The new Cerritos PetSmart officially opened its doors Monday with the help of local officials and business leaders -- a precursor to the retailer's plans for a community celebration this Saturday, which will feature trick training classes and giveaways of products, gift cards and pet services such as grooming and training classes.
Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Barrows alongside councilmembers Mark Pulido and Carol Chen, and president Linda Frisbey attended the Aug. 6 ribbon cutting ceremony, officially welcoming the specialty retailer to its new home at the Cerritos Towne Center.
After the ceremony, attendees got the chance to tour the store, which sells food, supplies and accessories for dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles and small pets. Aside from its products, PetSmart also provides pet boarding, pet grooming and pet training amenities. Through a partnership with local adoption agencies, dogs and cats available for adoption will also be displayed inside the store.
Though the store is now open for business, an official community Grand Opening will be held on Saturday, August 11, starting at 9 a.m. Part of the daylong festivities will include an appearance by Bentley, the dog with the longest tail according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Attendees can meet the world famous dog and take pictures with him.
