Petstuff, a u.s.-based retail pet care and supplies industry, is opening four superstores in the Toronto area before the end of 1994.

Based in Georgia, Petstuff’s first Canadian store is scheduled to open in October, through Petstuff’s subsidiary, Petstuff Canada.

Petstuff operates 42 stores in the u.s., and plans to have more than 60 superstores in operation by February 1995.

Marketing themselves as the ‘pet-friendly’ stores, Petstuff services will include grooming, obedience training and pet adoption, in addition to an extensive product line of pet food and supplies at competitive prices.

Petstuff will be a new player in the dog-eat-dog pet food industry, which is witnessing a stiff competitive battle for market share between supermarkets and specialty supply stores. AV
