It took a little while longer than it seemed like it would
, but I have confirmed with my own eyes that the Banfield Pet Hospital
on Tingey Street east of 4th has finally opened its doors.
I inquired within (ignoring the bewildered look of the nice lady at the front desk when I explained that I was merely the "neighborhood blogger" requesting information), and apparently they are dubbing this a soft opening, so they are not offering the full slate of care just yet.
In the coming weeks--perhaps in late July--there will be an official Grand Opening.
Banfield will be open seven days a week, from 9 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday, and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday.
With the spaces at Twelve12
and the Boilermaker Shops
all but filled, those desperately hungry for news of more retail at the Yards
will probably start casting glances toward Forest City's next delivery, the 325-unit Arris
apartment building and its 20,000 square feet of ground-floor space (though there's been no announcements as yet, and the building is still a number of months away from completion).
