JAMES CITY-The New pet store Pet Supplies Plus will open in Lightfoot Marketplace shopping center at the end of October.
The pet supply store will take over the storefront that was left vacant last year by Pet Valu as well as a neighboring space. This will be the second Pet Supplies Plus store for owners Scott and Roxanne Bobowicz, who first opened a location in Chesapeake in 2019.
Pet Supplies Plus is a franchise that carries pets such as fish, reptiles, hermit crabs, tarantulas, birds, guinea pigs, and hamsters. The new pet store will also offer a variety of pet food for cats and dogs and include a bakery with specialized treats like birthday cakes and cupcakes. Pet Supplies Plus also plans to have a grooming station with a self-service dog wash.
The owners first announced plans to open Pet Supplies Plus in Lightfoot back in March.
