Shed, Bath & Beyond Grooming

Four-legged friends often feel more like family, and for 10 years, the team at Shed, Bath & Beyond has provided grooming services to help pet parents treat them that way. In addition to pampering animal clients with pawdicures, massage baths, teeth cleanings, and other innovative services, staff members coach owners on how to maintain looks and accommodate for seasonal changes. Manager Jen Collings says fall allergies, longer coats, cold-resistant fleas, and dry skin are all common this time of year.

“The standards I set for my stylists are very high,” Collings says. “Our clients love our consistency, attention to detail, professionalism, and the long-term experience of each of our stylists.”

Dogwood Vintiques

Don’t let the size of its small storefront fool you: situated in an old mattress factory on Missouri Boulevard, Dogwood Vintiques holds over 20,000 square feet of vintage goods, antiques, crafts, clothing, and more from a range of area sellers. In one space, shoppers can find everything from heirloom furnishings to childhood toys of yesteryear. Under the new ownership of Cheri and Scott Willett, the store, which is home to more than 150 vendors, recently had a makeover and now also features a room filled with Missouri-made food and gifts.

“There’s something here for everyone and you just might find something you didn’t know you needed,” Cheri says. “It’s the ultimate in shopping local!”

Red Wheel Bike Shop

With its proximity to the Katy Trail and its designation as a bicycle-friendly community, Jefferson City brings in its fair share of riders. As they cross the bridge, Red Wheel Bike Shop is ready to greet them. The store has been serving bikers since 2003 and relocated to its current Main Street location in 2015. There, owner Nick Smith provides tune-ups, repairs, gear, snacks, and even rental rides. The crew is also well-versed in regional trails, road routes, and special events, like local moonlight rides.

“My wife, Jessica, and I are passionate about cycling, and we enjoy sharing that with the Jefferson City community,” Smith says.
