I just heard from a reputable source that Petco is closing its doors at the end of the year. They are closing several stores to cut costs, and the Paris store is on the list. Can someone elaborate on this?

Just heard this come across my scanner... Petco will close its doors at midnight tonight. If you need any $85 dollar dogfood, or a $28 dollar collar, you better hurry.

I just got back from Petco. As bad as I hate to admit it, it is true. Talked to one of the Parrots there. I asked it if the store was closing. It said "Squaaaaaaaakkk!" which I interpreted to mean "Yes kind sir, we are closing indeed."

There's no news, no list, no press release at all to indicate this. So, which other pet store do you work for?
whatever

From all reports Starbucks was doing quite well too and they got closed.

Big business makes no sense when it comes to things like this. They will leave five stores open that you can see from the front door of another store, but shut down the only one in some towns. That simply does not make sense to me.

I would rather close one or two that were in a very saturated population and leave some of the other ones alone. It just seems strange.

Anytime somebody says, "I got it from a reputable source" without specifying the source, you need a great big ol' grain of salt! It's pretty obvious oh my gosh is feeding the gullibles.

I can see why you could be confused as you seem to be clueless in general.

No offense to any of my fellow Parisians but that Petco store was dinky! That was the smallest Petco I think I have seen! Our Petco in Harker Heights (sister city to Killeen) is about 5 times that big. So is out Petsmart. Granted I live in a city that is 100,000+(not including Ft Hood which is about 50,000) but dang. If they are going to put in a chain like that make it worth while! Just MO.

....my parents shopped there this weekend when I was in town and they never led on to the rumor of it closing but who knows?

Ross or Stein Mart would probably be a hit!
