Key facts about the company
While other retailers retract physical locations, PetSmart continues to open new stores. That said, e-commerce cannot be ignored. Amazon, Walmart, and other online platforms are also joining the segment for animal supply, challenging PetSmart's market share; Amazon has even launched its own premium pet brand, Wag. Besides its own website, with Chewy.com's acquisition in 2017, PetSmart has taken a big step into e-commerce. In mid-2019, Chewy was public, raised approximately $1 billion, and left PetSmart with 70% of shares.
The business concentrated on the service side of small animal protection to draw consumers to its shops. Grooming, animal care, boarding, day camps, and vet services focus on a growing niche industry and diversify the revenue stream for PetSmart. The supermarket chain runs more than 200 boarding facilities at PetsHotels in the store and the Doggie Day Camps, mostly used by the higher income customer. It continues to open new PetHotels, predicting that 400 of them would be in demand. In 2018, PetSmart started accepting independent veterinary operators (IVOs) to increase vet services availability. In Las Vegas, the first IVO was opened then.
Besides, PetSmart has updated its loyalty program, modernized its product selection, and introduced new store activities. Millennials and younger consumers usually want experience, not just goods and services, so the company has launched Sample Saturdays (monthly degustation of new treats for animals) and Camp Critters (a summertime education series).
