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.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
