Vancouver-based petfood retailer Petcetera to close six more stores

Stores will close by end of May 2014 as part of ongoing restructuring

Vancouver, Canada-based petfood retailer Petcetera will close six more stores in six cities by May 31, 2014, as part of an ongoing restructuring by the company, according to reports.

Stores in Penticton B.C., Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Dartmouth, N.S., are the latest closures, on top of two in Abbotsford B.C., and Niagara Falls, Ont., that were announced in March.

The company said in March that it planned to file for creditor protection. This is the second major downsizing for Petcetera since 2009, when the number of stores in its retail network was cut to 18 from 50. It said Monday that it currently employs more than 300 employees in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia locations.
