PETsMART TO OPEN SECOND STORE IN LAS VEGAS

 PETsMART TO OPEN SECOND STORE IN LAS VEGAS
 LAS VEGAS, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- PETsMART, the nation's leading


retailer of pet food and supplies, has announced plans for a second Las Vegas store.
 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 at the southeast corner of Charleston and Decataur. This second PETsMART will be built to suit in a retail center which already features Phar- Mor, Service Merchandise, Builder's Square, Smart & Final and Computer City. PETsMART is represented locally by the commercial brokerage firm of L.L. SES, who are currently investigating two additional sites for the corporation.
 The company has also announced the scheduled opening of a new store in Mesa, Ariz. The new Mesa store at Broadway and Dobson, scheduled to open Feb. 24, brings the number of confirmed new store openings for 1992 to 32. PETsSMART, headquartered in Phoenix, currently operates 36 stores in nine states.
 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.
