Petco Expands Distribution in Reno, Retail Presence in Reno, Southern California
Petco has opened 27 new stores in 2016; now the pet retail giant is opening its newest distribution center in Reno, Nev.
Petco’s 2016 growth plan is an aggressive one, with the opening of 27 new stores to date, and now the pet retail giant announced it is opening its newest distribution center in Reno, Nev. Further, the company will open a new Unleashed by Petco store in Maryland and reopen a newly expanded Southern California Petco store in place of a previous Unleashed by Petco location.
The new 770,000-square-foot Reno distribution center, Petco’s 10th facility, has been open for partial operations since October 2015 but will celebrate its official grand opening with a ribbon cutting and community event on May 11. Now fully operational, the facility services more than 200 Petco and Unleashed by Petco stores in the Northwest region, as well as petco.com.
The new Unleashed by Petco store offers pet owners and their pets dog training areas, adoption centers, a large made in the USA assortment, and natural and organic dog and cat food. The newly expanded, full-format Petco store will continue to offer a wide selection of private-label offerings as well as branded products sold only at Petco, including the Dr. Seuss and Star Wars Pet Fan collections.
Both Petco and Unleashed by Petco offer pet food, toys and apparel to grooming and in-store Vetco clinics. In addition, new in-store habitats for adoptable cats will enhance Petco’s monthly in-store adoption events for pet owners looking to give a furry friend a forever home.
Through May 20-22, people and pets are invited to attend the new Unleashed by Petco grand opening in Hyattsville, Md., and the newly expanded Petco grand reopening in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego, which will host a Wellness Center celebration June 4-5. Grand opening activities include ribbon cutting ceremonies on May 20, as well as in-store adoption events and special offers for Pals Rewards customers.
