Saanich animal lovers will soon have a new place to pick up supplies for their furry family members.
PetSmart will be opening at Uptown Saturday, with a 9 a.m. grand opening set for the new store at 101 – 3501 Blanshard St. Residents are invited to bring their four-legged friends to the opening which begins with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The first 50 shoppers will receive a mystery gift card (potential value from $5 up to $50) and all shoppers will receive free giveaways such as T-shirts, pet treat samples, pet toys and coupons (while supplies last).
The store’s adoption partner, the Greater Victoria Animal Crusaders, will be on site with cats and small animals available for adoption. PetSmart is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless pets through in-store adoptions and through its signature National Adoption Weekend events where nearly 20,000 pets find forever homes across Canada every year.
The new Saanich store features more than 12,300 square feet of space. PetSmart offers useful services such as pet training and a full-service grooming salon.
