East Cobb pet owners will soon have another major retail choice for pet supplies.
Petco will open soon in the former Pet Supermarket location at the Woodlawn Point shopping center on Johnson Ferry Road.
The store will also include the adjacent space by Sweet Spirit, the Christian book and gift store that has moved to the nearby Woodlawn Square Shopping Center.
Petco will be directly competing in East Cobb with at Merchant's Walk Shopping Center, also located in the Johnson Ferry Road corridor. They are the two largest pet superstore chains in the country, according to Pet Business.
Petco, which has more than 1,100 stores in all 50 states, has other Cobb locations near Town Center and Cumberland malls.
PetSmart has a similar number of stores nationwide, and has stores in Acworth and Smyrna.
