Calling themselves the ‘Girls on the Green,’ three women-owned businesses look forward to operating adjacent to one another in Stapleton’s Conservatory Green.
Dr. Shelly Sandel and Jen Weston are the co-owners of Northfield Veterinary Hospital and saw the need for a small, intimate veterinary practice in Stapleton. “There are other great veterinary hospitals in the area, but we wanted to offer a unique practice approach that allows us to really get to know all of our patients and provide personalized and compassionate care to each pet family,” said Sandel.
While the office location was under construction, Sandel and Weston operated a mobile clinic that allowed them to provide pet health services and build their clientele before their permanent facility opened its doors. House calls by appointment remain an important part of their practice for animals that are fearful of trips to the vet or for older animals that no longer travel easily. Home visits are also particularly convenient for many pet owners with busy schedules. “Aside from surgical procedures, we can do almost everything in a client’s home that we can do here at the office. From wellness checks and vaccinations to caring for a pet who is under the weather, we can accommodate the patient and owner’s unique needs, Sandel said.”
The hospital is a full service facility for dogs and cats. To learn more or make an appointment, visit www.northfieldvethospital.com.
Ace’s High Spirits, owned by Stephanie Cloven, is open for business. Carrying a full inventory of wine, beer and spirits, the store also makes a point to carry local favorites and products that are regularly requested by customers. “We want to be able to uniquely serve our clientele by offering what we know they like,” said Cloven.
Cloven, a former flight attendant, saw the need for a liquor store in Conservatory Green. She decided to fill the void by opening a store that focuses on a shopping experience that differs from the standard liquor store. “I decided that a visually appealing store with pops of color would create a more pleasant shopping environment for women and men. It’s just a less utilitarian approach than other stores provide,” Cloven said. Customer service is also a big emphasis in the store. “Having been a flight attendant, I know that great customer service is what brings people back,” said Cloven. She emphasizes that her favorite part of the workday is having the chance to meet new people.
In addition to regular customers, Cloven says she also sees lots of visitors from out of town. Cloven states, “Our proximity to the sports complex in Commerce City brings in lots of visitors. It’s fun to meet them and get their perspective.”

Dr. Preet Clair is opening her new location and will start seeing patients in Conservatory Green on July 11.
Clair Family Dentistry is moving from Quebec Square where it has been a fixture for the last 12 years. Dr. Clair’s practice rapidly outgrew its existing space and she found the opportunity to relocate ideal.
The Northfield office will be a beautiful, serene space that is reflective of Dr. Clair’s love for her former home in Nova Scotia. Patient comfort has been the top consideration in the office design. All patient treatment rooms have a view of the park and are infused with beautiful, natural light. “Many of my patients know where I’m from and will gain some additional insight into who I am when they visit,” said Clair.
“The emphasis at Clair Family Dentistry is on building long-term relationships with patients,” said Clair. “We are conservative and overall health centered. Our patients have been very supportive and are as excited about our new space as we are – maybe even more so!”
Dr. Clair will host an Open House sometime before school starts in the Fall. She also plans to host combined events with the other two businesses. For more information, visit www.clairdental.com.
