Pet Parents and Their Pets Invited to Attend Celebration

PHOENIX--()--PetSmart today announced the opening of its New York City store, which will grand open on Mon., April 28, at 9 a.m. The new store, located in New York City’s Flatiron neighborhood at 1107 Broadway at 24th Street, is the 18th store opened in fiscal year 2018 and PetSmart’s 63rd location in New York state.

The first 50 shoppers on April 28 will receive a mystery gift card (values range from $5 up to $50), and all shoppers may receive free giveaways such as T-shirts, pet treat samples, pet toys and discount coupons.*

The new store features nearly 16,000 square-feet of space, providing pet parents with a comprehensive line of pet products and unique services including:

  • PetSmart's new Pinnacle Pet Nutrition section, an expanded collection of pet food products featuring high-protein, natural, grain-free, minimally processed and raw pet food. This food type is the fastest growing in the overall pet food category and includes brands such as Only Natural Pet®, a natural pet brand featuring holistic, paleo-inspired natural foods and wholesome high-protein recipes that are dehydrated, freeze-dried and air-dried. PetSmart is the exclusive national retailer for Only Natural Pet.
  • Services including training, day camp services and a full-service grooming salon where dogs and cats receive hands-on care from academy-trained, safety-certified stylists dedicated to making pets look and feel their best. Additionally, the store features a self-service dog wash station that is free for the first 30 days of opening.
  • Digital displays, interactive small animal habitats and unique décor that is custom to the store.
  • A community board and calendar of events in the area, keeping the neighborhood informed on different PetSmart events for their four-legged friends.

PetSmart, The Adopt Spot™, is where people save pets and pets save people. Every PetSmart store, including this store in Flatiron, builds long-lasting relationships with local animal welfare organizations to utilize its stores as adoption centers.

Since its founding in 1987, PetSmart recognized the pet homelessness problem and made the decision to never sell dogs or cats. To help end pet homelessness and save lives, PetSmart joins PetSmart Charities®, PetSmart Charities® of Canada and more than 3,500 local animal welfare organizations across North America on a range of powerful adoption events in PetSmart stores. PetSmart and its adoption partners have reached a significant milestone – more than 7.9 million pets adopted since 1994! Nearly two out of every 10 pet adoptions in North America are facilitated at a PetSmart store.

PetSmart is a leader in ending pet homelessness through in-store adoptions that happen every day in its stores, and through National Adoption Weekends, held four times a year, where as many as 30,000-plus pets find forever homes in a single weekend event. Each year, millions of pets enter shelters across North America and some 3 million healthy, adoptable pets are euthanized. The Flatiron store will also feature a specialized cat adoption center that allows cats to socialize in a unique environment while waiting to find their forever homes.

*All grand opening giveaways available while supplies last.
