Pet food store Beastly Bite, on Seventh between Carroll and Garfield, has closed. The store's been packed up, the phone line's disconnected, and there's a "For Rent" sign in the window.
While pricey, the store was well-stocked and had a loyal following. Most Yelp reviewers agreed, however, that service was indifferent at best and that the products sold there could be purchased far more cheaply elsewhere, driving customers to the giant Petco that's only a couple blocks away. There are two other locations of Beastly Bite, both on Court Street.
One distressing thing that I noticed while peeking in through the windows on Sunday: a lone cat was in the locked-up store, by itself. Hopefully it hasn't just been abandoned in there, and that someone has plans to come back for it!
