Pet Supermarket has it all for your furry friends. The company sells more than 8,000 pet care products, including food, toys, medicine, and clothing, through its website and more than 110 stores in a dozen states, primarily Florida. Stores also offer vaccinations for dogs, cats, and ferrets, and sell a variety of small animals (such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, and tropical fish). In addition, Pet Supermarket works with area organizations to host adoptions and related events for cats and dogs. Like its pet superstore competitors, customers can take their pets shopping with them. Founded in 1973 by Chuck West as Pet Circus, the family-owned company became Pet Supermarket in 1986.
To strengthen its brand, the retailer has rolled out e-commerce capabilities on its website. This helps to bring the Pet Supermarket name to customers who may not live near one of its retail stores. With its e-commerce operations in place, the company hopes to accelerate its store-based growth nationwide.
Pet Supermarket continues to develop its retail network in Florida, where the bulk of its stores are located, and throughout the Southeast. The company also has its eye on growth opportunities in other parts of the country and hopes to expand its existing base in the central and western US, including in California, Ohio, Nevada, and Wisconsin, where some half a dozen stores are based. – less
