Geronimo’s, Ltd., Nantucket’s pet supply and gift shop, opened in May, 1991, shortly after I arrived on Nantucket with my husband Fred, our Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Geronimo, and two cats. Finding no sources for the pet products I had become accustomed to purchasing in my former home near Denver, Colorado, I decided to open a shop.
Over the years, Geronimo’s has become a fixture of the Nantucket retail scene, a dependable resource for those beloved companion animals and a must-stop location for anyone visiting the island. We bring to Geronimo’s a comprehensive mix of both the practical standards as well as the latest trends in pet supplies and pet-themed gifts for people.
Geronimo’s is located at 119 Pleasant Street in the mid-Island area across the street from Cape Cod 5 Bank and next door to the new Stop & Shop (see map). Customers constantly appreciate our distinctive variety of products and our attractive and enticing store atmosphere. Our year-round staff is helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Shop Online on our newly revamped website or Call Us on our toll free number, 1-800-738-7297, to discuss your particular pet or gift needs.
Cold Noses has been a member of our Geronimo’s family since 2009. The downtown pet boutique on Straight Wharf for over 25 years, Cold Noses is famous for signature exclusive Nantucket-themed collars, leashes and distinctive pet accessories. We strive to offer the unique gift or Nantucket keepsake for your pet or pet owner. Located in The Courtyard on Straight Wharf (see map), Cold Noses is open seasonally, but you can Shop Online year-round through our Geronimo’s website. Or Call Us at 508-228-5477.
Located behind Geronimo’s at 119b, Akimbo, Beads & Things, is my newest venture. Inspired by my recent passion for beads and beading, Akimbo’s offers a wide selection of beads, stringing materials and supplies. Customers can receive instruction to get started on a project at home or create a beautiful piece of jewelry using Akimbo’s table and tools. Private parties are available for BFF fun, birthdays, bridal or other special occasions. Visit Akimbo, open year-round, in our gorgeous shop or Shop Online. Follow us on Facebook or Pinterest.
Thank you to all our customers who have been so supportive and encouraging through many years. We hope you continue to enjoy all that our shops bring to you either in person or through social media.
