Shop Around the Corner: Time to pamper that pet of yours at Barker & Meowsky

Barker & Meowsky
1003 W. Armitage
Lincoln Park’s Armitage Avenue is home to a wide spectrum of shopping opportunities. Included is Barker & Meowsky, a high-end pet boutique offering everything from animal apparel to healthy baked treats and personal furniture for cats and dogs.
In a neighborhood that is already so focused on fashion and style, Barker & Meowsky introduced “pet couture” to the Lincoln Park shopping scene more than a decade ago. Just like other retail stores, Barker & Meowsky aims to meet seasonal fashion trends and apply them to the animal world. Featured products include a dining table for dogs, a vast array of plush toys, and pet beds made from organic cotton.
Many products, however, offer functionality in addition to style. For example, you can find an entire coat and jacket selection with weatherproof options to comfort pets (and their owners) through Chicago’s most biting winters.
Whether you’re browsing their pet-themed home decor or visiting the treat bakery with your pet, Barker & Meowsky has something for every pet owner looking to spoil the furriest member of their family. The boutique is run by cat and dog lovers alike, encouraging shoppers to include their pets in the very “human” world of fashion and style.
