The pet store chain Petco has announced that it will be closing its doors in Hewlett, NY. The company made the announcement on its website, saying that the store would be closing its doors for good on January 31st, 2020.
This news comes as a shock to many in the community, as the Petco has been a staple in the area for years. The store has been a go-to destination for pet owners looking for food, supplies, and even adoption services.
While the company has not given a official reason for the closure, it is speculated that it may be due to the recent opening of a new Petsmart location in the area. This new store may have taken away some of Petco’s business, leading to the decision to close.
Whatever the reason for the closure, it is sure to be a sad day for pet owners in Hewlett when Petco shuts its doors for good.
