Paws Fins Pet Shop, First Federal open new retail locations at Island Village Shopping Center

One addition and one relocation are set to alter the business landscape at Island Village Shopping Center.

Urban Renaissance Group recently announced the grand opening of First Federal’s newest branch, as well as a new lease at a new, nearby location for island-based pet supplier Paws & Fins Pet Shop.

Located at 1050 Hildebrand Road, directly across from Plate & Pint, the new space for Paws & Fins, officials said, will meet the increasing demand for pet food and accessories in an expanded space.

First Federal has chosen for their new branch a spot directly adjacent to Westside Pizza.

“As a Bainbridge Island resident, I’m excited to welcome our newest tenants,” said Patrick Callahan, URG founder and chief executive officer. “Paws & Fins is a Bainbridge Island institution, and First Financial is an exceptional regional bank. Our focus at Island Village is to prioritize community-focused businesses that offer products and services residents need and value.”

Owned by Wiccan York, Paws & Fins, which has been in business on the island for more than 20 years, offers a selection of premium dog and cat foods, including frozen, freeze-dried and refrigerated options.

In its new retail location across from Plate and Pint and sharing a parking lot with Wells Fargo, Paws & Fins will also offer small animals, fish, reptiles as well as supplies and information on caring for pets.

The space is currently being upgraded, officials said, with construction expected to be completed by April or May.

“At Paws & Fins, we strive to ensure that island residents have the happiest, healthiest pets possible,” said York. “This new, expanded location is perfect for continuing to meet the needs of island residents, and we look forward to opening the doors to our new space and offering an expanded selection of products.”

Paws & Fins also joins First Federal, who opened their newest branch in the center in September last year.

The regional community bank offering personal and business banking, online banking, mortgage, commercial and personal lending is located on the west side of the complex in Building E.

“With core values centered on the community and customer service, we’re excited to have joined the Bainbridge Island community,” said Troy Wills, First Federal vice president. “Our innovative blend of technology and boutique banking is designed to help us develop full banking relationships with our customers.”
