Hi all! My family and I are considering purchasing a pet salon for sale in Mooresville. We are curious about certain things and have a few questions.
1.) How is the economy in Mooresville? Did it take a dive this year?
2.) How many in this forum use/have used a pet salon/grooming shop?
3.) Are there lots of pet owning homes in Mooresville and surrounding areas?
4.) Does Mooresville being NASCARs hometown help or hinder the economy?
5.) Here in Jacksonville, FL, there is a grooming shop on every corner,resulting in over saturation.Do you see a shop on every corner or are they spread far apart?
6.) Have any shops/salons shut down this year that you know of?

I know that some of you can't answer all of my questions but if you would just give me some input,I would appreciate it. we are exploring every avenue and just wanting to do some serious research before we make such a life changing decision. Thanks for your help

Which shop is it that you're looking to purchase? Knowing it's location might help in getting you some answers.

I noticed your post has not received many responses so I will do my best to give you some input. I personally do not live in Mooresville but I am from Charlotte and live close in near downtown. Within 1 mile of my neighborhood there are 3 dog grooming businesses. The good news is I have yet to see any of these go under. My wife and I use to use one of them pretty often but lately we have cut back due of course to economics. There currently are tons of pet businesses near us. Everything from salons to even a dog bar. LOL The market may be a little saturated right now. The service of pet grooming may be considered by some to be more of a luxury right now. Similar to that of a $4.00 latte from (well you know where). Anyways good luck with the business. I hope it works out for you...

The dog bar is awesome! It's a real bar for dogs. The area is fenced in and all the dogs pretty much run free. Sometimes it gets a little overwhelming. On a good night I have seen probably around 25-30 dogs up there. One problem is no ones beer is safe on the tables. It is always exciting. Sometimes they will have Carolina Panther parties on Sundays. The owner actually also owns one of the larger pet boarding facilities in Charlotte. Thier site is www.dogbarnoda.com If you ever move it is worth the trip to come down from Mooresville.

Carolina Paw Prints on Main St or River Hwy? I actually googled it & found 3 locations with the same name, but can't tell if they're all current or not.
