Pet retailer will continue to provide customer discounts of up to 75 per
cent on store merchandise to support restructuring activities
RICHMOND, BC, May 6 /CNW/ - Petcetera reopened its East Vancouver store
for customers and their pets on May 6 after the Supreme Court of British
Columbia ruled that the company can remain open. The store - located at Rupert
St. and Grandview Hwy. - had been periodically closed in April because of an
ongoing rent dispute with the retailer's landlord.
During the temporary store closure, Petcetera remained committed to the
care of the animals located in the store's P.A.W.S. centre. Each day, staff
went into the store to properly feed, exercise and care for all the animals.
"We are very pleased that the court has ruled in our favour so that we
can return to serving our loyal and patient customers and their pets in East
Vancouver," said Dan Urbani, president and CEO of Petcetera. "I would like to
thank each and every member of our staff for their ongoing commitment and
dedication to the animals during this challenging time."
Petcetera announced last week that its 60-day inventory sale had been
expanded to provide customers with additional discounts and cost savings on a
wider variety of pet products.
Based in Richmond, B.C., Petcetera is a 100 per cent Canadian owned and
operated private company with 1,600 employees and 49 stores across Canada.
Founded in 1997, Petcetera is Canada's leading pet superstore that offers pet
owners more than 10,000 pet products as well as a full range of pet care
services including pet hospitals (Vetcetera), pet grooming, obedience school,
doggy daycare centres, pet photography and pet licensing. Petcetera is
committed to giving back to the community through P.A.W.S (Petcetera Animal
Welfare Society), which promotes responsible pet ownership and works to reduce
cat and dog euthanasia rates.
