Critters has been a favorite gift store in the quaint family community of Montrose, offering fun and exciting products for kids and adults. Its old-fashioned horse (named Champion!) and the Harley motorcycle rides in front of the store bring nostalgia to passerby of a small town USA. For decades, this unique, fun store has been the place to go for birthdays and special occasions, or to find something unusual. It is almost impossible to walk into Critters without smiling. It is well known for their special selection of plush animals and funny greeting cards, but the toys, gag/prank gifts, novelties, hand-made jewelry, boxed signs, and vintage candies don’t go unnoticed.
The new owner has now made it a mission to carry and support the work of local artists and designers. The store now carries beautifully made greeting cards by Marina Tamraz, embellished recycled bottles by Lights by Kay, wooden coin banks made with vintage mailbox doors by Mark Gasper, luscious organic bath and body products by Elena Georgiou, handmade jewelry by L3, and even a restraining gadget called the Go-Go Pet that acts as a seatbelt to protect your beloved dog in the car.
Here at Critters, we pride ourselves with exceptional customer service and the warm connection that we have with our community. Critters isn’t just a gift store, but a place where people come to feel welcomed and loved. We do everything with LOVE!
