West Seattle biz: Petco moves tonight, opens new store tomorrow

If you’re a customer of Petco in The Junction, you’ve probably heard they’re opening their new Capco Plaza location – 41st/Alaska, next to the new state liquor store (as first reported here in February) – tomorrow. And like its new neighbors, Petco’s making its move without missing any days of business. WSB contributor Keri DeTore just talked with store manager Ann, who says moving trucks are expected around 3 pm (that’s why the NO PARKING signs are up in front of the store). The old store will be open till 6 tonight, and Keri says they have a shelf full of free stuff they’d rather not move. Grooming is closed for today, though nail trims will resume after 3. Then tomorrow at 9, Ann told Keri, the new store will open with everything up and running: “It’s brand-spankin’ new in there. So clean, it’s lovely.” They’ll have grand-opening events this weekend including a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday morning just before 9. P.S. The current Petco space is still listed as available for lease.

    Terrific news! Sadly, I’m going to miss out on the “free stuff shelf” tonight, but I’ll be there tomorrow morning to enjoy their new home.

    Thanks for keeping us informed, WSB. = )

    Did they move the escaped crickets too?

    I just hope that Hancock Fabrics will think about moving into the old Petco store!

    Yeah that’s what we need at the Junction. Yarn! How exciting.
