Pet Valu U.S., a speciality retailer of pet food and supplies across the States, has announced that it will commence a complete wind down of operations due to the impact of COVID-19.
This includes all of its 358 stores and warehouses situated in the Northeastern and Midwestern U.S., as well as its corporate office in Wayne, Pennsylvania.
“The Pet Valu U.S. team is proud to have met the needs of our devoted pet lover customers in the U.S. for more than 25 years,” said Jamie Gould, the organization’s recently appointed chief restructuring officer. “However, the company’s stores have been significantly impacted by the protracted COVID-19-related restrictions. After a thorough review of all available alternatives, we made the difficult but necessary decision to commence this orderly wind down.
“During the store closing process, we will continue to provide our customers with the same great in-store experience, offering them even better deals and value. We will work to assist our dedicated associates through the transition. We thank all of them for their commitment to our company and our customers, and especially for going above and beyond so we could help customers as an essential service during the pandemic.”
Pet Valu Canada, a separate entity that licenses its name and contracts to Pet Valu U.S., will remain in operation and is not impacted by this wind down. All 600 of its stores and e-commerce site will continue to provide goods and services to Canadian customers.
