Midwest Living Review
A must-visit for pet owners visiting Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward, Metropawlis stocks toys and treats for the family's furry friends. As evidenced by the store's name, the offerings skew heavily toward goodies for dogs and cats, with an emphasis on the former. As much as possible, merchandise comes from mom-and-pop vendors and other independent, family-owned operations--no big-box stuff--and the toothy delights available in the pet bakery at the store's rear (including "Yappy Meals" and tidbits shaped like pizza and other human foods) are all made locally. Perhaps the best known of the shop's products are its pet strollers, which are just what they sound like--enclosable carriages on wheels built for animals to ride in. The strollers are billed as a great way to safely get critters some fresh air in the middle of the city.
