Rayne Reitnaeur: A perfect day for shopping finds us at the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley with my best buddy, Betty the beagle. Well-behaved dogs are welcome here.
Melissa DiLazarro, Asst. GM/Promenade Shops: The Promenade Shops is a dog friendly shopping center, so we invite shoppers to bring their little puppies and dogs around. We’re happy to see dogs join families for a day.
Rayne Reitnaeur: Your visit isn’t limited to the outdoor areas. Select stores also roll out the doggy red carpet.
Melissa DiLazarro: The Promenade Shops is a lifestyle center, so it’s an outdoor shopping center. We have over 75 merchants here, stores, restaurants and a movie theater. We have several of them that are actually dog-friendly, so you’d shop with your dog. There’s over 25 locations that you could take your dog inside and enjoy the shopping experience.

Kristina Coles, Aerostores Manager: Okay.
On a daily basis, we have a lot of dog friends, I have some best dog friends that like to stop in and say hi. The dogs that come in are very calm, we do have a Canine Code of Conduct, so, you know, the dogs that are coming in are listening to their owners, following their owners.
Rayne Reitnaeur: That Code of Conduct is posted on the grounds and also on the Promenade Shops website. Dogs must be leashed, owners in control, and any accidents cleaned up. Merchants that allow dogs inside will have “Dog Welcome” stickers prominently placed and often water bowls at the door. It’s what attracts fans like Sue Anne and her poodle, Buddy.
Sue Anne, Golden-Promenade Shopper: He loves seeing all the other dogs. He loves the smells down here. To me, it’s such an enjoyable spot because the music down here and the shops are pet friendly, so it makes it enjoyable for both of us.
Rayne Reitnaeur: The Promenade Shops and also goes to the dogs every April.
Melissa DiLazarro: We have Paws on the Promenade, it takes place every April here at the Promenade Shops and we get a lot of the stores involved to do special discounts, one day only discounts, activities for the dogs.
Rayne Reitnaeur: The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley is located near the base of South Mountain, near Allentown and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and near route 378. It is easily accessible from Interstate 78, route 309 and route 145.
