Each week, The Columbian offers a brief snapshot of an interesting Clark County business. Send ideas to Mary Ricks: firstname.lastname@example.org; fax 360-735-4598; phone 360-735-4550.
Business name: All Natural Pet Supply.
Owners: Robert and Mary Keliikoa.
Address: 10501 N.E. Highway 99, Suite 39.
What the business does: The store sells all-natural pet foods — including raw and dry options — as well as treats, toys, beds, collars and other supplies for dogs and cats.
How has the economy affected your business: Mary Keliikoa said business has remained steady.
Greatest challenge: Keliikoa said keeping educated with the changing area of nutrition and keeping the store looking fresh with new but useful items is a challenge. Looking for good-quality and highly durable dog toys is always on the to-do list.
What’s ahead: Keliikoa and her husband have decided to expand with a second store that will be closer to their customers in east Vancouver. It will open at 3425 S.E. 192nd Ave., Suite 108, on Dec. 9.
Year established in Clark County: 2000.
