Petco opens new DC to keep pace with expansion


Petco is expanding its store portfolio and distribution center network.

In keeping with its 2016 growth plan, which includes 27 new store openings year-to-date, Petco will open a new distribution center on May 11, 2016, in Reno, Nevada.

The company will also open a new Unleashed by Petco store in Maryland, and re-open a newly expanded Southern California Petco store in place of a previous Unleashed by Petco locations.

The new 770,000-sq.-ft. Reno facility is Petco's tenth distribution center and the first the company has constructed and designed specifically to meet its own needs. Open for partial operations since October 2015 , the facility is now fully operational and services more than 200 Petco and Unleashed by Petco stores in the Northwest region, as well as the retailer’s online site.

Petco’s Unleashed format is a smaller-store concept that dog training areas, adoption centers, a large made-in-the-USA assortment and natural and organic dog and cat food. The newly expanded, full-format Petco store will continue to offer a wide selection of private label offerings as well as branded products sold only at Petco.

Petco operates more than 1,430 Petco locations across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico, including more than 115 Unleashed by Petco locations, a smaller format neighborhood shop.
