After 28 years of serving Prairie Village, the Land of Paws pet store at Corinth Square is officially closed, and the company says it is shifting its operations to its remaining store in southern Leawood.
What happened? One of the shop’s longtime owners retired, according to a July Facebook Post.
A sign on the door at Land of Paws at 4021 Somerset Drive notifies customers that the store is closed.
It’s website, which is under construction, also notes the Corinth Square location’s closure.
The Facebook post says the Corinth Square location merged with the Deer Creek location in Leawood off W. 135th Street.
What they said: “We are closing our Corinth Square location,” the current Land of Paws website reads. “Thank you for your loyalty and the honor of being your neighborhood pet boutique and grooming salon for the past 28 years. We look forward to continuing to serve you at our Deer Creek location and on our new website launching soon!”
Land of Paws stays open in Leawood
The pet store is maintaining its Leawood location, despite closing up shop in Prairie Village.
Land of Paws loyalists can still get their pet needs taken care of at the south location.
The address for the Land of Paws South location at Deer Creek is 6772 W. 135th Street.
This location is about a 20 minute drive away from the Corinth Square location.
