A pet shop in New York City has been given a new lease on life, with Peter Ustevich’s sons, who he calls Pet Shop Boys, joining the ranks of their grandfather’s favourite customers.
Peter Ustinskaya said the boys were not just about selling puppies, but also about buying new clothes for the store.
“They’re also buying for the next year, so they can make sure that we have a healthy future,” Mr Usteich said.
“I love my boys,” Mr Stokinova said, explaining why the new owners had made the decision to bring them aboard.
“We want to keep Peter’s spirit alive,” Mr Tkachenko said.
Pet Shop Boys has been in business for 35 years.
The family said the move to the US was the result of Peter’s health issues, which are not thought to be life-threatening.
“He’s got a lot of health problems, but he’s not too old, so he can get on with it,” Mr Kachenko told the AP news agency.
“Peter is very good at maintaining his health and that’s why he decided to go to the United States,” Mr Petkov said.
Peter’s grandson, who was also born in Russia, is now an entrepreneur.
“He loves the Americans and he likes to work in the United Kingdom and in the U.S.
A new pet shop is just a matter of time,” Mr Jochen Petkov told AP.
