Petsense store set to open late April

MILLEDGEVILLE — National pet supply retailer Petsense is making final preparations to open its doors to local pet owners in late April, providing a one-stop-shop for pet supplies and services.

Petsense Vice President of Store Operations Tod Hatfield indicated that the rapidly expanding chain “selected Milledgeville because the town features a growing population of diverse demographic groups including students, families, retirees and professionals.”

The tenant, housed in a 6,266 square-foot space between Swan’s Dry Cleaning and LongHorn Steakhouse at the Milledgeville Mall, is slated to officially open April 27.

The Milledgeville location will be the company’s ninth in Georgia with more in development. Petsense will offer premium pet supplies and services that are unavailable in mass market and discount retailers.

After opening a store in Dublin that was very well received by the community, we put Milledgeville very high on our list of areas we wanted to serve. We are happy to be Milledgeville’s source for quality pet supplies that can only be found in pet specialty retailers. In addition to our product offerings, we are proud to offer world-class service to our wonderful customers,” Georgia Market Manager Franc’ee Weaver said. “We understand that pet owners have a choice, and for seven years, they have chosen their local Petsense. We are happy to bring this level of customer service to Milledgeville.”

In addition to a large selection of pet supplies, the Milledgeville Petsense location will carry a variety of pet food brands, including Nutro, Hill’s Science Diet, Iams, Eukanuba, Royal Canin, Wellness, Purina ONE, Natural Balance, Earthborn, Propac and Canidae. The store will also feature a full service pet bathing and grooming salon, affordable pet wellness and vaccination clinics, and an in-store pet adoption center. The store will have cats for adoptions at all times and special events featuring dog adoptions on a regular basis. Petsense does not sell live companion animals in its stores, instead choosing to partner with local rescue groups to help find homes for animals in need.
