Pet Wants CLT: The Urban Feed Store

  • Pet Wants is a health food store for pets! We work with pet parents to help improve the lives of their four-legged companions. We focus on providing natural, fresh, high-quality, nutrition-dense food, treats & other pet products. We offer a wide variety of natural treats and chews sourced from the US, as well as locally curated pet accessories. Our main focus is our fresh pet food that’s cooked in small batches! Made with natural local ingredients monthly, our dry food is much fresher and more nutrient-rich than commercial kibble.

Honeybear Bake Shop

  • Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a baker. I attended culinary school in NY and, over a few years, became a head pastry chef. During COVID, I realized I was ready to do my own thing and open my own bakery. I love to create fun, unique, and nostalgic cookies with a fun-themed cookie box every two weeks!
  • Fun fact: Honeybear is a nickname for my marriage and is not bear related lol. The cat I added in to replace the O because we love cats.

We produce beautiful winter accessories, all made from premium alpaca fleece. Our collection includes alpaca scarves, socks, mittens, beanies, ear muffs, teddy bears, and other garments. Come feel it to believe it!
  • Alpaca is finer than cashmere, warmer than merino wool, and softer than silk!

NC Bee Exchange

  • We began our relationship with honeybees back in 2011. We are a small family-owned apiary and produce our products in small, curated batches at our warehouse in Albemarle, NC.
