Next door to Sweeties Downeast candy shop in Eastport is owner Lisa Stephen’s newest enterprise: Sweeties Dog-O-Rama, a dog-grooming boutique, decorated with a curious collection of canine-inspired fine art. The bright gallery-meets-grooming shop is proof that downtown Eastport is not geared just for tourists. This year-round business is already booked out for over a month.
Already a savvy business owner, Lisa has benefited from CEI assistance in her new venture, which involved completing a lengthy dog grooming certification in nearby Canada and then renovating and outfitting her state-of-the-art dog grooming spa.
“I love to take the time to make each dog feel comfortable and pampered, then go back home looking terrific.” -Lisa Stephen, owner
Lisa also provides a place to park your pet for an hour or two while you go on a whale watch or visit a restaurant.
