BUSINESS - PetSmart Expanding

With 50 new stores in the 2015 fiscal year, PetSmart plans to continue its growth by opening another 80 stores in the U.S. and Canada in 2016.

The new stores average over 12,000 square feet with service offerings such as grooming and pet training.

“We are ramping up efforts to expand our footprint in North America and are actively identifying and evaluating opportunities in both current and new markets,” said Brian Amkraut, senior vice president of real estate, strategy and initiatives.

“Our customers prioritize convenience, and we are listening and responding. Our aim is to focus on consumers’ localized needs and we’re pleased to have more opportunities to engage with and serve customers, and to be active in supporting pets and pet parents in these communities.”

PetSmart’s continued expansion is part of its long-term growth strategy and will further strengthen its position as the largest specialty pet retailer in North America.

PetSmart operates 1,466 stores in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and 203 in-store PetSmart® PetsHotel® dog and cat boarding facilities.
