Pet retail giant Petco is set to launch its new community-driven test concept store designed for rural communities. The Neighborhood Farm & Pet Supply format will make its debut in Floresville, Tex. on June 17, serving the needs of pets and farm animals.
"These are rapidly-growing markets where pet parents are looking for an experienced, pet-dedicated partner like Petco to help them care for the health and wellness of their animals," said Petco CEO, Ron Coughlin. "This is an exciting opportunity for us to serve more pets by dramatically expanding local access to healthy pet products and services."
The new pet care centers feature brand-new, stand-alone retail locations located at the heart of small-town and rural communities. The Neighborhood Farm & Pet Supply pet care centers aim to serve as a ‘one-stop shop’ for health and wellness solutions for pets and farm animals such as horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats and more.
