The owner of a boutique kennel that went out of business in January, The Spot, is not reopening in another location. Peggy Bernar, who closed her storefront after losing a protracted battle over whether animal boarding was allowed in the mixed-use condo building at 7324 Madison, had suggested on The Spot’s homepage she would be open for business on Jan. 25 following a short hiatus. However, in an e-mail to the Review, Bernar said she has “no plans for a new location as of right now.” The Spot was in business for exactly one year, having opened in January 2008.

Bernar is instead working at another boarding and training facility in Chicago.
