PETSMART ANNOUNCES PROMON? OF MARK HANSEN TO PRESIDENT

 PHOENIX, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Samuel J. Parker, chairman and chief executive officer of PETsMART, has announced the appointment of Mark Hansen to the position of president of PETsMART Inc. Hansen will assume this position in addition to his current title of chief operating officer of the company.
 Hansen's promotion was approved at a recent board of directors meeting at which time Parker's title was changed from president to chairman.

In 1990, Hansen was named executive vice president of the company and in 1991, its chief operating officer, with broadened responsibilities, including store operations. He has been instrumental in PETsMART's growth and development into the country's leading retailer of pet food, supplies and services with 64 stores operating in 13 states.
 In announcing Hansen's promotion, Parker commented that, "With the rapid growth planned for the company in future years beginning with 40 new stores in 1993, Mr. Hansen's proven leadership skills will continue to be critical to the success of our company. He is a highly respected executive within our company and, importantly, throughout the entire pet industry."
 A graduate of Roosevelt University and post graduate of Rutgers University and Northwestern University, Hansen and his wife, Lynn and their cat and two dogs reside in Scottsdale, Ariz.
