Pets make for great company - whether you're lounging on the couch, going for a drive or walking the block. But, unfortunately not every location is pet-friendly especially when it comes to offices & retail stores.
Having your pet accompany to certain public places can be inconvenience because it is not safe to leave them in the car and in the instance that you do let them out, chances are you'll be limited to window shopping.
While most stores do not allow animals besides service dogs, there are a few national retailers that have implemented a pet-friendly policy for customers who like to shop with their furry companions.
Here's a list of 21 retailers, not including pet stores, that will let your pet tag along as your shop:
2. Home Depot
4. Pottery Barn
11. Urban Outfitters
13. Free People
14. Foot Locker
16. Old Navy
18. Bass Pro Shops
Although the above stores do generally allow pets, it is ultimately up to the individual store managers to decide how to enact the policy. So it may be a good idea to call ahead if you're having doubts.
