New Petcetera Retail Ltd signals Canadian economy is back on track

    Petcetera to reopen 20 top performing locations across Canada this

    RICHMOND, BC, Sept. 1 /CNW/ - New Petcetera Retail Ltd is pleased to
announce the Grand Opening of 20 stores across Canada on September 26th.
Founder, Owner, President, CEO and well-known Vancouver entrepreneur, Dan
Urbani, has purchased the best performing retail pet superstores from the
previous company, Canadian Petcetera Limited Partnership and made significant
changes in response to customer demand.

    The new stores features will include:

    -   50 per cent new product assortments
    -   Better pet nutrition, with a focus on natural foods
    -   A 20 per cent increase in store staff with improved training,
        motivation and education
    -   Sale of domestic animals only, with reptiles and smaller animals such
        as ferrets now being offered.

    "New Petcetera Retail Ltd is a true sign of economic recovery", says Mr
Urbani, CEO, New Petcetera Retail Ltd. "We are very fortunate to have this
opportunity to return with an even stronger offering for the consumer in the
pet speciality segment. With our new look, better service, an improved
in-stock position and pet nutrition, I believe that the new stores will be a
phenomenal success."
    Urbani continues, "We continue to remain in tune with increasing public
social responsibility and awareness. We have always been strong advocates of
animal welfare working closely with local non-profit organizations through
both our innovative P.A.W.S (Petcetera Animal Welfare Society), which promotes
responsible pet ownership and works to reduce cat and dog euthanasia rates,
and our support of local adoption programs."
