PETsMART ANNOUNCES OPENING IN MESA, ARIZ. MESA, Ariz., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- PETsMART, the nation's leading
retailer of pet food and supplies, has announced the opening of a new store in Mesa, Feb. 24.
The new Mesa store at Broadway and Dobson, next to Price Club, brings the number of confirmed new store openings for 1992 to 32. PETsMART, headquartered in Phoenix, currently operates 36 stores in nine states. The location of the Mesa store was specifically chosen to make PETsMART stores more accessible to East Valley residents in the three major population areas. The Price Road store in Tempe will be relocated to the Mesa site, providing better coverage in the East Valley. Other East Valley stores are located in Chandler at 808 W. Warner Road and in West Tempe at 1315 W. Elliot Road. In addition, the 10th Valley PETsMART is currently under construction at 75th Avenue and McDowell Road. The corporation has also announced plans for a second PETsMART in Las Vegas. The first Las Vegas PETsMART opened in December 1991 and was extremely well-received in the community. Based on the store's overwhelming success, a second Las Vegas store will open this spring. Generally located within "power" retail centers, PETsMART caters to dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, fish, rabbits and other small animals. The one-of-a-kind superstores, which average 25,000 square feet, actually encourage pet owners to bring pets along while they shop. Each PETsMART employs 30-35 associates. The unique philosophy of PETsMART advocates the adoption of homeless animals from shelters and other facilities. Therefore, PETsMART does not sell dogs, cats, puppies or kittens at any of its stores. PETsMART only sells domestically bred birds and freshwater fish in support of environmental efforts. PETsMART currently operates in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The corporation anticipates it will double its number of stores in the coming year. PETsMART, a privately held corporation, is located at 10000 N. 31st Ave., Suite C-300, Phoenix, Ariz., 85051. -0- 2/12/92 /CONTACT: Missy Lagomarsino of Martz & Wadas, 602-998-3154, for PETsMART/ CO: PETsMART ST: Arizona IN: REA SU:
