PetSmart will open at Hunting Hills Shopping Center next to Kohl’s in March or April, according to PetSmart spokesman Jeff Davis.
PetSmart has signed a lease to open its second Roanoke store at Hunting Hills Shopping Center, according to a statement from the Virginia Beach real estate company that represented PetSmart in lease negotiations.
The pet store will open in a 17,168 square foot space at the shopping center, which is anchored by Kohl’s, according to Divaris Real Estate’s statement. The statement did not say where in the shopping center the store would be located or when the store might open. Calls to Divaris and PetSmart were not immediately returned.
PetSmart said last summer that it had plans to open a second store in Roanoke. A few months later a PetSmart spokeswoman said there were no definite plans for the second store. In the meantime, Petland, located in a retail center next to Hunting Hills Shopping Center, closed. The owner of Petland said at the time of the closing that he was retiring and could not find a buyer for the store.
