Austin’s Pet Supplies plans ribbon cutting, giveway

To celebrate a successful first six months in business, Austin’s Pet Supplies is planning a ribbon cutting with the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 27, along with giving away free chances to win a basket of customers’ favorite products and items valued at $250.

Austin’s Pet Supplies opened its doors on April 6 in downtown Ceredo with a mission to supply healthy, high-quality pet foods and treats close to home. Their following has grown to include customers from throughout the Tri-State area and their products have changed according to customers’ wants and needs.

“We couldn’t have done this without support from our customers,” said Brandon Austin, co-owner of Austin’s Pet Supplies. “We hope they will come and help us celebrate the past six months.”

Austin’s Pet Supplies recently extended business hours to accommodate customers’ needs. Their hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and the store will be closed on Sundays. The store also offers free local delivery, grooming services, and self-bathing facilities complete with shampoo, towels and dryers.

Austin’s Pet Supplies is a pet supply store based in Ceredo, West Virginia, that offers high-quality pet foods, treats, toys and accessories. Products, specials, and information can be found at and follow them on Facebook at @austinspetsupplies. Austin’s Pet Supplies – Your Partners in Pethood!
