Pet Supplies is the nation's largest franchised specialty pet supply retailer.
Our smaller store sizes provide a more convenient shopping experience for our customers, while allowing us to enter trade areas where our big-box warehouse style competitors can't. Even though our stores are smaller, we carry a larger variety of products, at retail prices that will often meet, or beat, our competitors.
Why Pet Supplies Plus?
Why the Pet Industry?
Pet industry spending is at an all-time high with overall spending at an estimated $69.36 billion. The American Pet Products Association reports that 65% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 79.7 million homes. Pet products and services now constitute a $60+ billion industry, up by 4.4% in the past year alone. The pet supply industry has proven resilient, expanding 6.5% year-over-year even during the recession.
