Pet Supplies Plus Plans 10 Kansas City Area Locations
Pet Supplies Plus, the pet retail chain that currently has more than 10 locations in 27 states, plans 10 locations for Kansas City in the next four years.
The Livonia, Mich.-based company signed a deal with Hurst, Texas-based B&B Pet Products, which plans to open the first area location in December and is in final negotiations for a space in Lenexa. The second location is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2017.
According to the American Pet Products Association, pet industry spending was $60.28 billion in 2015 and estimates sales to be $62.75 billion this year.
“But we haven’t seen competition keep up with the growth and demand in many pockets, and Kansas City is one of those pockets,” said Greg McMillan, owner of the new locations.
The stores, which are typically 8,000-10,000 square feet, offer a selection of pet food, pet products and grooming services; the stores also sell birds and fish.
The pet retail chain also plans to open a total of 60 new stores in California, Colorado and Oklahoma this year.
