Young entrepreneur opening Modern Companion pet boutique in Chapin
Pets in Chapin are about to get a lot of stylish options. Modern Companion, a pet boutique owned by Maddie St. Gelais, is scheduled to open on Lexington Avenue in early March.
According to St. Gelais, who is 25-years-old, Modern Companion is a community-driven lifestyle brand for pets and their humans. January will mark two years the company has been in business, but St. Gelais has been operating out of her home. After accumulating about 10,000 products, she decided it was time to move her company to a brick-and-mortar location.
