Pennsylvania Pet Retailer to Become Pet Supplies Plus Franchise
A pet specialty retailer in Pen Argyl, Pa., will convert and operate as a Pet Supplies Plus this fall.
After eight years of business, Washington Pet owners Bill and Sharon Hannon will continue to own, run and manage the store on a day-to-day basis and all current employees at Washington Pet will be retained. Located at 1310 Blue Valley Drive in Pen Argyl, Pa., the neighborhood pet store will gradually roll in new products along with a complete store makeover over the next several weeks and store signage and banners will be transformed overnight at a date to be determined.
The store is not anticipating any closures or temporary shutdowns during the conversion process.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Pet Supplies Plus family, and we look forward to serving the Slate Belt with high quality products and top-notch customer service,” Hannon said. “Our loyal neighbors will start to see terrific new products along with those they’ve come to expect for their pets and also outstanding rewards programs. Included in our store will now be better benefits overall, including a better selection of foods and treats and lower prices on average. It’s our way of giving back to our community and giving them everything they deserve and more.”
The new Pet Supplies Plus location will offer area residents an easy-to-shop environment, a broader range of food from ultra-premium to basic grocery products, and a wide variety of pet toys, equipment and fish. Additionally, the store will add to its extensive variety of made in the USA pet consumables such as wet and dry food, treats, rawhide, chews and more. Redford Naturals, a Pet Supplies Plus line with all-natural dog foods, will also be sold at the store.
“It is great having Bill, Sharon and Washington Pet in the Pet Supplies Plus family and we can’t wait to see the immediate positive impact the new store has on neighbors in the Slate Belt,” said David Leonardo, senior vice president for franchising at Pet Supplies Plus. “Our store has something for every neighbor and you can always expect to receive outstanding service. Our goal is to provide our neighbors and their pets with the best pet products and resources, along with professional, friendly service.”
