LACEY – Pet Supplies Plus has taken the place of the former Pet Valu store on Route 9.
Pet Supplies Plus later said it would acquire an estimated 40 Pet Valu locations in Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. It included Pet Valu’s 4,000-square-foot store at 328 Route 9 in the township’s Lanoka Harbor section. The store has now reopened as Pet Supplies Plus.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to takeover Pet Valu locations and further build the relationship between Pet Supplies Plus and the local community,” said Gary Orlando, division team leader, in a statement. “We feel that Pet Valu provides us an opportunity to purchase a turnkey operation that reinforces and supports our vision, while serving an existing customer base.”
