Support Local Business
Gordon and Sue Kriebel are the founders and owner operators of Perk Valley Pet Eatery. Gordon and Sue are long-time residents of the Perkiomen Valley, residing since 1989. They are married and have two grown children, Lauren and Aidan, each of whom grew up as employees in the store. Gordon and Sue have four cats at home, all of which have come from the adoptions cages at the store! Emily, the cocker spaniel, rounds out their collection of pets and you’ll often see her at the store with a tennis ball in her mouth!
In 2003, Gordon and Sue opened Trappe Feed & Pet Supply on West Main Street in Trappe, adjacent to the Dairy Queen. The store initially was a full line pet store, with small animals and a live tropical fish department. Since that time, the focus of the store changed to a pet food and supply only model, mainly focusing on canine and feline products. In 2009, the store changed its name to Perk Valley Pet Eatery and in the fall of 2012, they relocated the business to the Trappe Shopping Center, where it is located today.
Gordon and Sue are active in the pet industry, attending trade events and seminars to learn about products and trends in nutrition. They have been recognized as a leading independent store and an innovative force in the market they serve. Gordon has been in the pet industry since 1979, in a variety of roles that have provided a depth of experience and knowledge. Sue has been employed in the past in the corporate pharmaceutical industry, leaving that behind to join Gordon full time in 2003.
Today Gordon and Sue are passionate and strong advocates for defending the market value of independent pet specialty stores and are locally active in community charities, and church and ministry organizations.
