A furry friend spin on the ever-popular Pop-Up Shops

SAN ANTONIO, TX – September 13 , 2021 – Valencia Hotel Group's collection of retro-inspired, court-style hotels including Texican Court in Irving, TX,  Lone Star Court in Austin, TX,  Cavalry Court in College Station, TX, and the newly opened Cotton Court in Lubbock, TX, are taking a pet friendly spin on the ever popular retail pop-up shops. 

In partnership with local pet retailers, the court hotels will be hosting a “Pup-Up Shop” on October 14, 2021 from 5pm-7pm in each of our destinations. Visitors are encouraged to bring their furry friends to shop and enjoy assorted treats for the pets and drink specials for the humans in a ‘pawsitively’ pet friendly environment. 

· Lone Star Court – Family owned and operated, Barkin’ Creek Dog Kitchen & Bath, will be partnering with our hotel in Austin for the first Pup Up Shop.  Their story began in the fall of 2015 with the love of two rescue dogs named Bea and Jax.  Lone Star court is conveniently located in Austin, Texas’ popular shopping complex, The Domain, and embodies the cultural appeal of Austin and the comfort of the Texas Hill Country. 

· Cavalry CourtAmerica’s Country Store & Pet Resort of the Bryan and College Station area opened in 2005.  This pet store is independently owned and operated by Close Quarters Feed and Pet Supply, a family owned and operated business and will be participating in the Pup Up Shop. Cavalry Court is located on four acres in College Station and blends rich history and luxury touches to create an energetic atmosphere.

· Texican Court –Combining modern amenities with timeless hospitality, Texican Court is located in the Las Colinas area in Irving, Texas. The hotel is steps away from popular destinations including the Irving Convention Center and Toyota Music Factory.  In partnership with Homegrown Hounds Dog Deli & Bakery, Texican Court will host it’s first Pup Up Shop.  Homegrown Hounds was created to support the nonprofit dog rescue efforts of Hound Haven, an all volunteer, foster based dog rescue located in the DFW area. 

·  Cotton Court – Local pet retailer, Pets Plus, is slated to be the Pup Up Shop partner in Lubbock.  Pets Plus has grown up with the Lubbock community and is a locally owned and operated pet store opened to provide a unique one-stop shop for pets and their needs. Cotton Court Hotel is a locally inspired boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Lubbock. 

According to Amy Trench, Valencia Group's Corporate Director of Marketing & Public Relations, "We want to make it easy for our guests and local visitors to bring along their furry family members to enjoy all that our Court hotels have to offer. All of our court hotels cater to our four-legged companions and provide acres of fun for your pet to play and explore"
