When one of the local Apalachicola shops, PETunia, came up for sale, with the generous assistance of some of our Board, we were able to purchase it. We bought it in hopes that while providing a place where local pet owners and tourists traveling with their furry kids could find high quality food, treats, toys, collars and all sorts of pet related gifts, we could also use it to raise some money for the Dixie Theatre Foundation. In the winter of 2013/2014 we decided to merge with Dixie’s Dog Biscuit Company, OYSTERBONES®, which was established the same year the Theatre re-opened in 1998, and change the name from PETunia to OYSTERBONES®. On May 1, 2014, we moved to a fabulous new location at 58 Market Street, expanded the shop and are thrilled to offer even more cool stuff for pets & their people. We also feature a doggie toy testing area with pools to cool off your best friend and room to run around a little, all in a secure enclosure. Please, support OYSTERBONES® as another way of supporting live theater on The Forgotten Coast. Your pets will thank you and so will we.
OYSTERBONES® is located on the corner of Avenue D & Highway 98 (Market Street) in downtown Apalachicola, We’re right across the street from Up the Stairs Restaurant, a step above in fine dining & cocktails and right next door to the Gibson Inn. For the summer, we’ll be open 7 days a week; Monday – Saturday, 10 AM – 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM – 4 PM.
