Shop Local – Support Smiley’s Pet Pad This Saturday

I have been wanting to write something about Smiley’s Pet Pad for awhile – Smiley’s has been a Pittsburgh institution with quite a story. The Shadyside Action Coalition is organizing a Cash Mob for Smiley’s Pet Pad this Saturday – June 30, 2012.

The Post-Gazette wrote a lovely story on this shop when the ownership changed a few years ago – it might have been more than a few years ago – if anyone has that story or a link to it – I would love to include it here as well.


Lindsay has been writing about Pittsburgh since 2005. She likes pretzels from the Pretzel Shop on Carson St., used book stores, her rollerblades and she hopes to learn to skateboard someday soon.
