Copperopolis Town Square has announced two upcoming store openings.

Opening in late May or June, Chloe & Zoey's Pet Boutique will offer high-quality dog and cat products including all-natural, holistic food and treats as well as clothing, costumes and accessories.

In addition, it plans to host dog adoptions and vaccination clinics throughout the year. A self-serve dog wash will also be on-site.

Offering a pet-friendly atmosphere, Copperopolis Town Square hosts two "Dog Day Afternoon" events each year, benefiting the Calaveras Humane Society. Chloe & Zoey's Pet Boutique owner Danny Do resides in Stockton and worked in the pet supply industry for more than 18 years.

Griff's BBQ n' Grill will offer a casual dining experience with historical decorations of the Gold Rush era, including artifacts, mining carts and original lumber from the mid-1800s.

The menu will include smoked ribs and chicken, steaks, pulled pork and tri-tip sandwiches, gourmet burgers and fresh salads. Prime rib and lamb specials will also be available. Griff's BBQ n' Grill is slated to open early this summer.

In addition, Fancy Pans kitchen and gifts specialty shop in the Town Square is under new ownership since February. The store offers new product lines, cake decorating classes and supplies.

The new owners are Jon and Leslie Watkins, of Copperopolis.
