Petco continues to expand south of the border
Petco is growing its footprint in Mexico.
Petco and Petco México announced the opening of the first Petco store in Tijuana. The opening is part of Petco's growing joint venture with Grupo Gigante in Mexico, the company's strongest cross-border effort to date.
Petco Tijuana brings the total number of Petco stores in Mexico to 85, with an additional location. The pet supplies retailer plans to expand to 90 locations by the end of 2019. Growth is expected to maintain momentum throughout 2020 and beyond.
Similar to Petco stores across Mexico, Petco Tijuana features a nutrition-first focus and in-store services such as veterinary care, grooming, dog training and animal adoption stations. Much of Petco Tijuana's more than 7,000 products are ordered directly from Petco's U.S. catalog, but pet parents in Mexico can also choose from a number of high-quality wet and dry dog foods that are developed in-country by Mexican vendors.
Through Petco's "Think Adoption First" philosophy and working in conjunction with local animal welfare organizations, Petco México has helped find homes for more than 45,000 adoptable pets. Working with their local adoption partner, Animales Domésticos A.C., and their large team of volunteers located on both sides of the San Diego-Tijuana region, Petco Tijuana will support the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of dogs from the streets of Baja California.
Petco operates more than 1,500 Petco and Unleashed by Petco locations across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico.
