Store pet

A pet store, also known as a pet shop, is a retail business that sells animals and pet supplies. The pet store industry is estimated to be worth $50 billion in the United States.

Most pet stores sell a variety of animals, including dogs, cats, birds, fish, small mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Many pet stores also carry pet supplies, including food, treats, toys, leashes, bedding, and cages. Some pet stores offer grooming and boarding services.

The pet store industry has been growing in recent years. The number of pet stores in the United States has grown from 24,000 in 1994 to 34,000 in 2009. This growth can be attributed to a number of factors, including the increasing popularity of pets, the growing number of single-person households, and the increasing number of people who are living in urban areas.

The pet store industry is highly competitive. The largest chains, such as PetSmart and Petco, account for a significant share of the market. These chains offer a wide variety of products and services, and they typically have lower prices than smaller stores.

Many pet stores are family-owned businesses. These stores typically offer a more personal level of service than the large chains and typically specialize in a certain type of pet or pet supplies.

The pet store industry has been criticized for selling animals from puppy mills and other large-scale animal breeding operations. The animal welfare organization PETA has released several undercover videos showing the conditions at some puppy mills.

Despite the criticism, the pet store industry continues to grow. The pet industry has been recession-proof, and it is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.
