"I wanted to do the same for the pet store scene, and that's why we called it Petland, like Disneyland." That's the way it was 40 years ago when Disneyland inspired Kunzleman to reinvent the pet store.
The first Petland store opened in 1967 in Chillicothe, Ohio, USA. Now there are over 200 locations striving to be bright and sparkling-cleanand the provider of pets, pet supplies and pet education throughout the world.
