EarthWise Pet is continuing its rapid expansion by adding all 18 Pet Pros locations to the EarthWise Pet system. Pet Pros has been owned since 1992 by Harvey and Nancy Peterson. The company was named 2019 Retailer of the Year by Pet Business Magazine, and EarthWise Pet earned the same honor in 2021.
Since 2016, day-to-day management has been handled by by general manager Georgann McConn, who will continue to oversee the locations, and no staffing changes are expected. The Pet Pros locations have been purchased by Zeke and Sabino Arredondo, who will operate them as a franchisee of the EarthWise Pet brand.
As the stores are converted into EarthWise Pet locations in the near future, the only major change will be the addition of a dog grooming area that will include professional groomers as well as self-wash stations depending on space and store location.
