It is not often that two people throw caution to the wind and seek out a way to follow their passions as opposed to going with the normal ebb and flow of everyday society. The Tesenes, Andy and AdreAnne, have done just such a thing. In fact, because of the love and dedication that this couple developed for their two adopted Boston Terriers, Roscoe and Daisy, they decided that instead of following their professional careers of engineer and speech pathologist, they would instead help pet owners like themselves ensure optimal pet wellness and welfare. By offering their products and services to the community as a whole, they hoped to strengthen the companion bond for others as well as themselves. Thus, Two Bostons was created in 2005 shortly after the previous Iowa residents were married and moved to Illinois.
The Tesenes obviously did not have a background in owning or operating a small business since their training at the University of Iowa did not lend them the knowledge to go down this path and since they had never run a business before. They did realize, however, that others did have these types of backgrounds. Their focus was to develop an attentive, informative, one-of-a-kind customer service experience type of situation.
So, as a result, each and every team member of the Two Bostons family is specifically selected for his or her love for animals and undergoes 40 hours of focused, detailed training regarding the stores’ specialized product selection for both dogs and cats. The products include holistic, grain-free pet foods in dry, dehydrated, frozen and canned formulations. They carry a hand-selected variety of nutritional supplements for your pet’s skin and coat, joint support and digestion. For the home, they carry top-quality bedding. For the pets themselves, there is specialty clothing, durable ID tags and toys.
If the customer is in the profession, there are also professional-grade grooming products. For the pet lover or parent, there are pet-related gifts of many varieties.
Because of their love and dedication, the Two Bostons staff is increasing because their number of locals is increasing. They have just recently opened up their third location in Geneva, Illinois. Their original location is on Jefferson Street, right in the prime down-town shopping area while their second location is at the Springbrook Mall off of 75th Street.
Each of the three stores and the animal professionals employed there uphold the owners’ unwavering commitment to providing pets and their people with the most informative, effortless and enjoyable shopping experience possible. Feel free to stop in to see what all of the rave is about. You will catch the excitement and know that you have entered a special store built just for you and your pet by people that understand!
