At the end of August Powerball announced the winners of their $1 million dollar jackpot as four employees of Ridgewood's Garden State Barkery, a dog grooming salon in New Jersey. These four lucky ladies bought the winning Quick Pick ticket from local convenience store “Maggie’s,” after finishing a long days work, which is in the same strip mall as the salon. The owner of Maggie’s felt “fortunate and lucky” to sell the winning ticket to familiar faces from the community.
In addition to being Powerball winners, Ridgewood Garden State Barkery has a 5-star rating on Facebook and 5/5 rating on Google, evidence of their commitment to high-quality grooming and service. They also love to post cute photos of their clientele on their Facebook page and pull out all the stops to celebrate dog-holidays!
Isle of Dogs was beyond thrilled to hear that these worthy dog-loving ladies won this money and wanted to give them a shout out! Isle of Dogs loves and respects dog groomers - thank you for committing your life to the wellness of dogs! Congrats Alice, Kimberly Kristie and Laura!
