Hello, My name is Sue. I am the CEO at Pet Bazaar NC, and I was born and raised in Central Florida. I have always had a passion for animals and acrobats. They have both been a huge part of my life. After retiring from Cirque du Soleil & Disney World in 2011 I wanted to live on the coast, so my family and I moved to Wilmington, NC in search of dog friendly beaches and great seasonal weather.
Shortly after settling in, my golden retriever suddenly died of spleen cancer. He was only 3. It was heartbreaking, I wanted to surround myself with caring for animals....without all the morbid stuff that comes with working in a veterinarian's office.
In 2014, I launched Pet Bazaar NC out of my home and on July 10th 2017 my husband Jason CFO and I took this small business full scale and relocated Pet Bazaar NC to Carolina Beach! This family owned and operated business has grown and has plans to grow more and its all thanks to the loyal support of our community. Jason had a long career as a manager in the food service industry and left to run Pet Bazaar as a family operated business. All the pups adore Jason, he is like a second Dad to the staff pups that come to work daily. Over 2 years later the Pet Bazaar family consists of 15 dog lovers, see Meet the staff to find out more about the extended family.
