May 31, 2023

A pet groomer and other retail could be coming to Highway 29 near Highway 196.

Plans have been filed with Escambia County Development Review for the “Cozy Corner” pet grooming facility and leasable retail space at 4178 HIghway 29 on two adjacent lots totaling 1.82 acres between the Florida Forest Service fire tower to the south and Highway 196 to the north.

Plans show a proposed 4,740 square foot building and a parking lot on one of the parcels with an entrance driveway between the two parcels.

The plans are in the initial review process before the Escambia County Development Review Committee.

    Great group of ladies who do a wonderful job with our fur babies. Can’t wait until the new location is open.

    Bring on the growth. Im all for it. But leave the farm lands alone. Respect the farmers. No farms no food

    No we don’t need anymore growth in THIS area ! Especially retail stores… It needs to remain rural! We have enough houses and people coming out this way! This is why we moved out here to get
    Away from the town :)

    Another weed dispensary or check cashing place would look nice there as well.

    Hopefully they put a vape store in there. We don’t have enough of those around here.

    This is a locally owned and operated business. This is the type of growth we need in this area.
