settings.  As a humane educator, I now use the arts to teach kids about dog related topics like responsible pet ownership and dog bite prevention.  I have a little therapy dog named Marmalade (www.marmaladetherapydog.com), and I am looking for kid businesses to partner with to offer my early childhood story time Tail Waggin’ Tales as a promotional event for Plucky Paws.  Your customers would attend a free 30-minute story time with Marmalade, and I would also have material and information available about my training services and educational programs.  It would be a great fit for your location.  Alternatively, I can hold an hour-long drop in event where kids and parents can meet with the therapy dog individually on a more informal basis, with an in-store scavenger hunt activity and prizes for kids.  I really love the store and all you have to offer!  Please email or call me if you are interested in setting up a promotional event at your stores this spring.

Thanks,
Stephanie Peters

Latest Blog Feature

When shopping at local businesses like Duck Worth Wearing and The Loft, you’ll find a few themes worth noting. The stores are not only a place for shoppers to save money, they are a thriving place of employment, and to top it all off, sustainably designed. These consignment shops were born from the laughter and love of one family out to 40,000 people who have visited The Loft and Duck Worth Wearing – Ames and Duck Worth Wearing – Ankeny since its first store’s opening  in 2000.

We made a short video to take you down memory lane up to the present day where we have opened yet another location in the Ankeny Community.

See more pictures and take a virtual tour of all of our stores here!
