New pet store opens in Hailey

A new pet store has opened in Hailey with an emphasis on American-made food, treats and toys.

Kate Nixon, owner of the Baldy Biscuit Co., opened her new store, 5B Paws ’n’ Claws, this week. Nixon said she has always wanted to expand from her biscuit business into a full-scale retail outlet.

“I’ve wanted to do a pet store forever,” she said. “All of our foods and treats are 100 percent American.”

Nixon said she sells two brands that valley pet owners might have a hard time finding elsewhere—Blue Buffalo pet food and Dr. Harvey’s Health Formulations, which was developed by a veterinarian in New Jersey. The store also features a number of pet beds and toys that are made in Montana. 

5B Paws ’n’ Claws is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 616 S. Main St. in Hailey, next to the Dollhouse.
