New pet supply store opening in south Charlotte

A local businessman is opening Pet Supplies Plus in the Carmel Commons shopping center next weekend.

The 10,000 square foot store is set open Saturday, August 11. The store is owned and operated by Matt Grimm. In addition to pet food and supplies, the store will also offer grooming services.

“We understand the special bond between owners and their pets, and at the end of the day, we believe that pets own people – not the other way around,” said Grimm, in an email. “We look forward to becoming an integral part of the Charlotte community and getting to know all the neighborhood pets and their people by name.”

To mark the opening, the store will have a celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on August 11, with over $750 worth of prizes, as well as free pet nail clipping and free food.

The store will also host events such as pet adoptions from local shelters and low-cost vaccine clinics. You can check out the local store's Facebook page here.

I had a Pet Supplies Plus near me in Winston Salem that was absolutely fabulous. I was so disappointed when I went to find my dog's favorite treats and learned that Pet Supplies Plus are one of the very few retailers in NC that stocks my dog's locally-made, small business treats and that there was not one anywhere near Charlotte. I asked a friend in Raleigh to visit a store there for me until he saw this article this morning. I am so excited and can't wait to patronize a local business with high quality products instead of a big box chain. I wish this article spoke more about the amazing variety I'm sure Mr. Grimm will offer. All of the locally-owned pet supply stores I know about up in Huntersville have shut down (Pet Mania, City Paws), so I'll be making the drive to South Charlotte for sure.

There's already a smaller pet store right across the street that offers the same products and services.

I've shopped at Pet Supplies Plus stores elsewhere, and they are FINALLY coming to Charlotte is music to my ears!!! You will find this store to be the most unique pet supply store out there. I don't know how they do it, but they sell over 10,000 different items and have a wider selection on the natural/organic foods than anywhere else I've seen, and their prices are better that Petsmart. Add the fact that its locally owned, and this is my new pet store. CANNOT wait.

The Pet Supply Plus store is also locally owned and operated, you can't beat the deals and the quality of the products and services that it provides. Choose what is right and best for you and your animal.

I just got back from shopping at this store and I was amazed at the selection and the helpfulness of the staff...I met the owner, Matt, and he was so nice! I've found a new home for keeping my Golden Retriever well fed!!!!
