The Pawtucket Redevelopment Agency (PRA), the City of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and Pet Food Experts have signed a purchase and sale agreement for Pet Food Experts to purchase a three-story downtown Pawtucket building for their future national corporate headquarters.
Upon the completion of the sale of the building, the company will renovate the 24,000-square-foot second floor, before moving from its current office space. Pet Food Experts' current corporate headquarters and warehouse in Cumberland, Rhode Island, will remain as their Northeast Distribution Center.
“With so much of our company and family history here in the state of Rhode Island, we are thrilled to find the perfect place in the heart of Pawtucket to accommodate our growing company,” said Michael G. Baker, owner and president of Pet Food Experts.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
