Looks like Iggy’s Place is out of business. Owner and animal rescue champion Danny Heaps talked with Baristanet last August about how business had fallen off dramatically over the previous year:
“It’s a funny thing owning a small business in Montclair. I never knew how hard it would be,” says Heaps. “The business is there to subsidize the animal rescue we do. I want to keep doing the rescue work, but I can’t afford to if the business continues to lose money.”
Many area pet owners loved the store. Montclair artist Scott Sorrentino sang the praises of the “anti-Petco” in this Baristanet post from the archives.
Let’s hope all of Heap’s fosters found happy homes.
