PETCO (NASDAQ: PETC) is a leading specialty retailer of premium pet food, supplies and services. The company operates over 800 stores in 49 states and the District of Columbia. Each store carries more than 10,000 pet-related products and offers services such as grooming, vaccination clinics, obedience training and photography. Where pet owners are normally required to leave their pets in the car when they shop, PETCO invites shoppers to bring their pets directly into the stores to participate in the shopping experience.
Bob Moore Construction was the general contractor for the newest PETCO retail store in Mansfield, Texas, just south of Fort Worth. This construction project was built on behalf of Kossman Development Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Kossman Development Company was the architect for the building shell; Ignarri-Lummis Architects, LLP from Cherry Hill, NJ was the architect for the interior finish-out.
The new PETCO store features a complete pet grooming area, a large bird habitat, aquarium and reptile centers and a pet adoption center. As general contractor, Bob Moore Construction worked with 31 outside vendors contracted through PETCO for the scheduling, delivery and installation of materials. Additionally, 38 national accounts were incorporated into the project, ranging from HVAC rooftop units to cart bumpers.
