A pawsitively exciting day: PetSmart opens in Douglas Submitted photo

The sun was shining on a delightful morning as the Douglas-Coffee County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the highly anticipated opening of PetSmart. The event brought together a jubilant crowd, including a furry guest of honor, Bailey the golden doodle, who couldn't contain her excitement for the pet paradise now gracing the community.



The Chamber of Commerce’s Member Relations Director, Chelsea Preston, warmly welcomed the enthusiastic attendees and extended her heartfelt congratulations to PetSmart for officially becoming an integral part of the beloved local community. The event was brimming with joy as an array of speakers took the stage to share in the celebration.



Pastor Rueben Speight of Greater Destiny International Ministries blessed the establishment with an inspiring invocation, setting the tone for a prosperous journey ahead. Mayor Tony Paulk, with his affection for pets shining through, extended a warm welcome to PetSmart, accompanied by a charming anecdote about his personal bond with his furry companions.



City Manager Charlie Davis captured the excitement that had swept through the community, expressing the town's long-awaited anticipation for the opening of PetSmart.  Dr. Tracy McClelland, Chair of the Chamber of Commerce, warmly welcomed PetSmart on behalf of the Chamber and expressed gratitude for their investment in the community and their collaboration with the Chamber.



Trevor Smith, the Store Manager of the Douglas PetSmart location and a new resident of the community, beamed with enthusiasm as he welcomed all present to explore the store's splendid offerings. The brand-new store boasts a sprawling expanse of over 15,500 square feet, showcasing an extensive array of products catering to cats, dogs, fish, birds, reptiles, and small pets.



“In addition to our grand opening event this upcoming Saturday, I wanted to host a ribbon cutting in conjunction with the Chamber in order to express our appreciation to Douglas and Coffee County for being so welcoming, and to begin fostering relationships with citizens in the community,” stated Smith.



Pet parents are in for a treat, with a comprehensive range of offerings including pet food, toys, treats, apparel, habitats, and supplements — everything required to pamper and care for their furry, feathery, or scaly friends. The store goes above and beyond with its services, including professional pet training, adoptions facilitated by PetSmart Charities, and a luxurious full-service grooming salon where pets can receive tender care from academy-trained and safety-certified stylists, ensuring they both look and feel their best.



PetSmart believes in making pet parenting a breeze, offering multiple shopping options such as contactless curbside pickup and same-day delivery, powered by DoorDash. The introduction of flexible payment solutions through Afterpay's "Buy Now, Pay Later" service adds a layer of convenience for pet parents eager to provide the best for their beloved companions.



As a true beacon of commitment to furry friends, PetSmart operates under the motto "Anything for Pets," standing as the go-to destination for all pet-related needs. With a network of over 1,660 pet stores spanning the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, as well as 200 in-store PetSmart PetsHotel boarding facilities, PetSmart is your one-stop-shop for pet products, services, and solutions.



PetSmart, along with PetSmart Charities and PetSmart Charities of Canada, collaborates with nearly 4,000 animal welfare organizations to connect adoptable pets with loving homes. This dedicated effort underscores PetSmart's unwavering commitment to the well-being of pets and their seamless integration into families.
