Pet Supplies Plus Coming to Lightfoot Marketplace

JAMES CITY-A new pet supply store is opening in the Lightfoot Marketplace shopping center.

Pet Supplies Plus is taking over the storefront left vacant by Pet Valu as well as a neighboring suite. Pet Valu closed all of its U.S. locations in December.

This will be the second Pet Supplies Plus location for owners Scott and Roxanne Bobowicz, who opened their first store in Chesapeake in 2019. The new store will be nearly double the size of the old Pet Valu and is expected to open its doors in late summer.

“We feel that the Lightfoot area really needs a local neighborhood pet store so that neighbors don’t have to drive across town for their pet needs,” Roxanne Bobowicz said.

Pet Supplies Plus is a franchise that sells pets such as fish, reptiles, hermit crabs, tarantulas, birds, guinea pigs, and hamsters.

“We’ll also carry food, tanks, cages, and everything in between,” Roxanne Bobowicz said.

The new pet store will also carry a variety of pet food for cats and dogs and feature a bakery with specialized treats including birthday cakes and cupcakes.

Neighbors will also be able to wash their dogs at Pet Supplies Plus, which will have a grooming station with a self-service dog wash.

“No appointments are necessary,” Roxanne Bobwicz said. “You can come in and wash your dog and leave the mess behind.”
