Pet Valu, a specialty retailer of premium pet food, treats and supplies, takes classification as an essential retailer seriously and is committed to being open for devoted pet lover customers. To support this mission, Pet Valu has announced temporary changes to store operations to limit the physical interactions between associates and customers, as well as ensure the continued safe operation of all stores.
To ensure the community's safety, Pet Valu stores have implemented the following:
In addition to these store updates, home delivery is available through Pet Valu's sister company, Pet Supermarket. Brands including Performatrin, Performatrin Ultra, Fresh 4 Life, Head to Tail and others are available for delivery. Additionally, customers can still earn Pet Points Plus rewards with purchases made on PetSupermarket.com and are asked to save receipts and confirmation emails for future credits to accounts.
"We believe taking these actions offer the best solutions for balancing our three main priorities: safety of our associates and devoted pet lover customers, servicing the essential needs of pets and maintaining a clean and sanitized work environment," stated Richard Maltsbarger, president and CEO of Pet Valu. "I want to thank all of our associates and customers for working together through this difficult time to find the best ways possible to continue to care for the pets we all love."
Pet Valu is closely following all regulations regarding COVID-19 and continually keeping the safety and health of associates and customers top of mind. Visit https://us.petvalu.com/ for more information and updates.
