CONROE, TX -- Pet Supplies Plus will open a location on Friday, October 29 at 1317 W Davis St, Ste. F in Conroe and will offer local pet parents a hassle-free way to find better products for their pets, while saving them money and celebrating the fun of pet ownership. The store will offer amenities such as a highly experienced groomer in a brand-new state of the art salon, with full services for dogs as well as cats. In addition, there are self-pet wash stations, online ordering with both free home delivery and curbside pickup. The pet care team will provide carry-out service to assist with getting heavy items to neighbors’ cars.

The store is owned by local resident Jonathan Barlow. With a background in computer science, Barlow worked as a high tech entrepreneur for 30 years. Once COVID-19 hit, he retired and looked into franchising. After much research, he pursued Pet Supplies Plus because of its leadership guidance, strength on the market and his love for animals. Barlow will operate his first Pet Supplies Plus location with his partner, Heather Wakefield. Heather has a menagerie of pets in her household, and with her background in finance recruitment as well as digital marketing, she will ensure that each Pet Supplies Plus neighbor receives the highest quality of service and care for their pets. This is the team’s first location but they are interested in opening more locations in the future. As a community partner Barlow, will partner with local animal shelters, rescue organizations and non-profits to host year-round adoption events, fundraisers and pet food and product drives.

“I think the best way to build ties in the community is by being involved,” said Barlow. “We are excited to open our first Pet Supplies Plus in Conroe and build long-lasting relationships with our neighbors. We are committed to our neighbor’s success and the health of their pets and intend to provide friendly service and quality products to our Conroe neighbors.”

To welcome the community, Barlow, will host a weekend long grand opening event. Beginning on Saturday, December 11 and continuing through Sunday, December 12, the new Pet Supplies Plus will offer special prize giveaways, sale prices and more. The primary giveaways are as follows:

  • Saturday, December 11 – Sunday, December 12 – Neighbors have a shot at winning a complimentary, one-year supply of dog or cat food.
  • Saturday, December 11 – Mystery scratch cards, between the amounts of $5-$50, will be given to neighbors throughout the day.
  • Sunday, December 12 – The first 100 neighbors who enter the store will receive a coupon for a free, small bag of Redford Naturals dog or cat food.

Pet Supplies Plus will offer Conroe pet parents a wide selection of natural pet foods, goods and pet services at low prices and focus on a unique, rich in-store experience for “neighbors” (the term Pet Supplies Plus uses for customer).

Pet parents are always welcome to shop with their dogs at the store, where knowledgeable team members are on-site to answer questions, offer tips or just get on their hands and knees to play with pets who enter the store.

Neighbors have access to an experienced and knowledgeable team to help them find everything they need. Each team member is trained in the areas of natural and holistic foods and are able to answer a broad range of questions about dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and fish. Shoppers can also take advantage of the free Preferred Pet Club, which offers members regular coupons targeted for the products they purchase frequently and monthly specials, resulting in big savings.
