PHOENIX — PetSmart this weekend held ribbon-cutting ceremonies to mark two new store openings — one in Benton, Ark., at 20460 Interstate 30 N., and another in Glen Cove, N.Y., at 121 School St.
Both store locations will showcase PetSmart's new Pinnacle Pet Nutrition section, an expanded collection of products featuring high-protein, natural, grain-free, minimally processed and raw pet food. Consumers are looking to purchase healthier foods made with natural ingredients for their pets in greater numbers, making holistic foods one of the fastest growing in the pet food category overall.
PetSmart is ready to fill that need by having a section in its stores dedicated to holistic pet food, which includes its exclusive Only Natural Pet brand.
Founded by Marty Grosjean and formulated by a holistic veterinarian, the brand was developed to address the health issues of Grosjean’s rescue dog. The line features holistic, paleo-inspired natural foods that are high in protein, and free of starches, artificial ingredients and grains. PetSmart is the exclusive national retailer for Only Natural Pet.
The Benton store is 18,000-sq. ft, while the Glen Cove store is 14,000 sq. ft. Both will offer shoppers a comprehensive line of pet products. The new stores also offer pet training and adoption services, and include a full-service grooming salon.
