Dog Island City, which has been located at 5-29 50th Avenue for the past five years, is moving to Court Square.
Lidia Lozovsky, the owner of Dog Island City, said she is moving in order to be in a much larger space. Her current store is about 600 square feet, while the new space at 27-18 44th Drive will be about 1,000 square feet, she said.
The move, which was first reported by LICCourtSquare blog, is expected to take place in June. Lozovsky doesn’t believe there is a new tenant to take over her current 50th Avenue space once she departs.
Lozovsky said she sells general pet supplies and offers grooming, doggie day care and cat sitting.
Her new location will on 44th Drive near the corner of Jackson Avenue, by the Burger Garage. The space is currently under construction.
“I’m excited by the move,” Lozovsky said. “I think I’m moving to the up-and-coming section of long island City.”
